Steven Gerrard rated the Reds' first-half performance at Loftus Road as their best of the season so far, and labelled two-goal match-winner Luis Suarez as a magician following the 3-0 triumph over QPR.
Despite manager Brendan Rodgers' enforced absence from the dugout due to illness, Liverpool were dominant in London, racking up three goals during the opening period - enough to secure three points.
And the skipper said it was the least his team deserved. "I wouldn't say it was easy - that would be disrespectful to QPR," the midfielder explained post-match.
"But they're having a tough time at the moment and we knew if we started well, we could quieten this crowd and then our football would take over. It's probably the best first half we've played this season.
"We wanted more goals, that was the plan at half-time. But Harry Redknapp is a top manager - he was not going to not change things.
"He changed to three at the back, credit to him and we found it harder to get through. We played well today, we deserved the three points."
Two goals in the opening 16 minutes from Suarez - strikes which increased the Uruguayan's tally for the campaign to 16 in all competitions - set the Reds on their way to a comfortable win.
Gerrard joked that opponents should be pleased that they only have to face the No.7 twice each season.
The captain continued: "He's been brilliant for us since he came to the club - week in, week out he shows what a top player he is.
"These players have only got to play against him twice a year, we've got to train with him every day - he's a magician."
Gerrard also revealed that their manager not being present at Loftus Road provided all the inspiration required for a positive outcome in the capital.
"It was tough, there's a gap there. You can tell when Brendan is not there. He has been fantastic since he came in, he's been brilliant for the players," he concluded.
"When we knew he wasn't coming today, it was important that we got the three points for him. I'm sure he's getting looked after at home and he'll be happy with the lads today."
