Champions League final goalscorer Divock Origi was among those to find the net as England youth international Rhian Brewster hit a brace.
James Milner turned in an influential first-half performance in midfield alongside Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Adam Lallana.

France international Florian Thauvin pulled one back for Andre Villas-Boas' side, who went down to Sean McConville's header and Offrande Zanzala's penalty before half-time.
