Liverpool's 61 points from their opening 21 games is now the best ever start to a season from an English top flight club.
The Brazilian forward fired home from close range to score his seventh league goal of the campaign.
Liverpool were allowed to extend their lead at the top following Leicester City's shock 2-1 home defeat to Southampton on Saturday.
Manchester City have the chance to reduce the gap at the top as they face Aston Villa on Sunday.
