In-form Michael Owen scored twice, and Nick Barmby added the third in The Rajamangala Stadium, as Gerard Houllier's Merseysiders maintained their faultless pre-season record.
Owen sprinted clear to open the scoring after only eight minutes but Tananchai Boriban levelled matters 14 minutes later.
Good work from Vladimir Smicer and Emile Heskey enabled Owen to double his tally and regain the lead for the treble Cup winners.
Although there were other chances, it was substitute Barmby who wrapped up the scoring after Jari Litmanen's free kick hit a post.
