Jurgen Klopp thanked Liverpool fans for creating an “unbelievable” atmosphere at Anfield on Thursday night in the Europa League against Manchester Utd.

Goals from Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firming sunk the visitors to take a 2-0 lead into next week’s second leg at Old Trafford.

Supporters created an incredible atmosphere with the Kop draped in flags, banners and scarves. Even the Main Stand let off a flare after Liverpool’s second goal of the night!

“The atmosphere tonight was unbelievable,” Klopp told reporters in his post-match press conference.

“It was really great and I want to say thank you to everyone who was involved in this atmosphere.

“It was easy to enjoy from the first to the last second. That was Liverpool how I knew it before I came here, so that was really, really great.

“Thank you for this.”
