Jurgen Klopp’s much-changed side booked their place in the semi-finals of the competition for a record 17th time at Anfield.
The 17-year-old broke Michael Owen’s record by firing home a dream first goal in front of the Kop to seal the win.
Though not a vintage performance from Liverpool, Klopp can be pleased with the efforts of his heavily rotated team, who took a step closer to earning a much-coveted first piece of silverware of the German’s tenure.
Here’s how those who earned the victory reacted to a historic night at Anfield across their various social media accounts, including reaction from the star of the game, who shared the moment with fans:
