Video: Liverpool FC’s top 10 Premier League matches of 2016/17

Liverpool FC were involved in some memorable Premier League games this season, but which match stands out from the rest in 2016/17?

The Reds have gained a reputation as one of most entertaining teams in the country, which is both a compliment and a criticism in equal measure.

On their day, Jurgen Klopp‘s side can blow anyone away with their breathless attacking football, but they can also fall apart at will, too.

In a 38-game season that produced many great contests, LFCTV have counted down the Reds’ 10 best league matches, with some interesting results.

The countdown starts with Liverpool’s two most recent matches, with the final day win at home Middlesbrough up first, followed by the 4-0 drubbing of West Ham at the London Stadium.

In at number eight is the swatting aside of Everton at Anfield last month, while the richly-deserved 3-1 home triumph over Arsenal comes in next.

The Gunners’ north London rivals Tottenham were dispatched of in similar style on Merseyside, and that win comes in ahead of the New Year’s Eve defeat of Man City, with Gini Wijnaldum scoring the only goal.

In fourth place is the unforgettable 1-0 victory at Goodison Park just before Christmas. While it may not have been a classic for the neutral, Sadio Mane‘s last-gasp winner was the stuff of dreams for Reds around the world.

Into the top-three, and the 6-1 annihilation of Watford makes the cut. Liverpool were on fire at that point, with the title genuinely feeling within reach.

The runners-up prize goes to the 4-1 mauling of champions Leicester City in front of the newly-opened Main Stand, with the Foxes powerless to do anything on the day.

There was only won winner, though – the opening day win at Arsenal.

Liverpool’s prevailed in an epic clash, coming from behind to lead 4-1, before almost gifting Arsene Wenger’s side a point.

Mane made a dream debut, Philippe Coutinho was unplayable and the travelling Reds were given the perfect start to the season.

All in all, it was a very enjoyable campaign.
