Liverpool were 4-0 up shortly before half-time as Salah rounded off an impressive individual 45 minutes with his second goal of the evening.
Here are all the reactions from Liverpool supporters throughout the game.
Fans were once again surprised to see Robertson left out of the squad…
Anyone know why Robertson is not even making the bench for games, odd situation

Bit of a shock that Ox isn't starting but Kloppo did say there would only be a couple of changes. Must win game for me.

“Milner? Didn’t see that coming! Ox must have the right hump not even being selected for against minnows.”
– Gallardoguy on the forums.
Either Klopp is extremely cautious of playing players who haven't had a preseason under him or he doesn't rate AOC or Robertson

They were in awe of Salah’s pace to set up Firmino’s opening goal…
“Mo, you look like Messi!”
– Abu Lulu on Facebook.
Signing Mohamed Salah for £34million looks like a better deal every game. Great pace shown in that goal.

“Absolute speed demon that Salah…”

And when Liverpool went 3-0 up within 20 minutes, fans were delighted!
These reds are scoring faster than I can read tweets. #YNWA

19 mins gone: #LFC lead by 3 at Maribor… Goals a bit like busses for Liverpool, you wait for ages & then 3 come along in quick succession

3 in 20 mins. We’re playing the Slovenian Arsenal ?
— Harinder Singh (@Harinder1977) October 17, 2017
There was plenty of praise for Milner’s performance throughout…
Have to say, Milner is doing well for a 3rd choice left-back being squeezed into a midfield role ?
— The LFC Couch ?? (@LFCCouch) October 17, 2017
“Milly making the difference! Klopp take note.”
– on Facebook.
James Milner doing more in 12 minutes than Henderson has all season

And fans were happy Oxlade-Chamberlain got his name on the scoresheet…
Oxlade-Chamberlain is better than Ronaldo
— ?? (@SimplyKeita) October 17, 2017
It was no surprise that fans were absolutely delighted at full-time…
Don't care if it's Maribor, that was an excellent win for Liverpool. Real confidence-booster for everyone; so many positives to take. ?

Would have taken 7-0 before the start if you had offered it TBH

“Wow, what a result! Someone was always going to get a doing of us. Poor Maribor!”

What a night. Simply cannot fault a single player. Salah/Milner/Coutinho for MOM.
— Scott Groom (@ScottCGroom) October 17, 2017
“7-0 and top of the group. I’ll take that! Hopefully this will give us the confidence in front of goal to smash a few past Spurs!”

Easy to dismiss that but Liverpool have made a meal of games like that before. Tonight they were utterly clinical & totally in control.

“Well done lads. We’ve taken beating minnows for granted too often and come up short.”
– Sugar Ray on the forums.
Scoring 7 goals away from home in the Champions League is some achievement, regardless of opposition. Class apart tonight.
— Leanne Prescott (@_lfcleanne) October 17, 2017
Great result Liverpool. You can only beat what's put in front of you. Consummate, professional performance and nice to see Chamberlain score

FT 0-7. As perfect an away performance in Europe can get. Delighted for Oxlade-Chamberlain to get his first goal.
