Maribor 0-7 Liverpool

Champions League Group Stage, Stadion Ljudski vrt
October 17, 2017

Goals: Firmino 4′ & 54′, Coutinho 13′, Salah 19′ & 40′, Oxlade-Chamberlain 86′, Alexander-Arnold 89′


It didn’t take long for Liverpool to exert their dominance as Roberto Firmino netted his fifth goal of the season in just four minutes.

Philippe Coutinho quickly doubled the Reds’ lead and Liverpool were 3-0 up within 19 minutes as Mohamed Salah made sure all three forwards had their name on the scoresheet.

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.

The second half started off much the same way and after Firmino grabbed his second and Liverpool’s fifth, Jurgen Klopp made three changes with one eye on Sunday’s clash with Tottenham.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain came on to score Liverpool’s sixth goal of the night before Trent Alexander-Arnold grabbed the seventh—making it a club-record away win in Europe.

Here are all the reactions from Liverpool supporters throughout the game.
