Liverpool eased to a 3-0 victory over Maribor on Wednesday night, as the Reds remain top of their Champions League group.


Liverpool 3-0 Maribor

Champions League, Anfield
November 1, 2017

Goals: Salah 48′, Can 64′, Sturride 89′

It was a win that never really felt in doubt, even in the mind of the most pessimistic supporter.

Despite a goalless first-half, Liverpool’s quality was always going to shine through, and goals from Mohamed Salah, Emre Can and Daniel Sturridge were the difference between the two sides.

James Milner did miss a penalty, which was the only real negative on the night, and it was a job done in solid but unspectacular fashion by Klopp’s men.

Here’s how supporters reacted to Liverpool’s 3-0 win at home to Maribor on Twitter and our forums.

Andrew Robertson was once again left out of the starting lineup, and supporters were rather bemused by the decision:

“Still no Robertson”

– Zinedine Biscan on the forums.

 

Liverpool almost entirely bossed things in the opening 45 minutes, but the performance was a little flat and supporters felt frustrated.

“Updated prediction, 5-0…”

– SBYM on the forums.

 

Just three minutes into the second-half, Liverpool were ahead, as Salah eased the nerves inside Anfield with a back-heeled finish from Trent Alexander-Arnold’s pinpoint cross.

“Different side this half. Well done Kloppy.”

– theres always tomorrow on the forums.

 

Milner was then denied from the spot, as the Reds’ woes in that area continue. They have missed all four of their efforts at Anfield in 2017.

 

Can doubled the lead after a sumptuous move, firing home after a delightful one-two with Milner.

“What a brilliant worked goal, Can.”

– basil 1492 on the forums.

 

After Sturridge’s late strike and the final whistle, fans gave their assessment of the performance, on an adequate night on Merseyside.

“Not a European classic but an important win none the less. Moreno’s resurrection continues and fine Can goal. Let’s top the group.”

– Rooster on the forums.
