Man City 1-2 Liverpool (1-5 agg)
Champions League Quarter-Final, Etihad Stadium
April 10, 2018
Goals: Jesus 2′; Salah 56′, Firmino 77′
After recording a dominating 3-0 victory at Anfield, Liverpool went into the second leg as huge favourites.
But it took just two minutes for Gabriel Jesus to break the deadlock and give City the lead.
City then controlled the first half and had a number of chances to score but Liverpool held on to their two-goal aggregate lead.
Here are some of the best reactions from Liverpool supporters on social media…
Fans were panicking after two minutes when Jesus scored and were not happy at half time…
Awful from VVD

Up there with the most harrowing halves of football I've ever watched.
Lucky to be 1-0, but if big improvements aren't made, Liverpool are heading out here.
Huge team talk required from Klopp – the players have frozen.

But when Salah equalised, fans were ecstatic…

So much great about that goal. Gini having an excellent half, brilliant pass from Ox to find Salah, Mane bold moving into the box and then Salah's finish…?

And at full-time fans couldn’t believe they had won and Roma had knocked out Barcelona…
Not bad for a long-ball team #MANLIV

We've just beaten the team home and away that the bookmakers had ordained tournament favourites not two weeks ago.
Drink it in.

Liverpool’s composure over the two legs was so impressive. City are brillIant but we handled what they threw at us & picked them off.
Defining moment for this team & particularly our back five who were superb again. Bursting with pride #LFC

Dejan Lovren appreciation tweet

Everyone slates him when he has a bad game, but Dejan Lovren was absolutely immense tonight. Deserves enormous credit for stepping up like that in the biggest game of his career.

James Milner was absolutely heroic in that performance. He covered every blade of grass and was pivotal in closing City down when others started to drop back.

? A great night for the club and fans. Jurgen Klopp deserves a huge amount of praise for his approach over the two games (against a fantastic team/manager). Going to be an exciting end to the season #lfc
