“Devastating in the first half, dogged in the second”, “Allez allez allez” – Liverpool fans react to 3-0 win against Man City

Liverpool produced one of their great European performances, dispatching of Man City 3-0 in an epic Champions League quarter-final clash.

Liverpool 3–0 Man City

Champions League, Anfield
April 4, 2018

Goals: Salah 12′, Oxlade-Chamberlain 20′, Mane 31′

This was a night that made you immensely proud to support the Reds, as they comprehensively defeated the most in-form team in Europe.

Mohamed Salah opened the scoring, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain thundered home a second and Sadio Mane headed in a third, as Liverpool ran riot in the first-half.

They then defended resolutely after the break, keeping a clean-sheet against a team full of world-class attacking talent.

It was an evening to cherish, and leaves Jurgen Klopp‘s side in pole position to reach the semi-finals.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the win across social media and on our forums.


The result was met with unbridled joy from anyone of a Reds persuasion, with talk of it being a truly legendary display…

Earth-shattering result, only slightly tarnished by Mo’s injury.

Somehow, they played right into our hands. What a fantastic night…I thought the stadium was gonna implode after Ox rifled that one in.

Absolutely brilliant and Imperious European performance from all of our lads.

There was special praise for the magnificent Trent Alexander-Arnold, who responded unbelievably well after some criticism of late…

TAA and OX, what a performance from those two. Picked TAA but damn OX is leaving his mark in the last 2 city matches. Amazing strikes.

Sword on the forums.


The youngster wasn’t the only player earning plenty of plaudits, however, on an evening almost every player was perfect…
