Liverpool were sensational in defeating Man City 3-0 on Wednesday night, and the players have been airing their views on the game on social media.
On a night that threatened to be special beforehand, Jurgen Klopp‘s side delivered in admirable fashion, sealing a truly memorable win.
The Reds then produced the kind of defensively astute performance many didn’t think they were capable of in the second-half, keeping a clean-sheet and making themselves strong favourites to progress to the semi-finals.
The players were clearly buzzing after the game, and James Milner was quick to take to Twitter to show footage of the welcome the squad received before the game:

Reflecting on his stunning strike in front of the Kop, Oxlade-Chamberlain told BT Sport that he hopes to produce such moments more consistently now.
“The space opened up for me and I’ve been working on that and trying to do that more often, so I’ve showed myself that maybe it’s on more often and I can keep doing it.”
Trent Alexander-Arnold enjoyed the greatest night of his young career to-date, in what was a Man of the Match performance in a game of such significance.
The 19-year-old took to Instagram to express his joy at the result.
Andrew Robertson was also magnificent on the other flank, as his stock continues to rise by the game.
It was good to see him being level-headed about the tie not being over, though, with City likely to respond next week.
Loris Karius is one of several much-maligned figures to have turned his Reds career around, and he was another who lauded the supporters for the incredible atmosphere they created, as City failed to live with the noise.
There is little time to bask in the glory of victory, however, as the 231st Merseyside derby looms large on Saturday lunchtime.
Then it is the return leg at the Etihad on Tuesday, which will still be a huge challenge despite the advantage Liverpool have built.
