“Salah and Firmino absolutely majestic”, “No chance they stop us scoring over there” – Fans react to Liverpool 5-2 Roma

Liverpool thrashed Roma 5-2 in a frankly ridiculous Champions League semi-final clash on Tuesday, and supporters were left stunned by the game.

The Reds met the Italian giants at Anfield, in front of one of the great atmospheres created at the ground.

In an unbelievable attacking performance by Jurgen Klopp‘s side, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino both scored twice, and Sadio Mane also found the net.

There was frustration late on, though, as goals from Edin Dzeko and Diego Perotti gave Rome some hope going into the second leg at Stadio Olimpico.

Here’s how supporters saw Liverpool’s unforgettable 5-2 victory on Facebook, Twitter and our forums.


Fans were left running out of superlatives for Salah, who took his tally to 43 goals this season and has staked a claim for being the most in-form player in the world…


An exhibition of attacking football was lauded by the masses, and confidence remained high ahead of the return fixture despite Roma’s late goals…

I am not too concerned for the away game. True Roma done it to Barcelona, but hey we are no Barcelona we are Liverpool. YNWA.

Reds on the forums.

If you were all asked “would you be happy with a 3 goal lead going to Rome?” you’d have said yes. No need for panic. We’re in control of the tie now.

There was also praise for players other than Salah, with the majestic Firmino one of those to receive heaps of adoration…
