The Reds encountered their biggest European match for almost a decade, as a superb City side arrived on Merseyside as favourites.
The scenes outside the ground were memorable before the match, as thousands of supporters lined the streets in their droves.
Once inside Anfield, the atmosphere was at its stunning best, with the Liverpool side lining up for their pre-match photo.
After a slightly slow start, Liverpool found themselves in dream land, with Mohamed Salah firing home his 38th goal of an astonishing season.
Oxlade-Chamberlain, becoming such an influential figure now, rifled a stunning 30-yard shot into the Kop net, and he celebrated in style.
Trent Alexander-Arnold, arguably Man of the Match on the night, was absolutely loving life…
It was soon 3-0, with Sadio Mane heading home…
Liverpool held on after the break, producing an admirable defensive performance, and the players expressed their joy at the final whistle…
Up next for the Reds is Saturday’s Merseyside derby at Everton, before the return leg against City next Tuesday.
What a season this is threatening to be!
