The best of the photos from Liverpool 3-0 Man City

4 April 2018

An unforgettable night unfolded at Anfield on Wednesday, as Liverpool beat Man City 3-0 in the Champions League quarter-final first leg.


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.

Klopp made two changes to the team that beat Crystal Palace 2-1 on Saturday, with Dejan Lovren and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in for Joel Matip and Gini Wijnaldum.
