King Salah, Kung fu Bobby and plenty more – The best photos from Liverpool’s 2017/18 season

2017/18 proved to be a memorable season of undoubted progress for Liverpool FC with plenty of unforgettable moments captured along the way.


It may not have ended in Kiev quite as we all had dreamed, but 2017/18 is a campaign that must be looked back on with nothing but a feeling of immense pride.

The Reds achieved way above expectations in Europe and produced an excellent Premier League campaign all while playing some of the best football Anfield has witnessed.

High points and special moments far outweighed the few lows throughout the season, and some of these were captured in magnificent photos during the campaign.

We’ve browsed our archives to pick our 15 favourite images from what was a memorable if not quite a truly special campaign.
