“Onwards we go”, “Everyone should be scared” – Liverpool fans react to 4-0 thrashing of Red Star

A rampant performance saw Liverpool clinch a valuable 4-0 victory over Red Star in the Champions League, and fans were happy to see the Reds find their fluency.

Liverpool 4-0 Red Star

Champions League Group Stage, Anfield
October 24, 2018

Goals: Firmino 20’, Salah 45, 51’, Mane 80’

A dominant display saw Liverpool back in the goals at Anfield as they claimed three valuable points in the Champions League to catapult them to the top of Group C.

The Reds’ front three were all in on the action as Jurgen Klopp’s chargers put a slow start to proceedings behind them to emphatically send Red Star back to Serbia with little to cling to ahead of the return leg.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the result on social media and our forums.


Fans were impressed as Shaqiri and Fabinho flexed their muscles…

”What a signing Shaqiri has been, wow. Now he needs to play in that atm all the time because without him we’ve been struggling in attack. Fabinho has been impressive as well.”

Devasheesh Pillai on Facebook.

“I’m loving Fabinho and Shaqiri playing in the midfield. That creativity that Shaqiri offers is exactly what was missing for us.

Fabinho bossing the midfield and letting the fullbacks bomb up has been great to see…

“Lazy start to the game by Liverpool though, but this formation might be better for us in the longer run.”

Salah’s milestone was something to behold…


Despite a slow start Reds were overjoyed to see Liverpool find their attacking fluency…

“Excellent game, four goals without reply! Hope that gives the team a lot of confidence for the weekend.”

“Offensive wise, today’s performance among the best this season with those rapid flowing moves.”
