Liverpool have scored a total of 113 goals during a fantastic 2018/19 season, but which 10 strikes stand out from the rest?
The Reds fell painfully short of winning the Premier League title on Sunday, but their efforts cannot be questioned in the slightest.
As usual, Liverpool have entertained supporters with some magical football throughout the campaign, with some stunning goals scored along the way.
10. Roberto Firmino – Man City 2-1 Liverpool
Reds fans may never wish to watch back the 2-1 defeat to City in January – incredibly their only Premier League defeat of the season – but Roberto Firmino‘s equaliser should be a goal that is treasured.
9. Gini Wijnaldum – Liverpool 3-0 Bournemouth
The Dutchman made a clever run into the penalty area, receiving Robertson’s pinpoint pass, before lofting a beautiful effort over Artur Boruc.
It was the kind of goalscoring ability that was more on show during Wijnaldum’s Newcastle days and perfectly illustrated the technical quality he possesses.
8. Mohamed Salah – Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool
One of his best strikes of another influential season was the hat-trick-completing effort at Bournemouth before Christmas.
The Egyptian pounced on some shaky defending and raced through, rounding Asmir Begovic, dummying him and finishing calmly.
7. Roberto Firmino – Liverpool 5-1 Arsenal
The standout moment was Firmino’s second goal, on an evening when the Brazilian registered a hat-trick.
The ball broke to him 40 yards from goal, before a slaloming run saw him beat two Arsenal defenders and fire into the net, sending Anfield wild.
6. Mohamed Salah – Southampton 1-3 Liverpool
In what was undoubtedly one of the best moments of Liverpool‘s campaign, Salah kept the Reds’ title charge alive.
The 26-year-old proceeded to run at the Saints defence, aided by a typically unselfish run by Firmino, and then curl a perfect finish in off the post.
The away end erupted, as Salah yet again showed how priceless he is.
5. Daniel Sturridge – Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool
The striker’s impact at Stamford Bridge will not be forgotten, however, when it looked as though the Reds were crashing to their first league defeat of 2018/19.
With just a few minutes remaining, Sturridge took aim and bent a superb effort into the top corner, silencing his former team and preserving Liverpool‘s unbeaten run.
There have been few better natural finishers at Anfield over the last decade.
4. Divock Origi – Liverpool 4-0 Barcelona
Liverpool‘s 4-0 victory over Barcelona last week was a truly great night in Reds history, capped off by one of the most original goals in years.
With the scores tied on aggregate, a piece of opportune magic from Alexander-Arnold saw him whip a quickly-taken corner into the box while Barca were napping.
It was as much Alexander-Arnold’s goal as it was Origi’s.
3. Sadio Mane – Liverpool 5-0 Watford
Mane has been his side’s most consistent attacking player since August and it was in and around the 5-0 thrashing of Watford in February that he really started to hit top gear.
The Senegalese scored an outrageous goal to put Liverpool 2-0 up early on Anfield, making up for a heavy touch by producing a remarkable back-heeled finish past Ben Foster.
In terms of unique individual artistry, few goals have been bettered anywhere over the past nine months.
2. Mohamed Salah – Liverpool 2-0 Chelsea
Behind the smiles, Salah is ruthless operator, and somebody for whom criticism will only spur him on.
A huge occasion at Anfield saw the Reds needing a win to keep the pressure on City, but they were only 1-0 up early in the second half.
Salah then produced one of his greatest moments for Liverpool yet, cutting inside and burying an unstoppable shot into the top corner from 30 yards.
1. Sadio Mane – Bayern Munich 1-3 Liverpool
Picking a No.1 is always going to be subjective, but Mane’s unbelievable solo effort away to Bayern Munich tops the pile.
The scores were still locked at 0-0 on aggregate, following a stalemate at Anfield, when the forward stunned the Allianz Arena.
Virgil van Dijk‘s inch-perfect long pass was killed in an instant by Mane’s first touch, and he then dummied Manuel Neuer and dinked the ball into the net.
It was piece of genius by not only one of the Premier League‘s best players, but also one of Europe’s finest.
Having said that, here’s hoping a new No.1 takes Mane’s place in Madrid next month!
