Red-hot Liverpool providing plenty of entertainment

Jurgen Klopp's lads are a match for any team

Mo Salah was too sharp for Southampton in Liverpool's 3-0 win at Anfield
1 of 1

Manager
Jurgen Klopp.

How they qualified
Liverpool lived up to their tag as great entertainers with some astonishing results, such as winning 7-0 away to Maribor and losing a three-goal advantage to draw in Seville, before deservedly topping Group E.

Results and fixtures

Premier League standings

Transfer action
Philippe Coutinho left in a club-record deal for Barcelona and some of that money was reinvested in Southampton centre-back Virgil van Dijk, who became the world's most expensive defender.

Last-16 first leg 
Porto 0 Liverpool 5 
Sadio Mane smashed a hat-trick in a Valentine's Day massacre of Porto. 

Last-16 second leg 
Liverpool 0 Porto 0 
With the tie effectively over Liverpool cruised into the last eight without any problems.

Quarter-final first leg 
Liverpool 3 Man City 0 
A magical first half for Liverpool blew Manchester City away with three goals in the first 31 minutes. Many thought the Reds could compete with the best but few expected them to destroy City in such a comprehensive manner. 

Quarter-final second leg 
Man City 1 Liverpool 2
City battered Liverpool during a one-sided first half but Liverpool weathered the storm and won the game with second-half goals from Salah and Firmino.

Prospects
Klopp's attack is good enough to take them deep in the Champions League and home and away wins over Man City proves they shouldn't be scared of any team.
