What a night for Liverpool in the Champions League.

Famous outings in Europe's premiere competition have been few and far between in recent years, but on Wednesday, they certainly relived some of their past glory.

Their 5-0 demolition away at Champions League regular Porto will go down as one of their finest ever performances in the competition, virtually assuring them of a place in the quarter-finals.

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and a Sadio Mane hattrick sealed the emphatic win, but there were stellar performances all over the park, not just from the front three.

James Milner, Gigi Wijnaldum and Virgil van Dijk were all impressive, but it was the ever-improving Andy Robertson that shone the brightest.

The Scottish left-back actually trended on Twitter for his all-round brilliant display.

Defensively, he was a rock, but it was going forward where he really excelled, providing top-class service throughout.

Fans noticed and praised him, as did Jurgen Klopp, with the German manager giving a hilarious verdict on his £8m summer signing.


Finally, the crossing we all saw on a regular basis for Hull is back, with a bang.

His performances this season after coming in for the injured Alberto Moreno have been very admirable, but there has been some worry over his final ball.

But, against the Portuguese side, he put all doubts to bed for good. Also, the reaction he provoked from Klopp certainly had the Liverpool faithful on Twitter laughing.


Brilliant stuff.

The other thing that will have pleased Liverpool fans was the return to form of Mane, who has been struggling of late due to being in the shadows of Firmino and Salah.

However, his performance was reminiscent of last season, with the winger hailing his teammates after the match.


"It was not an easy game even though we scored 5 goals but it was more important to play as a team and we played great football from the beginning to the end,’ he said.

"We created so many chances and we scored five, it was well deserved today.

"I said all the time I want to play with these great players [Salah and Firmino], everyone always talks about the three but the team makes it easier so without the team we are nothing so they do a great job behind us and we score all the time."

Everything seems to be going right at Anfield, for a change.
