Manchester City have blown away everyone in their path this season - except for Liverpool.
The two clubs have played each other four times - twice in the Premier League and meeting in a two-legged Champions League quarter-final tie - and Liverpool have emerged victorious on three occasions.
Man City may have secured the most emphatic victory, thrashing the Reds 5-0 in September, but it’s still a mightily impressive achievement for Jurgen Klopp and his players.
To beat Pep Guardiola’s side 3-0 at Anfield in the first leg of their quarter-final tie was brilliant; to then go to the Etihad Stadium and win after surrendering an early goal says a lot about how far Liverpool have come under Klopp.
They now have a semi-final matchup against Roma to look forward to, and many are ready to put their name in the final already.
Liverpool inflicted the first defeat of the league season on Man City with a thrilling 4-3 victory back in January.
It was Liverpool’s first game since Philippe Coutinho left for Barcelona but any concerns surrounding the Merseyside club were erased with a superb display.
Sterling was 'raging'
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain got Liverpool up and running with a fine strike in the in the ninth minute, and it led to an interesting exchange with his good friend Raheem Sterling.
Speaking to Colossal TV, the Ox has revealed that he just had to catch Sterling’s eye after opening the scoring.
“On the way back? Course I did. Had to let him know I’d arrived,” the England international said, per the Mirror. “I was in the game, had to let him know I was in the game.
“On the way back I was definitely thinking, 'Where’s Raz?' I clocked eyes and there wasn’t really much love coming back."
Sterling joined Oxlade-Chamberlain for the interview and he admitted he was “raging” after seeing the Liverpool midfielder score.
If any Liverpool player was going to score, Sterling really didn’t want it to be Oxlade-Chamberlain.
“I went to bed fuming, because I could see his little face grinning when he came back," the 23-year-old said. "He’s my boy and everything, but I was raging.
"To my team-mates I was like 'anybody else', on the day I’d want anyone else to score."
Sterling then had to watch Oxlade-Chamberlain score Liverpool’s second goal in the recent 3-0 win.
