It's now three years since Jurgen Klopp took over from Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool at the Reds have been on a hell of a journey since.

It's safe to say that Rodgers' side had lost their way after an incredible 13/14 season that arguably should have ended with the Premier League title.

Their Champions League efforts the following season showed Liverpool's downfall, however, as they failed to get out of the group and practically threw in the towel against Real Madrid.

Contrast that to the end of Klopp's second season when his team lined up against Real in the final of the competition and were unfortunate not to take more away.

That was the third final that Liverpool have reached under Klopp, although all three have simply led to regrets over what could have been, rather than the silverware they crave.

It means that the highlights of the Klopp era tend to be moments and matches, rather than achievements - but that's not to say they're not incredibly memorable.

And we recently learned what Klopp himself holds as the highlight of his Anfield career so far when the question was put to him by a fan.

Klopp had 'taken over' New Balance's Instagram account for a Q&A with fans and among such questions as what his favourite food is (Käsespätzle) and who his idol was (Karlheinz Förster), the Liverpool boss gave his favourite Anfield moment.

Jurgen Klopp revealed his favourite Anfield moment since joining Liverpool in 2015.

"My favourite Anfield moment so far is the moment when Dejan Lovren scored the fourth goal against [Borussia] Dortmund, to be 100% honest," he said. "It was a special day for me, a special day for the club, and the best atmosphere we've had."

You can check out Klopp's Q&A below:

Liverpool's game with Dortmund was undoubtedly a classic; the Reds went into the game knowing a 0-0 draw or a win was enough to put them into the Europa League final.

Goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Marco Reus had them 3-1 down at 65 minutes, despite Divock Origi's strike.

But then a magical night at Anfield got going as Philippe Coutinho pulled one back for Liverpool.

Mamadou Sakho tied the game up ten minutes later, leaving Liverpool fifteen minutes to find one more goal.

Then, with the game now in stoppage time, Lovren rose a the back post to head home a fourth and send Klopp and his team into the final.

It was an incredible moment and one that Klopp rightfully holds at the top of his list of favourites.

Shame about that final, eh?
