Very few stadiums in European football compare to Anfield when it comes to atmosphere, especially when there's a lot at stake.

During Tuesday night's crunch match with Napoli in the Champions League, Liverpool fans were in a rapturous mood as they roared their side on to victory.

Mohamed Salah grabbed the all-important goal in the 34th minute to fire the Reds through to the last 16 alongside Paris Saint-Germain.

The sheer noise generated by Liverpool fans undoubtedly inspired the win to some extent as they sung their hearts out from start to finish.

Whether it was singing 'You'll Never Walk Alone' for minutes on end or chanting one of the players' names, the home support on Merseyside was relentless.

Jurgen Klopp demanded a crazy atmosphere before the game to spur his players on and that's exactly what he got, so he thanked Liverpool fans in his post-match interview.

"I want to say thank you, Anfield," the German said, per Liverpool's website. "It was unbelievable what the people did tonight.

"The atmosphere they created was just so special. I couldn't be more proud of all the people involved - thank you."

Liverpool fans have had a lot to cheer about this season so it's no wonder they're in such buoyant moods at the moment.

Something special is happening under Klopp and every week there is increased belief that this could be their year, whether it's in the Premier League or Champions League.

It's hard not to be impressed by the support Liverpool receive every week, even as a rival fan, and hearing them against Napoli even made a certain Bobby Zamora get all emotional.

Zamora, who retired in 2016, watched the game and tweeted how much he misses being a professional footballer after listening to Liverpool fans - that's how good they were on Tuesday.

"Watching Liverpool and just hearing the fans sing has made me sad," wrote Zamora. "I miss playing football and miss playing at some of the worlds greatest stadiums."

Says it all really. If hearing Liverpool fans sing and chant makes Zamora miss professional football, then imagine how Liverpool players must feel on the pitch just metres away.

As previously mentioned something special is happening at Liverpool and the club's supporters are certainly playing a big role in that.
