Coutinho: It was special to captain Liverpool at Anfield

07 Diciembre 2017

The Liverpool boss also insisted that Spartak Moscow are a good side, however his men started well and laid the foundations for a memorable evening at Anfield.

Unable to react quickly enough to Mane's cross, the German centre-back inadvertently presented the ball on a plate to Firmino, who used the outside of his right foot to steer a shot past Aleksandr Selikhov.

"I feel great joy". But I think all of the Liverpool players have been buying into the Jurgen Klopp way of late.

The Reds scored two goals within four minutes on two occasions, netted a penalty (Coutinho's first) and barely gave goalkeeper Loris Karius much to do at the back.

Portuguese side, FC Porto sealed their qualification for the next round with a 5-2 home victory over French champions, Monaco. But it has been a very different story this season for the French champion and coach Leonardo Jardim's side was already guaranteed to finish last. There was no clumsy passing, no panic in possession and no ineffective defensive work, but two tackles apiece, a combined five interceptions, and pass-completion rates both above 90%. Jeremiah St Juste then made it 2-1 at the death for the Dutch champions after they had Tonny Vilhena sent off.

The ex-Reds striker claims the trio of Daniel Sturridge, Louis Suarez and Raheem Sterling was better. But we also know if we lose tonight the most likely outcome is we won't qualify. Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mané, and Mohamed Salah were all in top, top form on a night when the only negatives for the Reds were an Emre Can yellow card and Alberto Moreno injury.

Beşiktaş ended their group stage on a high registering a last-gasp 2-1 win over RB Leipzig. The same scoreline as in Sevilla but surely Liverpool wouldn't fold again?

"The Champions League is a competition that I love to play and score in, as you can see", Ronaldo told UEFA.com.

Group E winners Liverpool joined Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur in progressing from the group phase, making England the first country to send five teams into the round of 16.
