As a representation of all that popular manager Jurgen Klopp stands for, it was definitive: a relentless, hungry side all pulling in one direction - the City goal.
When asked whether he believes Firmino to be underrated, Klopp said: "I don't think so, not anymore". That's how it is.
Eriksen also starred in Tuesday's come-from-behind draw with Juventus in the Champions League - the attacking midfield man running the show in Turin to help overturn a two goal deficit by scoring the equaliser from a free kick.
The Spanish giants have recently been linked with a move for Gremio youngster Arthur, which could be their reason for wanting Coutinho to secure a Portuguese passport, which would not result in a switch in allegiance from the Brazil national team to Portugal.
It is his displays for Mauricio Pochettino's men which have piqued the current La Liga leaders' interest again, and Spurs fans will likely be concerned about a transfer saga developing akin to that which Coutinho was the subject of for almost six months.
"I think he's been one of the most important Liverpool signings and probably the best Liverpool signing in the last ten to 15 years".

While Coutinho was vital for his flashes of inspiration, which could in part explain away his occasional positional flights of fancy, his inclusion in a midfield three, especially in a Liverpool side with no specialist defensive midfielder was often problematic.
Similarly, there were reports that the player was unsettled by the speculation, and that just ties in to that emotional buy-in, that state of hypnotic seduction that is necessary to play for Klopp.
"We've played them twice and that's the highest level".
"Valverde is always explaining things to me".
Keita's dynamism, proficiency both in defensive and offensive actions, and flair on the ball means he is tailor-made for Liverpool's style.
With his publicly stated desire to emulate legend Yaya Toure, coming to the Premier League is only the first step.
