Liverpool 4 Manchester City 3 (2018)

This was the season when Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City were at the best of their powers. No other team looked even remotely likely that they could beat the Citizens. And then came the Anfield encounter and Liverpool shattered the Invincibles’ dreams of the Sky Blues.

Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain struck the first blow for the Reds early in the first half, but City managed to restore parity through Sane by the interval. The real destruction for City came early in the second half when Mane, Firmino, and Salah all earned their names on the scoresheet to put the Merseysiders in a dominant position for victory.

Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan struck late goals to make a comeback, but it had been too late for them by then.

Liverpool 4 Borussia Dortmund 3 (2016)

This was one of the most memorable Liverpool matches under Jurgen Klopp. The Reds made a stunning comeback after it looked like they had no way back in the game.

Dortmund started dominating proceedings from the very beginning and found themselves two goals ahead within the first nine minutes. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan both scored goals to take a 3-1 aggregate lead for the German side.

Divock Origi struck for the Reds early in the second half to revive some hopes for the home fans, but that was quickly snuffed out by Marco Reus’s goal. Jurgen Klopp’s side needed to score three goals within 25 minutes, a feat which looked almost impossible.

However, Liverpool made a big comeback in the game when Philippe Coutinho and Mamadou Sakho both scored to reduce the deficit. And in the injury time, Lovren headed another goal to spark wild celebrations at Anfield.

Liverpool 4 Barcelona 0 (2019)

This match brought memories of the Miracle of Istanbul for Liverpool fans when their side had overturned a goal deficit to emerge victorious in the European Cup final.

Hopes looked very slim for Jurgen Klopp’s side after their Camp Nou defeat in the first leg of the semi-final. To make matters worse for them, two of their star players Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino missed the game due to injuries. However, they all put together an almighty effort and were rightly rewarded in the end.

The first half didn’t see a lot of fireworks, with Divock Origi only scoring a goal for the Reds. However, it was after the interval that the home side became completely unstoppable. In the space of just 122 seconds, Georginio Wijnaldum struck twice to turn the tie around.

The Spanish giants were completely shell-shocked by then as the prospect of a humiliating defeat looked in view. Their discomposure was visible in the 79th minute when Trent Alexander-Arnold caught Barca’s whole defense napping and immediately connected with Origi to score the fourth goal.
