Liverpool scored three times in the opening 31 minutes against Manchester City to take a giant stride towards the last four.
Jürgen Klopp promised this would be a night to remember and his side did not disappoint. As usual, Mohamed Salah led the way with the opener on 12 minutes, his finish as emphatic as the City defending was tentative.
If that got the home fans off their seats then Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s rocket midway through the half had them jumping for joy. Sadio Mané’s header on 31 minutes to make it 3-0 had the Liverpool fans in heaven.
The sight of Salah limping off with a groin problem shortly after half-time provided a dose of reality, but for all their possession City never really looked like conjuring a reply save for a late Gabriel Jesus effort ruled out for offside.
