Steven Gerrard’s reaction wasn’t quite as manic as Phil Thompson’s, but it wasn’t half bad!
Our former captain was working the game as a pundit in the BT Sport studio when the Egyptian King made it 1-1 on the night and effectively ended the tie as a competition.
Salah had fed Sadio Mane through on goal and then followed up the rebound with superb composure.
“GET IN! Game over… Game over,” Gerrard shouted, while Rio Ferdinand screamed ‘Oh My God!” in the background!
Gerrard’s punditry is always excellent, although it makes it easier when the club who employ him put in such an impressive performance!
But to a man, Liverpool arrived last night and proved why Jurgen Klopp is such a genius.
We had a 19-year-old Academy product at right-back, an £8m former Hull defender on the other side and Gini Wijnaldum as our holding midfielder and cruised it.
Stevie celebrating that Salah Goal.
