Reds Unleashed

Liverpool come into this match in good form, recording an incredible 7-0 win away against Maribor on Tuesday night.

It was the Reds biggest ever away win, in a completely one-sided Champions League encounter.

Roberto Firmino opened the scoring for the visitors inside five minutes (4), with Phillippe Coutinho doubling their advantage (13).

Mohammed Salah continued his fine start for Liverpool with goals three and four (19, 39), before Firmino added his second and Liverpool's fifth (54).

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (86) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (90) put the icing on the cake for the Reds, completing a mammoth win for the Reds.

Pressure Relieved
