      A 2-0 win with a clean sheet tonight, could not have asked for more. Now lets carry on this form in the league and start climbing up the table, also still in the Champions league keeping our season very much alive.

      Klopp post-match on Fabinho:

      “I asked him afterwards: ‘You like the position No6 more than the other one and he said ‘Yes!’. He could not have been more clear.”

      Think we knew that.

      I think Jürgen was making a point,he knows Fab's best position.

      Lovely stuff from the redmen tonight and what a throughly enjoyable match, nice to be able to watch with some confidence.

      Deffo the best move was having Nat and Kabak in the back and moving Fab into midfield, made all the difference to our play, good all round team performance, now let's kick on with a win at Wolves on Monday, go reds !!

      Great win - thank you reds, thank you! 
      A win is a win right now, and sorely needed.  I thought Leipzig were very ordinary but we made them look it, and we should have won by 4 or 5.
      Not going overboard - there's a long hard road to the final, but damn that feels good!

      Fabinho, Philips and Thiago caught the eye but I made Gini man of the match - a performance of sheer control, devotion and industry!  We're gonna miss that fella if he goes.

      Not sure who that is, but i want Porto though i understand the easiest draw is reserved for City.

      Better starting 11, much better team performance.

      Thiago, different player in Europe.
      Fabinho, centre mid where he belongs

      Jota looked very hungry

      Salah got his reward for his hard work

      Let’s keep this up Reds !

      Fantastic win, could have had a few more but for a bit of sloppy finishing.

      Porto or Real next round, Big Nat to 'accidentally' head Ramos instead of the ball!!

      Great win against a very good side, huge difference, we could have scored a lot more, and created lots of chances, which hasn't been the case lately, quarter finals now, would be so amazing to win it,you never know 😊

      Pleased with the win but not that surprised. European football seems to still be a strength of ours.

      Still not sure we get much out of the next 4 Premier league games but this competition has been a welcome distraction for the players and ourselves.

      Hopefully the distraction continues beyond the last 8.

      Very happy but we're still very wasteful upfront. It's the issue we have had for months now. The issue has been the attack for me, not defense. Fabinho showed again how good he is. Thiago played much better with Fabinho alongside him.

      I think the Fabinho-Thiago-Keita trio can lift the team up. I'm sorry, but I won't miss Wijnaldum when he leaves, good player, very good player but at the end of the day, you should have an impact on your teammates. When Keita came in, we were direct and creative.

      That's all well and good but Naby can't string 3 games together without getting injured.

      Gini on the other hand is one of the most physically reliable players the club has ever had the lad is a machine.

      This should never be underestimated.

      In 16 double legged knockouts since his time here Jürgen has only failed to progress once against A Madrid. Colossal in Europe.

      Haven’t had much if any input due to BT not recognising my i d and password. Then the only streem I could get running kept freezing every 20 secs. So I missed the whole game. Waited all week for it, f**king bt. Just about to call them and tear into them for a rebate !

      I was going to say with the benefit of hindsight, playing Fab in midfield makes us look a better team.

      But there is no hindsight is there.

      Hope we can have Hendo back for the quarters...we might even surprise a few people.

      Extremely happy with that result and extremely happy that Klopp finally changed things up, bringing Fab back into midfield and trusting his CB's to do a job.

      Also what a difference it makes having three strikers/forwards up top instead of only two with one passenger.


      IF we can win against Wolves and in the international break get other players back fit and healthy then we still have a chance of Top 4 and CL glory.  The league is a long shot and I think we would have to win 10 games on the spin but we are capable of it if we can finally build some momentum.

      Very true,Gini is so reliable and consistent,Jürgen loves him to bits so why are FSG not giving the contract that he wants?Please don't post with it's because of his age,Gini hardly ever gets injured and his role in the team is underrated,i said previous that get rid if he doesn't sign the contract but after his statement saying how much he loves the club and that he doesn't want to leave it's a message to those handing out the contracts to give him a better/longer offer and he'll stay.Our midfield last night balanced the whole team and Fab was just that Fab-ulous,my MOTM by a mile.Please Jürgen don't put him as a CB again,leave him in midfield.
