Carragher hails "one of the great Liverpool away performances"

Virgil van Dijk headed Liverpool into a deserved lead in the 69th minute before Mane ended any hopes of a Bayern fightback with a late far-post header from Mo Salah's cross.

They followed up a goalless first leg with an impressive 3-1 win in Germany, with Sadio Mane netting twice to make up for his first leg misses and with Virgil van Dijk scoring as well. Joel Matip was a centre-half struggling to earn Klopp's trust prior to Van Dijk's arrival, but he is now a supremely confident central defensive partner for the main man, and his own-goal against Bayern, when he could either divert the ball into his own net or leave it for Robert Lewandowski to score, should not take the shine off his performance.

So, English football is back, capped by Liverpool's victory in Munich on Wednesday night, but is the Premier League ready, once again, to dominate the Champions League?

"Liverpool on the ball in this game overall, I thought they were atrocious".

The fact they went out at the last-16 stage for only the second time since 2011 said as much about Liverpool as it did about an ageing team in need of significant rebuilding.

And in doing so, he set an all-time goalscoring record for the Anfield club! "We are on a good way and I like what the boys did tonight". "I knew we had a chance and the boys made it happen". The Senegal worldwide also headed in Liverpool's third of the night for his 10th goal in as many games in all competitions for the Merseyside club. I don't want to speak about it really.

"Sadio is on fire".

The Senegalese forward was Liverpool's star man on the night and his first goal was a thing of beauty.

"I would love to say that Liverpool came and were just too clever and sat in a great spot", he said on ESPN FC. That's something which has impressed Bild and shows in the German newspaper's player ratings, although not every Reds player got a good mark.

On that occasion, Chelsea beat Liverpool to reach the last four, before losing to eventual winners Barcelona in the semis, while Manchester United and Arsenal emerged from their quarterfinals to meet in the last four, with United prevailing before losing to Barca in the final.
