Liverpool fans could be forgiven for thinking it couldn’t get any better than beating rivals 7-0 at Anfield but ’s just tested the limits of that.
The Reds got their top four hopes back on track with a sensational win against their biggest rivals on Sunday afternoon.
The defeat was United’s biggest in Premier League history and while that in itself brings joy for Liverpool fans, the nature of the display will be even more pleasing as ’s men looked like the team of years gone by.
Performances like that have been lacking this season, in which Klopp and his players have all admitted they’ve fallen below the standards set in recent years.
But a result like that is one worth celebrating, no matter how the current campaign is playing out.
One man that did exactly that was Trent Alexander-Arnold, who posted a selfie of himself with the ‘This is Anfield’ sign and a follow-up picture of the scoreboard from the 90th minute that depicted the 7-0 scoreline.
The post, as you may expect, brought in nearly 700,000 ‘likes’ within the first hour from giddy supporters.
But it was a ‘like’ from Dortmund superstar Bellingham that really caught the eye.
The England midfielder is a priority target for Liverpool and part of the reason that the Reds are so desperate to finish in the top four is that a failure to do so could see them miss out on Bellingham.
But the Englishman was clearly happy with what he saw at Anfield on Sunday, as he took to Instagram to endorse Alexander-Arnold’s post.
The midfielder is expected to leave Dortmund this summer, with Manchester City and Real Madrid the main competitors for Bellingham’s signature.
But with his recent activity it would look like the Reds are in the lead.
