Anfield has witnessed many memorable European nights over the years and this will take its place among the most spectacular as a simply devastating, first-half display was crowned with goals from Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane.
Pep Guardiola insists he has not changed his selection plans for Saturday's Manchester derby in the wake of City's 3-0 defeat at Liverpool in midweek, Soccerway reports. Always the first time you suffer, the next time he'll be better.
"It's the stuff dreams are made of; you dream of it as a kid growing up wanting to play in these types of games", he said.
"We know that playing here is hard".
"We wanted more passes, more control", Guardiola said.
"It gives you an extra boost - especially in the second half when we were defending a lot, to keep going".
While the margin of victory was emphatic, Klopp said he had been in the game too long to think the contest was over.
Now instead of a morale-boosting celebration, Pep Guardiola's side have been forced to wait to clinch their third title in seven seasons and can not be guaranteed the title even if they win at Tottenham Hotspur next Saturday. Until 2-0, we were there.
They're additionally liable to make sure their supporters behave appropriately no matter any negligence in relation to the organisation of the match. "I am not such a bad manager as some people think I am, the players are not so bad as people think they are".
City's dominance has been so overwhelming that many are already ranking them among the best teams in Premier League history, alongside the likes of Arsenal's "Invincibles", who won the 2003-04 title without losing a single match, and United's 1999 treble winners.
"We have 90 minutes, all of us (in the competition), Sevilla, Juventus and us". The weather is very complicated, but from the beginning of the game we knew that they would be pressing strongly.
Guardiola will leave it late to decide on the potential inclusion of top scorer Sergio Aguero, who last featured in the 1-0 win over Chelsea on March 4 and has been stepping up his recovery from a knee problem. "Now it is tough", he added.
"Nobody believes we will go through".
"We want a great atmosphere and we want to make it hostile for the opposition but certain individuals have overstepped the line and it's bang out of order", he said on BT Sport.
Guardiola's decision to change his approach and play an extra central midfielder, Ilkay Gundogan, instead of winger Raheem Sterling was based on his belief that it would allow City to take charge of midfield.
