Liverpool‘s dreams of securing an unprecedented quadruple remain alive and well after a thrilling victory over Manchester City at Wembley in the FA Cup.
Liverpool blew their rivals away with a scintillating first-half performance that saw them grab three goals in an overwhelming display of intensity and style.
Sadio Mane bagged a double after Ibrahima Konate opened the scoring with a towering header in the early exchanges.
It was one of the finest first-half displays you could ever hope to see with the Reds going into the break in absolute dreamland.
Of course, City would show their class in the second half as they ran Liverpool close but, ultimately, the demolition in the opening 45 proved to be enough to get Jurgen Klopp’s side over the line.
Footage of the atmosphere inside the iconic stadium has been doing the rounds on social media all day with clips following the second goal showing the Kopites in especially fine voice.
Singing their famous European anthem ‘Allez Allez Allez’, the Liverpool fans lit up their half of Wembley to create a truly special atmosphere.

Unbelievable – they were only halfway through the first stanza but the thunderous noise was simply deafening.
You’d be hard pressed to think of a better time to be a Liverpool fan than now and it’s safe to say those fans are making the absolute most of every single second.
They next welcome Manchester United to Anfield where you can be sure a similarly euphoric atmosphere awaits.
It could prove to be a crucial game in the Premier League title race as City cling on to a slender advantage with just seven games to be played.
If Liverpool turn up the way they did on Saturday, it could prove to be a long old night for their bitter rivals
