Liverpool opinion: 25 photos that capture some of the best moments from Liverpool’s incredible season

Liverpool ended a spectacular season in spectacular fashion by winning the Champions League for the sixth time. The Reds defeated Tottenham to lift the crown and it erased some of the disappointment of finishing second in the Premier League.

Liverpool collected a record 97 points in the Premier League but Manchester City pipped us by one point at the end of the campaign.

Nevertheless, it was an excellent season under Jurgen Klopp that featured several highs and a very few lows. The first great moment of the season was when we faced Tottenham away from home.

Gini Wijnaldum Liverpool

Spurs had that 4-1 hammering to talk about previously but Georginio Wijnaldum scored an excellent header before Roberto Firmino made the points safe with a late goal.

The tough fixtures kept on coming for Liverpool but we kept our unbeaten run going against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Daniel Sturridge slammed home an incredible goal in the dying seconds as we tried to keep the pressure on Manchester City.

Our Champions League campaign also started with some drama as Roberto Firmino scored in the final seconds and brought out his ‘no-look’ celebration.

PSG scored twice at Anfield but we edged it, thanks to the Brazilian.

Manchester City took us on in the Premier League after that and the game was a cagey affair until Virgil van Dijk gave away a penalty.

Riyad Mahrez decided to take the spot-kick but blasted over as the game finished 0-0 and we remained unbeaten.

One of the success stories from this season was Trent Alexander-Arnold. The Englishman provided several assists in the league and even whipped in a free-kick against Watford.

Merseyside madness

The Merseyside derby at Anfield will be remembered for several reasons. Alisson first came up with an incredible point-blank save to deny Andre Gomes in the first half.

The Brazilian was excellent throughout the campaign but the moment of the game belonged to Divock Origi.

The Belgian, who was barely preferred in the season, came on and scored a freak goal in the 96th minute as Jordan Pickford made a mess of a Van Dijk cross/shot.

Cue wild celebrations all around and even Jurgen Klopp got into the act as he ran onto the pitch.

The Reds were a well-oiled machine now and our trip to Bournemouth was another tough test.

Mohamed Salah scored a hat-trick in the game, and his celebration after the third goal showed his confidence and also told the story of him not being fazed even though the Cherries were kicking him throughout.

Champions League drama

The Reds needed to defeat Napoli at home in the final group game, and we got a great start thanks to Mohamed Salah’s excellent effort.

However, Alisson came up big again for us as he denied Napoli a sure goal late on and ensured we made it into the knockout rounds.

Xherdan Shaqiri was another summer signing for the Reds, but he didn’t get a lot of starts in the season.

The Swiss did have a huge role to play against Manchester United as he scored two goals in the 3-1 win vs the Red Devils.

Firmino had another huge game against Arsenal later in the season as he scored a hat-trick too. The Brazilian again had a great moment with a no-look goal as the Gunners’ defence was at sixes and sevens.

Bayern come calling

Van Dijk scored the third goal in the 3-1 win over Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena, as we were the better side in the Champions League round of 16.

Liverpool’s tough games kept on coming while Salah was on a bit of a dry spell. The Egyptian didn’t score but he created the winner against Tottenham as they were beaten by an own goal.

The next game was against Southampton where Salah scored and celebrated by taking his shirt off.

The goal came late in the game before Jordan Henderson scored another one and celebrated wildly as we kept the pressure on Manchester City.

Naby Keita also played a key role in the win over the Saints, and he continued his scoring record by finding the back of the net against Porto.

Salah was bang in form and scored a thunderbolt against Chelsea to ensure the Premier League season was going down to the wire.

Barca put to the sword

Barcelona came to Anfield for the second leg of the Champions League semi-final but were dealt an incredible 4-0 loss by the Reds.

Liverpool were magnificent from the start as braces from Divock Origi and Wijnaldum knocked the Catalans out of the Champions League.

Trent Alexander-Arnold spotted Origi for the winner with some quick thinking, and that has to be one of the best moments from the season.

The final

Liverpool played the Champions League final after missing out on the Premier League title.

Salah was playing in the final after leaving the previous one due to a shoulder injury, and he scored within two minutes as Sadio Mane won us a penalty.

Divock Origi made the game safe with a late goal and it was great to see Henderson finally lift a trophy with the Reds.
