All the stats as Liverpool overcome an early Manchester City goal to book their place in the final four of the 2017/18 Champions League, winning 2-1 on the night at the Etihad Stadium…

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, both of whom were on the scoresheet, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Andrew Robertson all returned to the starting X1 after being rested for the goalless draw against Everton on Saturday.

The victory, coupled with a 3-0 win at Anfield last week, secured a 5-1 aggregate success as Kop boss Jürgen Klopp maintained his hoodoo over Pep Guardiola.

The German has now defeated his opposite number seven times and, by also winning their home Premier League meeting in January, Liverpool have become the first team to beat a side managed by Guardiola three times in a single season.

The Merseysiders have now scored 33 goals in the Champions League this season – the most by an English side in a single campaign ever.

They will find out their semi-final opponent on Friday.
