Liverpool finally clicked in front of goal on Tuesday evening, as Jurgen Klopp's side won 7-0 away to Maribor in the Champions League. The strike, which Klopp claimed would lift the midfielder's confidence and "open his chest", followed an impressive substitute's display against Manchester United on Saturday.
The first goal of the game came with the first chance for the Reds, Mohamed Salah intercepted a poor pass from Mitja Viler before driving towards the Maribor goal. He found Philippe Coutinho, who half-volleyed to the keeper's right, evading the grasp of Maribor's Jasmin Handanovic, making it 2-0 inside 15 minutes. It was nice from Daniel how he made this goal, really cool.

Firmino got on the end of a Coutinho free-kick to head a fifth goal.
Captain for the night Milner played in place of Jordan Henderson and marshalled the Reds from start to finish, determined not to let standards slip as the game entered somewhat of a lull.
