They ensured that AC Milan finished last in the group by staging  a comeback for a 2-1 victory.

It was a win that ensured that Liverpool became the first club in England to win all of their six champions league group stage games, amassing 18 out of a total 18.

Jurgen Klopp decided to keep Mohammed Salah among the starting XI and the Egyptian lived up to expectations and showed why he is currently the best player in the world.

Couple of weeks ago, Klopp labelled him as the best in the world saying:

“His performance was massive today. The pass for the first goal was great and the second goal was special. He is top. We all see it. Who is better than him? We don’t have to talk about what Messi and Ronaldo have done for world football and their dominance. But right now, he is the best.”
