James Milner completed 90 minutes in the crushing win over Porto – and Liverpool fans on Twitter were blown away by the performance of the midfielder.
Jurgen Klopp’s side produced a European masterclass as they beat Porto away 5-0 in the first leg of a last 16 Champions League tie.
Sadio Mane stole the headlines with his stunning hat-trick, while attacking teammates Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino also got on the scoresheet.
The Merseyside club now have one foot in the quarter-finals, but will still face Portuguese top-flight leaders Porto at Anfield in the return leg.
Liverpool fans on social media were full of praise for central midfielder Milner as he produced a dominant display away from home.
The 32-year-old has not been a guaranteed starter this campaign, but Klopp opted for his experience away to Porto and he has still been a vital part of their squad.
He lined up alongside Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum in the midfield, who totally bossed the game with their high work-rate and pressure.
Milner finished the game with the captain’s armband and will be hoping to continue playing a vital role as Liverpool pursue European glory this season.
