PHOTOS: The best moments of Liverpool's 2014; Gerrard, Coutinho, Lallana & more

Martin Skrtel

2014 was a year both to remember and forget for Liverpool fans. Here are the moments to remember for the right reasons...

Liverpool 5-1 Arsenal

One of the most memorable Liverpool victories in recent years came at Anfield earlier this year, when the Reds thrashed Arsenal 5-1 on Merseyside.

The quickest of starts from Brendan Rodgers' side packed a punch that Arsene Wenger's men simply couldn't recover from - and Martin Skrtel's celebrations painted quite a picture that unforgettable day.

Manchester United 0-3 Liverpool

As the Reds continued to score the goals and rack up the points during the second half of the 2013/14 season, a visit to Old Trafford beckoned for Rodgers and his squad.

Light work was made, however, of David Moyes' struggling side, as Luis Suarez and co ran United ragged. Steven Gerrard scored two penalties for Liverpool that day, showing his delight to the watching world.

Liverpool 3-2 Manchester City

The final stages of the league season approached in April, with Liverpool in with a serious chance of lifting their first ever Premier League trophy. Manchester City awaited them at Anfield, though, and they wouldn't make things easy for the Reds.

Liverpool took another early lead but Manuel Pellegrini's men later pegged them back to 2-2. Cue a late, dramatic winner from Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho.

Liverpool 4-1 Swansea City

After the infamous conclusion to their ultimately unsuccessful title charge, months of sorrow followed for Liverpool fans. Rodgers' side never quite got near the bottom of the top flight but they certainly hovered around the bottom half, while they fell at the first hurdle in the Champions League.

But the Reds' best moment of the current season was their most recent: a 4-1 win over Swansea City which suggested there could be hope that Liverpool may return to their former strengths in 2015.

There is still a long, long way to go for Rodgers and his charges but the performance of his side - and Adam Lallana, in particular - was a real sign of encouragement against Garry Monk's Swans.
