For two fans however, this delight soon led to despair as they were left stranded after a taxi driver took them to the wrong station.
This meant that the sixth form student and his 10-year-old nephew missed the last train back to London. The Liverpool Echo reports how the £54.20 cost meant the pair had no other way of getting home and had to walk all the way back from the airport to the city centre.
Not knowing what else to do, the Leicester fan who calls himself 'LCFCRyan' decided to share his problem on Liverpool page 'reddit'. Although hopeful of receiving some help, it is doubtful that Ryan could have imagined what was about to happen.
In no time at all, a user on the page known as 'OfficePlum' responded with: "Wait near the main entrance to Lime Street (the entrance facing the big TV screen) and I'll give you the money for a hotel room and a taxi so you can get there safely. I'll be there in about 15 minutes."
Ryan was quick to thank this warm gesture but what followed was pretty special.
The generous Liverpool fan was quoted as saying that the gesture was the least he could have done as it is taxi drivers like that who give the city a bad name.
The next day, Ryan again thanked his saviour and the story attracted much interest from other fans, many leaving well-wishes on the fan page, one writing: "It worked out well in the end didn't it? With such good people, they'll never walk alone to London." Even Reds supporters from as far as New York and Sydney offered to buy OfficePlum dinner if he was ever in their neck of the woods.
The 10-year-old's mother showed her gratitude by donating twice the amount of the cost of the hotel to a homeless charity in Liverpool while Ryan's parents made a contribution to the Hillsborough campaigners.
After a game in which there was no winner, it seems like everyone else was.
Top Corner is sure that Liverpool fans will hoping Steven Gerrard can't find his way out of the city come May!
