Liverpool took a giant step towards qualifying for the quarter-finals of the Europa League on Thursday night with a 2-0 victory over Manchester United and it did not take long for some of the Merseyside side's players to acknowledge the supporters.
The result has left Liverpool in a commanding position ahead of next week's second leg at Old Trafford, but while the players were understandably jubilant about their win, they were quick to thanks the fans who attended the game at Anfield.
Liverpool have been lacking a memorable European night at Anfield, but the atmosphere inside their home ground was electric as they gained bragging rights over their fierce rivals.
