To be fair to Rodgers, there was also some hint of that quality when they played Arsenal at the Emirates as well this season. But after defeat to West Ham their confidence utterly evaporated.

It should be said that City were appalling as well. Too often it seems that they are reliant on their admittedly phenomenal players - once Aguero went off for example, you could tell that Liverpool were probably going to get another goal or maybe even a couple more.

Having said that, I'm sure that City will recover - it struck me as a game where one team were set up so badly from the outset, that once they woke up they were 3-0 down and the game was essentially beyond them. A much fitter Aguero I'm sure would have caused a lot more problems for Liverpool.

They're too reliant on Silva, Kompany and Aguero and as the last two are fairly injury prone, I think this could bite them this season.

The amount of money they've spent and yet they still go into a game with Fernando shielding a centre-back pair of Mangala and Demichelis. Most teams in the Premiership would fancy their chances of a few goals up against that.
Liverpool looked better than I've seen them in a long time, though. The manic pressing just crushed City.

League cup semi-final, second leg.

What an inept performance by Liverpool, even if Stoke's goal was a mile offside.

So many of these players need to go: the summer transfer window can't come soon enough for me.

Well, a win's a win, a cup final's a cup final, but Liverpool can't take any real satisfaction from this.

But it was an offside goal, so undeserved though it was, justice has been done.

Legendary night at Anfield.

No-one really does European football like Liverpool do they?

Liverpool's defence was abject last night, but then Lovren and Sakho got the winners! A bizarre game in many respects.

No change there then. It's been like that pretty much all season.

which tells you all you need to know about Dortmund's defence which fell to pieces.

It was a rather interesting game, yes.

Even as an Everton fan, it would be churlish to decry an outstanding comeback from Liverpool.

Klopp will spend the summer restructuring that defence I'm sure. We'll have more of a idea how Liverpool look at the end of next season, I think.

And that was the game he dreamed of last night too - "Heavy metal" English football, 4-3, no notion of defending, full throttle to the wire.

It is quite clear that he is a coach of rare talent in his ability to inspire his players. I love his candour as well; he is extremely charming and the interviews he give allow a little insight into how that might rub off on his playing squad.

I also thought Divock Origi was outstanding - he is beginning to blossom into quite a player.

And they've got Villareal in the semis. Not an easy match at all but you'd have to fancy them to reach the final.

Given the parlous state of the club when he took over, he's done quite well so far.

He's got a lot of work to do but they're on the right track. if they win it and get a champions league place it will of course help with summer signings.

Couldn't watch the game last night as our holiday home didn't have satellite tv, watched the last ten minutes on BBC sport page updates. Reminded me of one of the best games I was at, Celtic vs Juventus in a Champions League group match, Juve were already through and we needed to win and hope that Rosenburg could beat Porto. After going a goal down Celtic ended up winning 4-3. Porto won their game and qualified, Celtic won all their home games to get 9 points, which in most of the other groups would've been enough to qualify. What a great game. Wish I could've seen last nights.
