Liverpool have been struggling in the Premier League lately but there were no signs of a crisis of confidence in the Champions League last night.

The Reds took a huge step towards qualification for the last eight of the competition with a 2-0 win over RB Leipzig.

The game was moved to Budapest because of the pandemic – meaning the ‘hosts’ lost their home advantage – and Liverpool made that count.

NBA superstar LeBron James is one of the most high-profile Liverpool fans out there and posted a three-word Twitter message after the win.

Liverpool will hope that last night’s win can give them a much-needed shot in the arm.


The games are coming thick and fast and they don’t get any easier with a Merseyside derby to come this weekend.

Leipzig’s high-energy style should have been perfect to take advantage of Liverpool’s makeshift backline.

But they showed their resilience on an important night and James clearly enjoyed the performance.
