Manchester - Liverpool produced their best performance since the arrival of new manager Jurgen Klopp to beat Premier League title chasers Manchester City 4-1 on Saturday.
A stunning first-half display of high pressing and counterattacking saw Klopp's side surge into a three-goal lead at the Etihad Stadium.
It was the first time since February 2003 that City had conceded three before the interval in a league fixture.
"It was very, very good. We took our chances and made brilliant goals in the counterattack," Klopp said.
"With results like this the boys will start to believe in themselves and that's very important," Klopp added following a result that moves his side to within six points of a Champions League berth.
First-half goals from Brazilian duo Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino stunned the hosts which had fallen behind after Eliaquim Mangala put through his own net.
Firmino enjoyed his best performance in a red shirt since joining the club from German side Hoffenheim for a reported fee of £29 million. And he was flanked by compatriot Coutinho, who continues to thrive under Klopp. The pair were involved in all three goals as Liverpool established a firm hold on the game.
