Two goals apiece from Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino and efforts from Philippe Coutinho, a first club strike from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Trent Alexander-Arnold completed the Reds' best away win in Europe. "It will give the players a lot of confidence," he said.
"I was told about the record and I didn't know about it. The history of this club can feel like a back-pack at times so it is nice to write our own good piece of the history. It will be difficult to beat that record. It is quite rare to win 7-0 but we did unbelievably well."
