NK Maribor 0 - 7 Liverpool (Oct-17-2017) Champions League Hughlights

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said it was "nice to write a piece of history" as the Reds thrashed Slovenian side Maribor to record the biggest away win by an English team in the history of the European Cup.

The Reds dominated throughout to go top of Champions League Group E with a scintillating performance.

Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah both scored twice, with Philippe Coutinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Trent Alexander-Arnold also on target.

The win eclipses 6-0 away victories by Leeds United over Norwegians Lyn in October 1969, and Manchester United against Irish outfit Shamrock Rovers in September 1957.

"I was told about the record after the game and I didn't know," said Klopp.

"The wonderful history of this club can feel like a backpack 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 it showed we did unbelievably well."
