In a group of European heavyweights only Liverpool, ultimately, lived up to the billing. Jürgen Klopp’s makeshift team made light work of Milan, just as more recognisable lineups had of Atlético Madrid and Porto, as Liverpool became the first English team to win all six games in a Champions League group.
Mohamed Salah added to his extensive collection of milestones by registering his 20th goal of the season as Liverpool came from behind to beat the Italian giants with something to spare. So much to spare, in fact, that Klopp gave the 18-year-old academy graduates Conor Bradley and Max Woltman late cameos to cherish at San Siro.
