Liverpool raced to a shock 3-0 victory over Manchester City in their Champions League quarter-final first leg clash at Anfield on Wednesday night.
The Premier League leaders were stunned by three first-half strikes in an intimidating atmosphere after the City bus was damaged by fans before kick-off.
Goals from Mo Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mané inside thirty-one minutes were enough to sink the visitors, who failed to register a single shot on target.
These were the best jokes as Liverpool held on to their early lead to beat Man City 3-0 in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie:

Man City can still qualify for the Semi Finals.
Pep Guardiola just needs £500 Million to spend before the second leg.

Better than vandalising the bus, I guess.

The famous Anfield atmosphere did the trick for Liverpool tonight.
People who say City have no chance of recreating that hostile atmosphere clearly weren’t at the Etihad for Coldplay in ‘16 or Take That in ‘17

One of my worst nights in the 2 months that I've supported City. #PepOut
