In Liverpool News, Jurgen Klopp admitted the 7-1 thrashing of Rangers in the Champions League has "changed the mood" at Liverpool ahead of facing Manchester City.

Mohamed Salah scored the fastest-ever Champions League hat-trick as Liverpool turned it on in the second half to thrash Rangers. Liverpool's spectacular second half, where they scored six goals, meant it was Rangers' heaviest-ever defeat in a competitive match at Ibrox.

This was a timely boost for Klopp's men, who face Manchester City on Sunday, live on Sky Sports.

"It changed the mood definitely," Klopp said.

"It's completely different. We usually drink a beer after away games but it's that long ago I drunk a beer I'll probably be drunk after one. Yes it changed the mood completely but we all know who we are welcoming on Sunday and this will be a different game, but it's better to go into it with this feeling we've got tonight than any other."

Two Roberto Firmino goals sent Liverpool on their way and his clever flick allowed Darwin Nunez to net his second goal in as many games. Substitute Salah, who came on in the 68th minute, then took over, scoring the first of his three goals on 75 minutes and securing the match ball with two more ruthless finishes against the hapless Rangers defence.

When asked about Salah's hat-trick, Klopp said: "Special. Typical Mo. Very important, the whole thing, how the boys adapted to it, to the positions, to the line-up, the reaction of the boys on the pitch, I thought everybody who started tonight played really well. I can't think of one player who didn't have a good game, the two kids right and left wing really good, Fabio and Harvey , and when you can change like we did tonight and the boys come on ready to contribute then things like this can happen.

"A freak result, we all know that, and we don't make more of it than we should, but obviously it's the best we could have asked for and I'm pretty pleased.

I'm always ready for a change in the right direction. We'll see. We don't have to make a big thing of it but the best football team in the world right now is waiting on Sunday and coming to Anfield. We'll see what we can do. It was for us - for different reasons - incredibly important. Now we have to recover."
