At the start of last season, the Merseyside club were behind their hated neighbours with 44 major honours. However, winning the Champions League in Madrid and the Super Cup in Istanbul ensured that Jurgen Klopp’s side went back to the top of the list as England’s most successful team.
Supporters were jubilant with the news and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan declared that the Merseysiders are “back on their perch”.
Here you will find some of the best comments from Liverpool fans:
Beautiful, just beautiful.
