Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain says the inspiration from the fans, helped spur them to the 3-0 win over City.
In front of a loud home fan at Anfield, Liverpool took control of the UCL quarterfinal against league rivals, scoring all goals in the first half.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has hailed the supporters and says they were key to their win.
“It was a great start for us – going 3-0 up before half-time set us up brilliantly,” the England international told BT Sport.
“We knew we had to start fast, but I don’t think that was hard today with the atmosphere. From coming into the ground right through the warm-up, the fans were unbelievable out there.
“It got me going and I’m sure it got the rest of the boys going. We’ve won the game in the first half and then had to defend well in the second.”
“It was a good strike. The space just opened up for me,” he added. “I’ve been working on that, on trying to do it more often. I showed myself that if it’s on more often I can keep doing it.”
