Plenty of Liverpool fans have been fondly recalling one of the standout moments in the Reds’ remarkable Premier League season so far.

On Boxing Day, Jurgen Klopp’s team travelled to face a Leicester side then occupying second place in the league and destroyed them 4-0, a game which was brought up on Twitter this week by @empireofthekop.

The Foxes were Liverpool’s closest challengers at the time and the Reds had only just returned from the Club World Cup in Qatar. It bore the hallmarks of being a very stern test of the Merseysiders’ title credentials but they passed it in style with what has so far been their joint-biggest win of the season in all competitions.

Roberto Firmino’s header on the half-hour opened the scoring that night and Liverpool ruthlessly put their opponents to the sword in the space of seven second half minutes as James Milner, Firmino and Trent Alexander-Arnold netted to complete what BBC reporter Phil McNulty described as “a powerful statement victory”, one which put them 13 points clear at the summit.

These Liverpool fans on Twitter unsurprisingly had fond memories of the game, with one Kopite viewing it as a contender for “the best Liverpool performance I’ve ever seen“:
