Liverpool’s trip to Crystal Palace for Saturday’s lunchtime start looked like an intriguing clash on paper.
Jurgen Klopp’s side had not only achieved a league win away from home all season, but they were heading to the scene of one of their most disastrous away days in Premier League history following their collapse 3-3 in 2014.
So, a difficult afternoon for the champions? Yes, it worked well.
Klopp’s men went wild, looking back at their best as they scored seven goals and swept the Eagles with ease. But where does the win rank among the greatest Premier League away victories of all time?
You don’t need to search for the answer, we have the list for you right here.
The Reds have enjoyed some impressive days in the Northeast over the years, and 2008 was certainly a red day for Rafael Benítez’s men.
A Steven Gerrard double along with goals from Sami Hyypia, Ryan Babel and a penalty from Xabi Alonso ensured a comfortable away win for the title-chasing Merseysiders, with a David Edgar goal that added little of respect to the scoreboard for the local.
West Brom may have defied the odds of surviving the knockdown having been in last place on Christmas in 2004/05, but their attempts to crawl to the foot of the table couldn’t have started much worse.
Liverpool arrived at the Hawthorns on Boxing Day 2004 and delivered an unwanted late Christmas present, crushing Bryan Robson’s team 5-0 thanks to goals from Gerrard, Florent Sinama Pongolle, Luis Garcia and a double from John Arne Riise.
It may come as a surprise to some that Swindon Town used to be in the Premier League, but we promise you it really happened.
The Robins had a lonely season in the Premier League, and during that time they received more than their fair share of emphatic losses.
Graeme Souness’s team was left with complete winners at the County Grounds thanks to goals from Ronnie Whelan, Mike Marsh, a double for Steve McManaman and a first for Neil Ruddock’s club.
Liverpool were unstoppable at times in the 2013/14 season, and their trip to Tottenham in December 2013 was one of those days.
Luis Suárez put Brendan Rodgers’ team on his way before the Uruguayan added to his goal early at the end, with goals from Jordan Henderson, Raheem Sterling and even scouse Cafu, Jon Flanagan himself, scoring on a memorable day of absence for the club.
Oh Crystal Palace. Do you enjoy the Reds demolishing you?
The Eagles were at the end of another attack on Liverpool in 1994, with Steven McManaman and Ian Rush scoring two goals on their visit to Selhurst Park, with Jan Molby and Robbie Fowler securing a fantastic away win.
There was a consolation from Palace’s Chris Armstrong, but we are not here for the opposition goals.
It turns out that Aston Villa’s 7-2 win against Liverpool earlier this season was just revenge.
Jurgen Klopp’s team may not have been at their best during their early years at the club, but they still knew where the back of the net was, as demonstrated during their trip to Villa Park, where six different scorers they grabbed a piece of the net. action.
Daniel Sturridge, James Milner, Emre Can, Divock Origi, Nathaniel Clyne and KOLO TOURE were on the winning sheet for February 2016.
Still other trip to Newcastle.
Despite missing the suspended Luis Suarez, Liverpool showed no signs of losing their talisman, as Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson scored twice at St. James’ Park in April 2013, with Daniel Agger and Fabio Borini finishing the marker.
Remember when Michael Owen wasn’t injured?
The former England international used to be a really good footballer (honest) and scored four on the trip from Liverpool to The Hawthorns in 2003,
securing his 100th goal in the Premier League in the process.
Two goals from Milan Baros ended the scoring as Liverpool rampaged over the Baggies.
After Ipswich’s incredible first season in the Premier League in 2000/01, sadly the wheels fell off in the following campaign.
George Burley’s side was relegated in 2002 and their 6-0 loss to Liverpool in February was the start of a losing streak.
A double each for Owen and Emile Heskey along with goals from Hyypia and Abel Xavier rounded out a complete victory for Gerard Houllier’s men, with Ipswich winning just one league game for the remainder of the season …
Of course It is the greatest victory in its history.
Seven away goals and seven different assists, things like that don’t happen very often.
Klopp’s men were absolutely unstoppable at Selhurst Park, clinching the victory with goals from Takumi Minamino, Sadio Mane, Jordan Henderson and a double from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.
What an afternoon for the Reds.
