Following Liverpool's 4-0 aggregate win over RB Leipzig, as many as six Liverpool players star in the Champions League Fantasy Team of the Week.

It was deja-vu for the Reds as Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane both got on the scoresheet.

Salah rounded off a well-worked Liverpool break with the front three of Mane, Diogo Jota and the Egyptian combining to open the scoring.

Substitute Divock Origi found the Senegal international at the far post who poked home to put the game beyond doubt.

Overall, the performance was far from the clinical and ruthless Reds that dominated England and Europe over 18 months.

The win sent Jurgen Klopp's side into the last eight, with the draw in eight days time (March 19), it also comes a welcome sight for fans, players and club officials-alike as Sunday's defeat to Fulham saw their home form stretch to six straight defeats.

Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint Germain and FC Porto are in the hat for the next round with the next set of fixtures commencing in less than a week's time.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ozan Kabak, Nathanial Phillips, Fabinho, Salah and Mane made it into the squad, all scoring nine, eight, 10, nine, nine and eight respectively. 

The full-back, loanee defender and the two goal scorers appear in the team for the second time of the last 16 as Liverpool also dominated the first leg team of the week

Liverpool will be hoping to return to winning ways in the league as they travel to the midlands to face Wolves on Monday.
