MO Salah Scores again as Liverpool reach Champions League semi finals

Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino were familiar heroes as Liverpool reached the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in a decade with a 2-1 second-leg win at Manchester City that sealed a 5-1 aggregate victory.
Gabriel Jesus had stirred hopes of an improbable comeback when he struck inside two minutes to kick off a dominant first-half display in which Bernardo Silva hit the post and Leroy Sane saw a goal wrongly disallowed. But City’s performance failed to yield further reward on a night Pep Guardiola was sent to the stands.
Jurgen Klopp’s side, who stunned the Premier League champions-elect with a 3-0 win at a frenzied Anfield, knew an away goal would make City’s task tougher still, and after Salah delivered the demoralising punch (56), Firmino added further insult (77) as the hosts ran out of steam.
