Souness: I've never heard anything like Anfield on Sunday

According to Reds legend and former players/manager, Graeme Souness, the atmosphere and noise following our goals against Chelsea on Sunday was like nothing he'd ever heard from Anfield or LFC fans before.


Having been a Liverpool player for 6 seasons, playing over 300 games and winning countless trophies for the Reds, Souness should know a thing or two about atmospheres. Particularly as his Liverpool teams as manager pretty much killed it during the 90's!


We jest, of course, Souness - despite his faux pas and downsides through the years - has always been an 'us' type of ex-player so he knows that the fans currently feel something special is happening under Jurgen Klopp.


Speaking after the match on Sky Sports yesterday, he said: "Yes [ I can’t remember hearing a noise like it].


"When the second goal goes in, okay they are celebrating that second goal, but the feeling within the stadium, I can’t remember when I was playing here [anything like it].


"Maybe I’m doing a disservice to those supporters all those years ago... but the stadium is absolutely rocking."


When Sadio Mane opened the scoring early on in the 2nd half, the crowd were rocking and blew the roof off the place.


But when Mo Salah scored what is surely the goal of the season 2 minutes later the crowd sent the noise into the stratosphere.


If we're to win the title, we need that for our final 2 home games and the travelling fans to be at the best away to Cardiff and Newcastle but for now, we're right on track.
