Liverpool’s season was one to remember, a relentless and joyous experience as Jurgen Klopp’s men lifted two trophies and kept a shot at history alive until the final day.

The 2021/22 season was exhausting for completely different reasons to that of 2020/21, with a 63-game campaign taking us all on an emotional rollercoaster from start to finish.

Klopp’s men delivered moments and memories to cherish and while it did not end with another piece of silverware alongside the League Cup and FA Cup, nothing can be taken away from this group of players.

Here, we take a look at our favorite photos from the remarkable season gone by – from goal celebrations, trophy lifts and 500,000 Reds at the parade.

Salah and the Kop

Mohamed Salah is not shy in whipping off his shirt for a goal celebration, and we did not have to wait long in 2021/22 to see it – the Kop got a good show!

Although against Crystal Palace it was premature as Salah had thought he’d broken Didier Drogba’s Premier League record as the highest African goalscorer, a slight miscalculation on his part.

But the former Chelsea man’s record of 104 was soon broken at Old Trafford…

Thiago’s wonder strike

Voted as the Champions League Goal of the Tournament, there was no way Thiago’s celebration against Porto could be passed up after that stunning goal.

The Spaniard called it “a special goal” but the list of superlatives is endless for the strike, it hit the back of the net like a rocket and have we decided if it skimmed the grass?

Red mist over Goodison

Cometh the hour, cometh the man, cometh the Divock Origi.

Liverpool needed a late winner and Klopp looked no further than the No. 27, who duly delivered to add yet another moment to his legend.

Not one, not two, three or four, but five-nil – it was a day to remember back in October as Liverpool served up a thumping for Man United.

Naby Keita, Diogo Jota and a hat-trick for Salah sealed the emphatic win, while Ibrahima Konate made his presence felt in more ways than one – one of the greatest away days under Klopp.

Klopp’s passion

We definitely weren’t deprived of Klopp’s fist pumps this season, whether that be in Europe, on the road in England or at Anfield.

Always burning with emotion and sometimes with some trickery making us think they weren’t going to happen before dipping his shoulder and running back, we just couldn’t get enough.

This particular image came after the narrow 1-0 win over West Ham, Klopp’s reaction spoke volumes.

After five months on the sidelines with a nasty ankle injury, Harvey Elliott returned in style by scoring his first goal for the club at the Kop end against Cardiff in the FA Cup.

This one may not be in high definition, but it’s an image that can not be overlooked when discussing the best of the season.

Anfield sent Liverpool to Villarreal with a 2-0 advantage in the Champions League semi-finals and while they would make a hard go of it in Spain, the home leg was one to savor.

Jordan Henderson triggered the opener before Sadio Mane added a welcome buffer, and it’s clear to see the importance was not lost on the players at the time.
