Watch: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Scores A Rocket Against Manchester City

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, take a bow son.

Liverpool went 1-0 up through who else but Mo Salah in the Champions League quarter final first leg at Anfield, seizing on some slack defending and slamming home his 38th goal of the season 12 minutes in

City had actually started reasonably well but were rocked by the opener. Then eight minutes later, Oxlade-Chamberlain added a second with an absolute thunderbastard. James Milner regained possession and when the ball fell to the Liverpool No.21 outside the box, he let rip and produced a net-bulging strike.

The England international scored a tidy opener in the 4-3 league win at Anfield but his strike tonight was different gravy. You just don't save them.

Social media exploded with reaction to the stunning goal. Here's a selection:

The Reds added a third on the half-way mark, Sadio Mane heading home a Salah cross as the hosts blew City away.
