The spine-tingling noise at Anfield spurred Liverpool on to victory. Divock Origi opened the scoring with Gini Wijnaldum bagging a quickfire brace in the second-half.
The Belgium forward then netted Liverpool's fourth which prompted wild scenes inside Anfield.
The 54,074-seater stadium is famed for its magical European nights and club legend Jamie Carragher believes Tuesday's fixture was the best.
"Greatest night ever at Anfield," he posted on social media following Liverpool's dramatic comeback.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was also full of praise for Anfield.
"We know this club is the mix of atmosphere, emotion, desire and football quality," he said.
"Cut off one and it doesn't work - we know that. I've said it before. If I have to describe this club then it's a big heart and tonight it was obviously like crazy, pounding like crazy.
"You could hear it and probably feel it all over the world. I'm so happy we could give the people this experience and I'm really happy about having another chance to get things right from our point of view."
Anfield hosts one more match before the end of the 2018/19 season. Liverpool entertain Wolves on Sunday in the final round of Premier League games.
