UEFA.com reporter's view

The Reds have left their challengers for dust, storming to the Group B summit without dropping a point. It's not been plain sailing, though, as they have had to show some mettle to battle back against top-quality opposition in AC Milan and Atlético.

What we've learned

This Liverpool side rarely go about things quietly – it's been another raucous campaign so far, with Salah to the fore as usual, though Diogo Jota looks increasingly at home in this competition. Goals from midfield will have pleased Klopp, but there are creases to iron out defensively.

Squad changes

Clubs can register a maximum of three new eligible players by 24:00 CET on Wednesday 2 February at the latest. Since 2018/19, it no longer matters whether those players have already played in the competition for another club, even for another club still in the competition. Once all teams' changes are approved by UEFA in each competition, the full list of ins and outs will be published on UEFA.com.

Key stats

Liverpool were one of three clubs to complete a perfect group stage campaign, a feat achieved only seven times in competition history prior to this season.

• Salah scored in a club record ten successive games during the autumn.

• The Reds set an English football record by scoring two or more goals in 18 consecutive games, between 12 September and 1 December.
