We’ve had The Egyptian King song, and now Liverpool fans have a new chant that celebrates the feel-good factor around the Reds this season.
Saturday may have seen a 2-1 defeat for Liverpool, but you’d never have known it from the travelling Reds at Old Trafford
Sky Sports’ footage at full time panned to fans celebrating their team – but those supporters were in Old Trafford’s away end.

It’s been nine years since the Reds were in a Champions League quarter-final, and with Friday’s draw on the horizon, it’s a sign of the huge progress being made.
Supporters are enjoying watching their team again and there’s a feeling that the good times are returning – songs and scenes like this were commonplace under Rafa Benitez’s best years a decade ago.
The new Allez, Allez, Allez song started in the pubs around Anfield in recent weeks and had its first airing on the Kop against Porto last week. It’s a tune you can’t get out your head.
Let’s hope for a big European opponent in Friday’s draw.
We’ve conquered all of Europe
We’re never gonna stop
From Paris down to…
