May started with the second leg of the semi-final as Roma tried to come back from the dead for the second time in the Champions League this season. But the Reds were not having any of it. They lead 2-1 at half-time thanks to Gini Wijnaldum's first away goal in forever. A late barrage from the Italian side wasn't enough, as Liverpool won 7-6 on aggregate and reached the Champions League final. Keep in mind, this was their second Champions League campaign since 2009.

The 4-2 defeat in the capital of Italy was followed with a 1-0 defeat in the capital of England. Chelsea beat Liverpool to draw level with them on the points table, as the Reds had won one game in five. Luckily, the Blues ended up shooting themselves in the foot with a defeat on the final day of the season against Newcastle. Liverpool rounded off a strong Premier League season with a 4-0 win against Brighton.

Mo Salah broke the record for the number of goals scored in a 38-game Premier League season as he scored his 32nd league goal, while Dominick Solanke and Andy Robertson both got their first goals for the club. All things considered, Liverpool had become a very solid force as they were the only team to be unbeaten at home in the 2017-18 Premier League season. Now it was off to Kiev.
