Arsenal arrived at Anfield in February sitting pretty at the top of the Barclays Premier League table and a win for the Gunners would have surely ended any hopes that Liverpool had of winning the title.
Arsene Wenger, however, could not have foreseen in even his worst of nightmares just what the Reds had in store for his men this particular Saturday lunchtime.
Liverpool were quick out of the blocks and were 4-0 up inside a quite phenomenal 20 minutes of football.
Martin Skrtel enjoyed arguably his most memorable 10 minutes in a Liverpool shirt as he scored not one, but two goals to put the Reds 2-0 up after only 11 minutes of play.
Brendan Rodgers' side were outsmarting their counterparts at their own game, slick pass and move football from the Reds had the home fans purring and it wasn't long before they added to their two-goal lead.
Raheem Sterling, who has found the kind of form that should see him star for England at this summer's World Cup, tapped in a Luis Suarez cross that found the youngster on hand at the back post.
Daniel Sturridge added a fourth with a finish not too dissimilar from his first goal in the 4-0 drubbing of Everton, latching on to an inch-perfect Philippe Coutinho pass before leaving Wojciech Szczesny for dead.
The Reds took only seven minutes of the second half to add to their already impressive lead over the league leaders when Raheem Sterling added his second and Liverpool's fifth at the second time of asking.
A Mikel Arteta's consolation penalty did nothing to dampen the spirits and celebrations around Anfield as the Reds ran out 5-1 victors.
The only thing missing from the afternoon was a Luis Suarez goal but the majestic Uruguayan was unplayable throughout, despite failing to get on the scoresheet.
This performance ranks at No. 1 on the list as Arsenal travelled to Anfield in confident mood and as league leaders, yet they were made to look ordinary by a quite breathtaking Liverpool performance.
It was arguably the moment many Liverpool fans realised what Brendan Rodgers is doing at Anfield is something special and believed their side could go on and win the league. The performance, dare I say it, had the hall mark of champions.
