Michael Essien sent a classy message to Liverpool after their breath-taking 4-3 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League on Thursday night.

The Reds appeared to be heading out of the competitions after Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored inside the opening nine minutes of the second leg of the Europa League quarter-final.

Belgium international Divock Origi offered Liverpool some hope at the start of the second half before Marco Reus restored Dortmund’s two-goal cushion to leave Liverpool on the brink of an exit.

However, Philippe Coutinho, Mamadou Sakho and Dejan Lovren scored in the final 24 minutes at Anfield to secure a memorable 5-4 aggregate victory over Dortmund and book their place in the last four.

While former Chelsea defender Cundy was critical of Liverpool on talkSPORT, Blues legend Essien took a more classy approach on Twitter with a kind message for his former rivals after a memorable European night.
