The Reds took a big step towards booking their place in the semi-finals of Europe’s elite club competition by wrapping up a solid 3-0 victory over the Citizens at Anfield.
Goals from Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane wrapped up a dominant win for Jurgen Klopp’s men ahead of the return leg on Tuesday night.
The result means that City will have to score five goals to progress if Liverpool FC manage to net an away goal at The Etihad.
However, former striker Bellamy believes that Manchester City are inevitably going to step their game up against the Reds at The Etihad in the return leg next week.
Speaking on The Debate on Sky Sports on Wednesday night, Bellamy said: “Liverpool have done brilliantly and at 3-0 against most teams you’d be through.
“However, with the quality Man City have there’s still a little bit of work to be done.”
He continued: “Because of the way City have played this season and the impact they’ve had on the Premier League, the Liverpool supporters, and the Liverpool players as well, wouldn’t want to believe they are through.
“There’s going to be a backlash from this team. This team is that good they can put goals past you.”
Liverpool FC will first turn their attentions back towards Premier League affairs and their trip to Everton in the top flight on Saturday lunchtime.
The Reds are currently in third place in the Premier League table as they seek Champions League qualification for the second season running under Klopp.
