It was good to have them back, it was good to give them a 4-0 win and a good performance," the club's official website quoted Wijnaldum as saying.
"They were really supportive of us and that's also something that we need. Everyone knows that the fans and the crowd in Anfield is really vital for the team and can give the team an extra boost and that's what they did today. I think it was 2,000 fans but the noise they made was unbelievable for 2,000 people. So it was a good day," he added.
