Kelly grew up in Newcastle and supported the Magpies but said he always knew he was in the wrong city and moved to Merseyside 10 years ago.
Wave upon wave of further attacks during the first half proved fruitless, however, and the City boss confronted his countryman Lahoz on the field at the break over Leroy Sane having a goal ruled out for offside.
Graeme Souness (1980-81), Terry McDermott (1980-81), Gerrard (2007-08), Peter Crouch (2006-07) and Fernando Torres (2007-08), meanwhile, all managed six European goals in a single season for the five-time champions.

With the title still to be wrapped up, Guardiola called on his players to make one last push at the end of what had been a fabulous campaign until the last seven days.
After they allowed West Ham a point at Stamford Bridge last Sunday, the Blues travel to fellow relegation strugglers Southampton this weekend in a dress rehearsal for next week's FA Cup semifinal.
"It was quite difficult tonight, again especially with the start".
"City took all the risks they could take, we needed a bit of luck and a disciplined defending formation".
