Following Liverpool’s 1-0 win against Leicester on Boxing Day, we bring you the best social media reaction from during and after the game.

This was a massive victory for Jurgen Klopp‘s side, as the Reds narrowly defeated the league leaders in front of an atmospheric Anfield.

Christian Benteke, who often frustrated having replaced the injured Divock Origi, proved to be the match-winner, with the Belgian finishing well after 63 minutes.

The win reignites Liverpool’s top-four aspirations, especially as Man United lost 2-0 at Stoke City earlier in the day, and their performance was one of the best at home under Klopp.

Here is how social media saw the match:

Most supporters seemed pleased when Liverpool’s starting eleven was announced before kick-off:

Origi’s first-half injury was a blow to the Reds, and his replacement Benteke got on the nerves of many from the outset:

It was an entertaining first-half on Merseyside though, with the Reds dominating much of the game and creating a number of clear-cut chances:

Klopp’s men clung onto victory, following a tense finale, and relief among supporters was there for all to see. Benteke’s late sitter also received a few mentions:

Good game, good win. Klopp said he’d stop teams beating with long ball and so far so good.
