A solitary strike from Jordon Ibe ensured Li verpool take a 1-0 first leg lead back to Anfield for the return fixture in two weeks time.

It was a great finish to cap off an excellent and disciplined performance from Jurgen Klopp’s side, who showed the fight and resilience called for after some really disappointing displays.

Here is how social media reacted to the game:

Pre-match optimism was in short supply following the confirmation of a far from full strength Liverpool XI for the Britannia clash, but there was joy over Christian Benteke being dropped:

On the forum, Billy Stevo’s Left Boot said: “Unless the version of Coutinho/Firmino that played so well against City and Chelsea turn up tonight we could get our @rses handed to us here.”

Hamstring injuries to Philippe Coutinho and Dejan Lovren frustrated in an otherwise brilliant first half display from Jurgen Klopp’s side:


Debate was in full flow over whether Joe Allen meant his ‘pass’ for Jordon Ibe’s opener:


With a vital first leg victory secured, fans gave their thoughts on an excellent performance and result:

Norweigian Wood on the forum said: “Excellent result. Defensively very solid, never felt like we would concede.”


Mike Oscar on the Forum said: “The team deserve a lot of praise for the fight and character shown today, especially after those two early hammies snapping. They battled it out and fully deserved the lead going into half time. The second half felt very even and in the end we deserved our victory.”
