“We are a joy to watch at the moment” – Liverpool fans enjoy 5-1 win over Hull City

Liverpool romped to a 5-1 victory over Hull City on Saturday afternoon, as Jurgen Klopp‘s men again blew their opponents away.

Liverpool 5-1 Hull City

Premier League, Anfield
September 24, 2016

Goals: Lallana 17′, Milner 30′, Mane 36′, Meyler 51′, Coutinho 52′, Milner 71′

The Reds were outstanding at Anfield, as they continue to look arguably the Premier League‘s most entertaining side, and moving up to third in the table.

Adam Lallana got the ball rolling with an early strike, and James Milner‘s penalty and Sadio Mane‘s inch-perfect finish saw Liverpool 3-0 up at half-time.

Although David Meyler got a goal back, Philippe Coutinho‘s stunner and another Milner spot-kick completed the rout on Merseyside.

It was a great day to be a Reds supporter, and fans voiced their pleasure at the display on social media and our forums.

There was plenty of praise for individuals too, in particular the fantastic Adam Lallana and Milner:

Great result. Could have been more. Hull were awful today. Great win though, fantastic performances from everyone, but Lallana and Milner especially.

Maria on the forum:

Well, thats what I call entertainement. 5-1. Well done lads. A crucial win against a bus parking team. Milner is a wonderful and resilient LB. Coutinho’s response to that Hull goal was fantastic.
