A much-changed Liverpool secured a convincing 2-1 victory against Tottenham Hotspur in the League Cup round of 16.

Liverpool’s main man, Daniel Sturridge, broke the deadlock after less than 10 minutes to give the hosts a deserved early lead.

The Reds’ youngsters, including debutant Trent Alexander-Arnold, dominated the first half but couldn’t capitalise and began to fizzle out towards the end of the opening 45 minutes.

The second half was an even better display, with Divock Origi producing plenty of chances and Sturridge eventually putting another away to double Liverpool’s lead.

There was disappointment when Spurs were given an opportunity to get themselves back into the game, with Vincent Janssen converting a penalty in the 75th minute.

But after a few nervy moments, Liverpool were able to hold on to their 2-1 victory and book a place in the quarter-finals.

Here’s the best of the social media reaction from throughout the game.

There was much discussion after Danny Ings was left out of the starting lineup…
