“Perfect performance for 80 minutes” – Fans react to dominating 2-1 victory vs West Brom

Liverpool went level on points with Arsenal at the top of the table after securing a 2-1 victory against West Brom

Jurgen Klopp‘s side took advantage of Tottenham and Arsenal dropping points in goalless draws by clinching a win at Anfield.

Daniel Sturridge was dropped for the starting XI as Adam Lallana returned but Giorginio Wijnaldum wasn’t fit enough enough to start after suffering from a hip injury during the international break.

Emre Can started for the second game in a row in midfield alongside Jordan Henderson and Loris Karius remained in goal.

Divock Origi and Lucas Leiva also made late second-half appearances as the Reds hopes to seal their victory.

Sadie Mane opened the scoring after 20 minutes when Philippe Coutinho‘s delightful dummy set up an opening.

The little magician doubled the lead 15 minutes later with a dazzling run in the box, with the Reds seeing out victory despite a consolation effort from Gareth McAuley.

Here are some of the best reactions to the victory on Twitter.
