Tuesday night’s 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the League Cup round of 16 proved particularly pleasing for Liverpool.
A brace from Daniel Sturridge was enough to secure progress to the quarter-finals on a night when Jurgen Klopp made 11 changes to his starting lineup.
The likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ovie Ejaria, Marko Grujic and Kevin Stewart were all included, with the former making his first appearance for the Reds in a comfortable senior debut.
The only disappointment, with no Liverpool player letting his side down throughout, was the concession of a penalty midway through the second half, which Spurs striker Vincent Janssen dispatched for only his second goal of the season.
Nevertheless, as they await Wednesday night’s quarter-final draw, Klopp’s side can be encouraged by the result.
Here’s how they reacted on social media, including praise from those who didn’t feature.
The Reds were unsurprisingly happy with the result…
