“Great things on the horizon” – Fans react to Liverpool’s 1-0 victory against Man City

Liverpool rounded off an exciting 2016 with a hugely impressive 1-0 victory against Manchester City at Anfield on New Year’s Eve.

Joel Matip and Philippe Coutinho were both forced to sit out but Emre Can was drafted into the starting lineup to bolster the midfield.

Roberto Firmino moved back into his preferred No. 9 role which meant Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge had to settle for a place on the bench.

It was Georginio Wijnaldum who broke the deadlock, scoring with a superb header after just eight minutes and Liverpool went on to dominate the first half.

Manchester City had to wait 53 minutes for their first shot on goal but they grew into the game and the Reds were under pressure in the second half.

Jurgen Klopp‘s side held on though, and it was a terrific tactical display which earned Liverpool a vital three points.

Here are all the best reactions from social media throughout the game.
