“Not pretty but job done” – Fans react to Liverpool’s 1-0 win at Plymouth

Liverpool scraped past Plymouth Argyle in the FA Cup third round replay on Wednesday night, with Lucas Levia’s header proving the only goal of the tie.

There were a number of fresh faces in the Liverpool squad as Harry Wilson, Jordan Williams, Paulo Alves and Connor Randall were all named on the bench.

Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi and Philippe Coutinho started for the Reds who made two changes to the side from the 0-0 draw at Anfield.

Unsurprisingly, Liverpool dominated the early stages but the opening goal came from the most unlikeliest source as it was centre-back Lucas who netted his first goal in seven years.

There wasn’t too much to get excited about after that but Wilson came on as a substitute in the second half to make his debut for the club.

Plymouth almost scored an incredible equaliser with 20 minutes left to play but it smashed off the post before Liverpool had a chance to double their lead with a penalty in the 86th minute.

However, Origi fired straight into the hands of the keeper which summed up a tough night for the striker and Liverpool held on to win 1-0.

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