“No down-playing it, this is a massive win” – Fans react to Liverpool’s victory at West Brom

Liverpool went one step closer to securing a place in the top four following a 1-0 victory against West Brom on Sunday afternoon.

West Brom 0-1 Liverpool

Premier League, The Hawthorns
April 16, 2017

Goals: Firmino 46′


Liverpool were still without a number of key players including Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana, Sadio Mane and Ragnar Klavan.

However, they were boosted by the return of Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino in the starting line-up and Lucas Leiva came in for Klavan as Liverpool reverted to a back four.

It was a slow start from both teams as Liverpool failed to provide any clear-cut chances in the first half and rarely threatened West Brom‘s defence.

The opening 45 minutes went by with little action but Firmino’s crucial header on the stroke of half-time gave Liverpool a much-needed lead.

James Milner had a chance to double the Reds’ lead in the second half and Divock Origi also had a goal ruled out for being offside.

West Brom pressed Liverpool’s defence in the final 15 minutes and started to look threatening which meant it was a nervy ending.

Even Ben Foster got involved as an outfield player for the hosts but Liverpool managed to hold on to a crucial 1-0 victory.

Here are all the best reactions from Liverpool supporters on social media throughout the game;

 

With Coutinho and Firmino returning, fans were pleased with the starting line-up…

“Strongest possible XI available. Hopefully a nice early goal can set us on our way.”

After a truly boring start, fans were delighted when Firmino finished the half with a goal…
