“Get in there, massive!”, “What a win!” – Fans react to Liverpool’s 3-2 win over Leicester City

Liverpool bounced back from their cup defeat against Leicester with a 3-2 victory against the same team in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

Leicester City 2-3 Liverpool

Premier League, King Power Stadium
September 23, 2017

Goals: Okazaki 45+2′, Vardy 68′; Salah 15′, Coutinho 23′, Henderson 65′

Liverpool had an electric start as Emre Can‘s strike smashed off the post but Mo Salah couldn’t follow up with the rebound.

The forward made amends just moments later as he gave Liverpool an early lead with a cute header on the far post.

Philippe Coutinho silenced his critics with a sensational free-kick shortly afterwards as Liverpool held a commanding 2-0 lead after just 25 minutes of action.

They seemed to take their foot off the gas slightly before half-time and Leicester pounced as Shinji Okazaki scored with just moments to spare in the opening 45 minutes.

Jordan Henderson scored Liverpool’s third in the second half but it was quickly answered by a goal from Leicester‘s Jamie Vardy.

Simon Mignolet then turned hero as he saved Vardy’s spot-kick, securing the 3-2 victory.

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