Stoke City 0-3 Liverpool

Premier League, Bet365 Stadium
29 November, 2017

Goals: Mane 17′, Salah 83′, 88′.

Forwards Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino returned to the starting XI after being rested for Saturday’s 1-1 draw at home to Chelsea, but Mohamed Salah was on the bench, with Dominic Solanke handed a rare start in attack.

Mane gave the Reds a deserved first half lead. He and Solanke had further chances to extend the Reds’ lead.

Simon Mignolet was at the centre of controversy after a late tackle prompted calls for a red card from Stoke supporters but he was only shown a yellow.

Two former Reds, Peter Crouch and Joe Allen, combined to almost grab Stoke an equaliser but Mo Salah came on as a substitute to score Liverpool’s second and third as they secured a 3-0 win in style.

Here are the reactions from Liverpool supporters on social media throughout the game:

 

Fans were shocked to see Mohamed Salah rested from the starting XI…

“Why doesn’t he play his strongest team available in the league, we are not good enough to be swapping and changing.” – Paul Ellis on Facebook.

 

But fans were delighted when Mane gave Liverpool a 1-0 lead…

 

Liverpool should have held a greater lead at half-time through Mane…

“I have no idea why Mané slowed down so quickly after receiving the ball when he’s clean through.” – Richard reckons on the forums.

 

When Salah came on to score two goals fans were thrilled…

 

Liverpool won 3-0 and fans were delighted at full-time…

“Salah is the best money we have spent on a signing since Suarez. Great victory!” – Ciaran Richardson on Facebook.

“Regardless how, we did the job. Salah is beyond ridiculous. Will take the 3 points from Salah, Mane and Firmino. Solanke and Ox showed up. Gini, Can, Defence and GK still an issue.” – Reds Friends on the forums.

“A cold Wednesday night at stoke is the kind of game only winners win.” – Amine Lakhal on Facebook.

“Great result, Great club, Great players!” – Tunde Falami on Facebook.
