“5 wins, top of the league and still nowhere near top gear!” – Fans react to Tottenham 1-2 Liverpool

Liverpool fans were relieved and delighted in equal measure after the Reds eventually saw off Tottenham with a 2-1 win at Wembley.

Tottenham 1-2 Liverpool

Premier League, Wembley
September 15, 2018

Goals: Lamela 90+3′; Wijnaldum 39’, Firmino 54’

The Reds made hard work of it but made it five wins from five to maintain the 100 percent winning record and flying start to the season.

It was almost an electric opening as Roberto Firmino thought he had scored after just 45 seconds, only for Sadio Mane to be flagged offside.

The deadlock was broken before half-time with a moment to savour, as Gini Wijnaldum’s header just crept over the line to finally give the Dutchman his first away Premier League goal.

Firmino did get his goal early in the second half, tapping in after a goalmouth scramble ensued from Mane’s ball across to double the lead and ultimately seal the three points.

Erik Lamela pulled one back for the hosts in stoppage time, but Liverpool held out to claim a thoroughly deserved three points and stay top of the Premier League table.

Here’s how supporters reacted across social media and on our forums.

There was frustration with Liverpool’s wastefulness in attack…



“Great win great 3 points. But how sloppy was this from Mane and Salah? This match should have been 4-5 to the good we got there at the end but still this was really poor decision making and finishing from both.”

There was plenty of praise for some individuals, though one sub stuck out as strange…


Fans were ultimately over the moon with a fifth straight victory…


“Easier than I thought and only our rusty form stopped us from proper battering them.”
