“A win’s a win but that was painful!” – Liverpool fans react to 1-0 win over Huddersfield

Liverpool were forced to dig deep to maintain their unbeaten start in the Premier League with a 1-0 win at Huddersfield, but the performance left fans frustrated.

Huddersfield 0-1 Liverpool

Premier League, John Smith’s Stadium
October 20, 2018

Goals: Salah 23′

Liverpool, again, were far from their best against Huddersfield but a moment of class from Mohamed Salah sealed all three points in a game where sloppiness reigned supreme.

The Reds opted for a change of personnel following the international break and the lack of cohesion amongst the squad was apparent, where late pressure from the hosts ensured the seventh league win of the season was anything but straightforward.

However, the result maintains Liverpool’s unbeaten start to the campaign, and keeps them level on points with Man City at the top.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the result on social media and our forums.


Fans were overjoyed by the game-defining quality from Salah…



A historic defensive performance was the standout for many…





Fans aired frustration over Liverpool’s lack of control, but maintained perspective on the bigger picture…

“The only good thing about this is that with a win, it is league winning form…play shite but still win…not fun to watch though…”

“We should be absolutely delighted. Look we’re level on points at the top and can’t keep playing like this but things will change and we will get our form back. Winning and playing bad. We never usually do that. Keep the faith reds. YNWA.”
