“Job done”, “Ox the standout” – Liverpool fans react to 2-1 win vs. Genk

Liverpool beat Genk 2-1 in the Champions League, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scoring a second-half winner and impressing fans.

Liverpool 2-1 Genk

Champions League, Anfield
November 5, 2019

Goals: Wijnaldum 14′, Oxlade-Chamberlain 53′; Samatta 40′

Jurgen Klopp‘s side were looking for a third successive win in the competition, as the defence of their crown gathers pace.

Gini Wijnaldum flicked the Reds in front with a neat finish after 14 minutes, setting his side on the way to victory.

Mbwana Samatta equalised before half-time, however, capitalising on some poor marking from a corner to stun the Anfield crowd.

Liverpool were back in front when Oxlade-Chamberlain finished clinically in front of the Kop – that’s the way the scoreline stayed.

Napoli’s 1-1 draw at home to Salzburg means the Reds top Group E after four matches, putting them in an excellent position, with Napoli next up in Europe.

Here’s how Liverpool supporters reacted to the result on Twitter, Facebook and This Is Anfield’s forums.


Fans were excited by Oxlade-Chamberlain’s performance…

“I sincerely hope Klopp is watching Ox’s contribution tonight and he starts him in midfield against City.” – John Gardner on Facebook.


There were some concerns about Liverpool’s display, though…

“Not convincing is an understatement, they had 2 shots and scored with one, the defence is going backwards.” – Jimmy Davies on Facebook.


Others found positives…

“Thought we were great for 75 minutes but we need to put the chances away and that then causes us to get nervous.” – sportbilly1966 on the forums.


Mohamed Salah received mixed reviews…

“Salah need to up his game.” – John English Ufwanga on Facebook.
