“Jones has got the lot”, “Minamino was everywhere” – Fans react to Liverpool’s 7-2 thrashing of Lincoln

Liverpool progressed to the fourth round of the League Cup after a 7-2 thrashing of Lincoln, with Curtis Jones and Takumi Minamino receiving plenty of praise from fans.

Lincoln 2-7 Liverpool

League Cup Third Round, Sincil Bank
September 24, 2020

Goals: Edun 60′, Montsma 66′; Shaqiri 9′, Minamino 18′ 46′, Jones 32′ 36′, Grujic 65′, Origi 89′

The Premier League champions made the trip to Sincil Bank to take on the League One outfit, with Jurgen Klopp ringing the changes.

It didn’t matter, however, as Liverpool had the tie wrapped up by half-time, thanks to Xherdan Shaqiri‘s free-kick, Minamino’s lovely finish and a Jones double.

Minamino got his second to make it 5-0 to the Reds immediately after half-time, but Tayo Edun bagged a consolation on the hour mark.

Forgotten man Marko Grujic then squeezed in a sixth as Liverpool ran riot, while Lewis Montsma headed home for the hosts.

Divock Origi completed the scoring in the dying minutes, completing a productive night for Klopp’s team – the first 7-2 away win in the club’s history.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the win on Twitter, Facebook and The Anfield Noise forum.

Some liked the look of debutant Tsimikas…





Attention now turns to two quickfire clashes with Arsenal…

“Liverpool gonna trash Arteta’s team come next week.”

Chidi Godsday Agummadu on Facebook.

“So a double-header against Arsenal next: League on Monday and Carabao Cup a few days later. I certainly wouldn’t mind seeing this team again in the cup tie; they certainly deserve another chance. Two wins please, lads.”
