Liverpool won 2-0 away to Preston in the fourth round in the League Cup on Wednesday night, with Divock Origi‘s stunning goal taking the plaudits after the game.

Preston 0-2 Liverpool

League Cup Fourth Round, Deepdale
October 27, 2021

Goals: Minamino 62′, Origi 84′


The Reds bounced into Deepdale still fresh off the back of the stunning 5-0 win at Man United, looking to reach the quarter-finals.

Jurgen Klopp predictably made wholesale changes, but it made little difference to the end result.

A tedious first half saw Preston enjoy the better chances, with Adrian making a key save and Neco Williams blocking the subsequent effort on the line.

Takumi Minamino fired Liverpool in front with a clever finish from close range just after the hour mark, however, easing fears of an upset.

The Reds’ win was sealed by an outrageous strike by Origi, who flicked a finish into the net in acrobatic fashion.

Here’s how supporters reacted to Liverpool’s win on Twitter, Facebook and This Is Anfield’s comments section.
