Liverpool fans hail Jurgen Klopp’s “biggest flex” as inspired subs “change the game”

Liverpool, at their gritty European best, left the San Siro with a superb 2-0 win against Inter Milan in the Champions League, with the second-half subs changing the game.

Inter Milan 0-2 Liverpool

Champions League Last-16, First Leg, San Siro
February 16, 2022

Goals: Firmino 75′, Salah 83′


The Reds made the trip to the San Siro for a stern test, as the two sides met in the first leg of their last-16 clash.

A cagey opening 45 minutes saw Sadio Mane miss a great headed opportunity, while Hakan Calhanoglu hit the crossbar for the hosts and bounced favourably for the Reds.

Liverpool may have been hit-and-miss for chunks of the second half, but substitute Roberto Firmino headed home brilliantly to give them a priceless lead.

Mohamed Salah then fired home a deflected effort to put Jurgen Klopp‘s men in dreamland, sealing a wonderful victory against a good side.

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