Liverpool eased to a 2-0 victory at home to Union SG in the Europa League, and many supporters singled out the performances of two Reds players in particular.
The Reds hosted the Belgian side on Thursday evening, and it was nice to see on-pitch action take centre stage after a dramatic week of VAR controversy.
Here’s how Liverpool fans reacted to the win on social media and in This Is Anfield’s comments section.
It certainly wasn’t a classic, but Liverpool got the job done…
Take the win and move on. 100% we don’t want this one replayed.
A win is a win. #LFC.

Liverpool have followed up one of the most controversial games in decades with a match less entertaining than The Harry Hill Movie.

“Jesus Jurgen you made that difficult for us. Roll on Brighton“

“Should have been easier…job done…3pts!”

Union SG's support has been the best thing about this game

This could be the worst game I've ever watched.

Will be kind and call that a 'taking care of business' kind of night. With six points on the board, #LFC are in a very strong position – can probably get through with a win and a draw and still four games left.

Gravenberch was a star performer at Anfield, with many impressed by him…
The more I see of Gravenberch the more I question what happened in Munich for him to only get 5 starts in all competitions last season. Got a goal and two assists for us already. We've gone from the most depressing midfield in the world to one of the most exciting.

Bayern have let a gem go without realising

“I think Grav might just get the nod ahead of Elliot and Endo for the 3rd MF spot for the weekend.”

Gravenberch was the star of the show in the first half.
Scored the goal, completed 3/4 dribbles and won 4/5 of his ground duels. pic.twitter.com/vWBeK6QWmo

Gravenberch is as mad as a box of frogs and I love it.

Jarell Quansah also impressed greatly once again…
Quansah looks so composed at the back, we might have found another ? pic.twitter.com/ln0OdQ6rZC

Quansah is a legit first team player.

“What a rock Quansah is”
– disqus_CK8gOUKU7j in the This Is Anfield comments
Quansah has really good temperament and calmness when he has to defend you need that to get to the next stage. Not seen that from any of the other CBs we've tried to bring through
— R8 ?? (@Nabyllionaire) October 5, 2023
Lots of things for Jarrell Quansah to learn and lots of space for him to improve but there is definitely a player of rich potential in that big frame. This isn’t saying he’s going to become world class, it’s simply acknowledging a young man with a lot of ability ?

Job done. Next up, Brighton before the international break.
