Neville, Owen & more: Twitter reacts to West Brom’s win at Liverpool
Didi Hamann, Phil Neville and Michael Owen all tweet their thoughts after West Bromwich Albion secure an historic win at Liverpool
Gareth McAuley and Romelu Lukaku scored late goals to inspire West Bromwich Albion to a remarkable 2-0 victory over Liverpool at Anfield on Monday night.
The Baggies duo scored in the final 10 minutes to seal three points after Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard had missed a 76th-minute penalty.
Here is the best of the Twitter reaction – in chronological order – to what will be remembered as one of West Brom’s greatest away nights in the Premier League.
Former Liverpool striker Neil Mellor (@NeilMellor33) was backing Fabio Borini to have a positive impact: “Got a feeling Borini going to chip in with a vital goal. Let’s hope I’m right! #dueone”
England legend Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) is impressed by West Brom’s goalkeeper: “Foster’s unbeatable #Goodcall”
Ex-Reds striker Michael Owen (@themichaelowen) gives us his thoughts on the match: “Wasn’t the worst pen in the world. What a save by Foster. Debatable penalty in the first place to be fair… Liverpool not been at their best but still done more than enough to win this game. Just not enough players in their team who score goals….”
Former Sunderland man Michael Gray (@mickygray33) revels in McAuley’s header: “Goooaaaaallllllllllll wow one chance one goal…. we might hear the crowd now.. sssshhhhhhhhhhhhh…!!! Anfield.”
Liverpool legend Dietmar Hamann (@DietmarHamann) tries to defend Danny Agger for some poor defending: “I wouldn’t fancy that Lukaku run at me at full speed #powerfulboy!”
Ex-Wimbledon striker Jason Euell (@jasoneuell) is impressed by West Brom’s big man: “Big 19 year old… Touch – Finish… Loui Kaka…”
As is Sky’s Chris Kamara (@chris_kammy): “Lukaku with strength power & pace as he goes past Agger to make it 2-0. Liverpool went to pieces after the opening goal.”
While former Reds striker Stan Collymore (@StanCollymore) hails the Belgian’s movement: “Lukaku had Agger on toast for the second goal. Shaped to go inside, breezed past the Dane, hard and low finish. Smash & grab Baggies raid.”
Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand (@rioferdy5) is enjoying his rivals’ misfortune: “West Brom have done #Lfc at Anfield….well worth the win too. Lukaku with a lovely first touch + finish. Goodnight world!”
Arsneal legend Ray Parlour (@RealRomfordPele) felt Sturridge was missed: “Disappointing result for Liverpool. Missed Sturridge. Strong in the middle of the park. Mulumbu, Yacob and Morrison. Big result for Steve Clarke.”
Finally, Steven Reid (@stevenreid12) praises his goalkeeper: “Don’t know how I put that over from four yards but I’ll take it… Great win @BenFoster Immense.. Fans were class #boingboing”
