Agger, Lucas & more: Twitter reacts as Liverpool and Newcastle draw
Samuel Ameobi, Daniel Agger and Lucas Leiva tweet their thoughts as Liverpool and Newcastle share the points at Anfield
Luis Suárez’s second-half strike helped Liverpool rescue a point against Newcastle United at Anfield on Sunday.
The Magpies went ahead when Yohan Cabaye struck a sumptuous shot past Brad Jones after good work by Hatem Ben Arfa, with Suárez levelling with a superb solo effort.
Here is the best of the Twitter reaction from the professionals.
England bowler Graeme Swann (@Swannyg66) does not expect to see his beloved Magpies win: “Considering Newcastle win at Anfield as often as I cook an edible Sunday roast, I am resigned to expecting the worst later!”
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney (@WayneRooney) hails Cabaye’s opening strike: “What a goal by Cabaye.”
Doncaster Rovers winger David cotterill (@cotterill_david) agrees: “What a goal Cabaye #supersunday!”
Rangers captain Lee McCulloch (@jiggymacc6) is just as amazed by Suárez’s equaliser: “Suárez is world class. End of…..”
Former Northern Ireland international Jim Magilton (@magilton7) loves the Uruguayan’s strike: “What a goal! Suárez different class!!”
Arsenal legend Ian Wright (@IanWright0) is in agreement: “Top drawer from Suárez!”
Ex-Everton striker Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) sums up the thoughts of most Premier League followers: “Oh I say! He may be an irritating sod at times but boy can Suárez play…It appears Collocini thinks he’s an irritating sod too.”
Stoke City forward Michael Owen (@themichaelowen) disagrees with Coloccini’s sending off: “Not having that at all. He didn’t touch him and to say there was intent is laughable. Let me tell you, he kicks a moving ball a thousand times a day and doesn’t miss it once. If he wanted to connect with a standing leg then he wouldn’t have missed. He pulls out at the last minute and doesn’t touch him. Not having that’s a red at all.”
But Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) disagrees: “What nonsense @themichaelowen – that was a disgustingly late, crazily high, studs-up challenge by Coloccini. Could have broken Suárez’s leg.”
Newcastle striker Samuel Ameobi (@Sammy_Ameobi) is happy with the point: “Glad to take a hard fought point from today, especially with the sending off…some solid defending #nufc!”
Magpies midfielder Ryan Taylor (@TaylorR1984) watched from the stands and enjoyed the experience: “Well I enjoyed that. Great to sit amongst the Toon army at Anfield. I know a few more songs now!”
Liverpool defender Daniel Agger (@DanielAgger) hails his skipper: “Well done Stevie G. 600 games for Liverpool is amazing. A Great guy and a great captain :)!”
Lucas Leiva (@LucasLeiva87) chimes in: “A part from the result I want to congratulate Gerrard for his 600 appearance. What an achievement. Congrats captain .”
Liverpool midfielder Suso (@suso30fernandez) fell the Reds deserved a win: “Good game today. Unlucky we couldn’t get the three points but I think we deserved. Keep working now and looking forward for the next game.”
