David Meyler helped Hull City seal their first-ever win against Liverpool as Steve Bruce’s men edged to a 3-1 win at the KC Stadium.

The hosts went ahead when Jake Livermore’s shot deflected past Simon Mignolet but Steven Gerrard levelled from the spot seven minutes later, before David Meyler and a Martin Skrtel own goal helped the home side secure three points in the second half.

Here is the best of the Twitter reactions from the professionals, and match-winners, in chronological order.

Former Liverpool striker Neil Mellor (‏@NeilMellor33) is concerned by Daniel Sturridge’s injury: “A huge blow to hear Sturridge out of the festive period with some massive away games ahead this month. #LFC”

Ex-Reds midfielder Dietmar Hamann (‏@DietmarHamann) joking backs plans to change Hull’s name: “Looking forward now to see the Hull City Tigers.Got to avoid the sin bin to have a chance against Liverpool.”

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler (‏@Robbie9Fowler) wants more from Victor Moses: “Victor Moses for me…. Try to do that in the right areas.”

Southampton hero Matt Le Tissier (‏@mattletiss7) is well-placed to judge what amounts to a great free-kick: “Quality free-kick that from Stevie G #toptopdraw”

England legend Gary Lineker (‏@GaryLineker) agrees with Le Tissier: “Superb free-kick from Gerrard. Mark my words this young player is going places.”

Norwich City’s Elliott Bennett ‏(@Ebenno88) heaps praise on popular Hull midfielder Tom Huddlestone: “Tom Huddlestone is technically quality. Both feet, doesn’t panic under pressure and keeps the ball moving!”

Everton defender Shane Duffy (‏@ShaneDuffy34) congratulates Meyler: “Yes @DavidMeyler7 what a goal son! Love that get in.”

Former Liverpool midfielder Jason McAteer (‏@MCATEER4) can’t understand why Rachel Yankey is doing punditry on Sky: “Don’t ever remember Rachel Yankey playing in the PL or playing for Liverpool or playing against Hull. Great women footballer though.”

Hull man Ahmed Elmohamady (‏@Elmo_27) is delighted with the result: “What a game!! What a result, Well done to everyone!”

Tigers midfielder Tom Huddlestone (‏@Huddz8) wants credit for Skrtel’s own goal: “Great win and performance from the lads today!! Massive three points needed after last weeks results. Goal panel can do me a favour I doubt it.”

Finally, Meyler (‏@DavidMeyler7) thrilled to net his first Hull goal in their first-ever win against the Reds: “Great three points today against a very good Liverpool side. Over the moon to score my first my goal. Lads were tremendous today. Arsenal next.”
