Liverpool moved to the top of the Premier League table on Sunday after the Reds were emphatic 4-0 winners against Tottenham at Anfield.

Younes Kaboul’s own goal handed the Reds a perfect start before Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson sealed the victory, with Brendan Rodgers’s side two points clear of second-placed Chelsea.

And here is a selection of the best Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order to Liverpool’s impressive win.
