Liverpool defeated Lyon 3-1 on Wednesday night to finish preseason on a high note. The match had plenty of positive moments as the Reds scored goals through Roberto Firmino and Harry Wilson.
Lyon defender Joachim Andersen put through his own goal attempting to clear a Ki-Jana Hoever cross in between the two strikes to help Liverpool gain the victory.
Liverpool now turn their attention to the FA Community Shield on Sunday at Wembley. The fixture will see the Reds take on Manchester City with the first trophy of the season up for grabs.
With the Reds preparing for Manchester City on Sunday, here is a round-up of top Liverpool tweets on Twitter.
Thursday Tweets: Twitter reaction to Liverpool’s win over Lyon and FA Community Shield preparations
Ryan Kent hasn’t been a part of Liverpool’s last two preseason matches and it appears the Reds want £7.5 million for him.
Firmino scored Liverpool’s opener to level the scores against Lyon.
While Liverpool have been criticised for not splashing cash this summer, they are looking to promote from within. It is the same thing clubs are criticised for when they spend money on new transfers.
According to one tweet, Wilson could join Bournemouth for £25m. Bournemouth are the home for ex-Liverpool players.
And in case you missed Wilson’s fantastic goal.
Liverpool’s Sadio Mane, Virgil van Dijk, and Mohamed Salah have been shortlisted for the Best Men’s Player of the year.
A lot of praise and over the top reactions over 16-year-old Harvey Elliott’s play last night. He did look brilliant. Oh, and that video mocking Harry Kane is being blown out of proportion compared to some of the other things other Premier League footballers have done.
And I would agree the signings of both young Elliott and Sepp van den Berg were well scouted moved.
Finally, a lot of praise for central midfielder Naby Keita who had a brilliant opening 45 minutes against Lyon.
