We knew we were buying him as a goal-scoring midfielder but we didn’t expect a goal like that from Gini Wijnaldum.
It is no surprise that Liverpool fans reacted so well to the Dutchman’s goal given what an incredible header it was. The timing of his run, the direction and the power on the header were all perfect, as was Adam Lallana’s stunning cross to set his teammate up.
The former Newcastle man’s goal was enough to see the Reds into half time with a 1-0 lead after a strong opening 45 minutes from the home side.
As expected, Reds fans celebrated in brilliant fashion.
What a header by Gini though??#LIVMCI
