Twitter reacts to Liverpool’s improved performance and victory over Bournemouth…
The Liverpool fans were in a jubilant mood after their side’s impressive performance and victory over Championship side Bournemouth in the League Cup quarter-final.
Raheem Sterling scored twice and Lazar Markovic got his first Reds goal in the 3-1 win, and there was plenty of praise for both from the supporters and pundits on Twitter:
I know it was only Bournemouth but it was good to see Liverpool @LFC win today. You can only beat what is in front of you and they did that!

Sterling could end up being a centre forward, done very well in both games he's played there.

Fans were also pleased with the return of Mamadou Sakho from injury:
Another positive thing for Liverpool would be the return of Mamadou Sakho certainly the best Defender we have and a leader is we want

Let's hope we see a lot more of Sakho, Markovic and Lallana after tonight. All three of them played well and should start on Sunday.

Although there was still concern over the performances of a couple of players:
Sakho's positional and tactical awareness is brilliant, so much better than Lovren.

We so need a decent goalkeeper. Brad Jones is not great.

At the moment Brad Jones is to Liverpool's goalkeeping situation what Alistair Cook is to opening in England's ODI team…

Having to decide between Brad Jones & Simon Mignolet in goal is like having to sleep with either Susan Boyle or Katie Hopkins.

And there was a mixed reaction to our semi-final draw against Chelsea, most notably from former player Graeme Souness:
