Liverpool fans and neutrals alike react to the clash…
Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho, Dejan Lovren, Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge were the biggest trending topics this afternoon, as we beat Manchester City 2-1 to move into fifth place in the Premier League.
Here’s what Twitter had to say!
Lallana is worth every penny of 25M!!! He was unlucky thrice! But he dint give up & kept running like a horse causing menace for City! #lfc

Impressive from #lfc, sustaining that tempo, energy, pace, pressing. Coutinho, Henderson, Allen, Lallana etc all excellent. Fine goals too.

Lallana lovely touches.

The 3 players to cover the most ground in the Liverpool v Man City game were Lallana (11.9km), Allen (11.6) & Henderson (11.4). Energy.

Coutinho is a too baller. Makes me happy to see a traditional Brazilian football player doing well.

That £8.5m we paid to Inter for Coutinho is moneyball at its best.

Coutinho has become a wonderful footballer. Clever, exciting, talented… and now adding glorious goals #LFC

Well well well Lovren played well, Allen superb and we won, the doubters must be scratching their heads who to slag off

Just spoke to Dejan Lovren, said he couldn't sleep after Besiktas: "I was the saddest person in football." Smiling today though. #LFC

There has been a steady progression with Jordan Henderson: from the team workhorse to the quality, creative, team leader #bbcfootball

STURRIDGE TAKES TOO MANY TOUCHES
— Sam Tighe (@stighefootball) March 1, 2015
Really enjoyed City signing "one greedy bastard" at Sturridge despite having a team full of mercenaries.

@ESPNFC Now that Coutinho have added goals to his game he's unplayable. Get Sturridge and Sterling going and REDs is unstoppable.

@benniborgias think you have a lot of 'good' players. But three better than good approaching world class. sterling coutinho and Sturridge.
