Social Media Reacts to: Liverpool 3 Torino 1

Liverpool completed their preseason campaign this evening, beating Torino 3-1, thanks to goals from Firmino, Wijnaldum and Sturridge. The Anfield Talk’s Dale (@coldcoldgal) took a look at the social media reaction…

After Saturday’s triumphant 5-0 defeat of Napoli, Liverpool went into tonight’s match versus Torino not so quietly confident. Fans came to social media to celebrate the win following the match.

Despite Torino giving Liverpool a real challenge for the opening ten minutes of the match, the Reds pulled it back quickly following a missed penalty with a one-two punch from Firmino and Wijnaldum. It was a constant back and forth during the second half, which saw Henderson make a welcome return, his first outing since the World Cup. It was third time lucky for Sturridge who managed a goal within the last five minutes.

The general consensus is that while Alexander-Arnold and Salah really held their ground in the first half, all eyes were on Fabinho. Supporters were drawn about Fabinho’s performance, though most were positive, happy with how he’s settling into Liverpool’s midfield 3.
