Football fans on Twitter react as Liverpool return to the top of the Premier League


Football fans from across the world have been reacting on the social media site Twitter this evening after Liverpool returned to the top of the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp‘s side not only beat AFC Bournemouth earlier on the day to leapfrog Manchester City and return to first place, something they did with ease at Anfield.

The Reds romped to a 3-0 victory over Eddie Howe’s Cherries, thanks to a goal each for Sadio Mane, Georginio Wijnaldum and Mohamed Salah.

Many in the football world were pleased to see Liverpool’s title rivals Man City go top by defeating another of the club’s rivals, Everton, in midweek.

But they’ve now slipped back into second place. However, have the chance to return to the top when they host Chelsea tomorrow afternoon at the Etihad Stadium. Three points will do it.

With many rooting against Klopp’s Reds ending their long wait for a first PL title, the reactions to them returning to first were interesting. Check out some of the Tweets below…
