They call it the friendly rivalry, and Liverpool fans were certainly cheering on their cross-city enemies against Manchester City this afternoon. The Reds needed a Toffees win against the Sky Blues to keep their Premier League title alive, and Ross Barkley handed them an early reason to cheer with an absolute corker. Here’s how some Liverpool supporters reacted on Twitter.
Brilliant goal that, buy the kid a pint.
