With all the pre-match talk of Mario Balotelli joining Liverpool, it may have slipped through your timelines unnoticed, but comedian, and Liverpool fan, John Bishop was in attendance tonight.

The ‘A League of Their Own’ star will be hoping his beloved Merseyside Reds will be able to push on from last season’s title push. And if Brendan Rodgers’ side can take a point or three back with them to Anfield that belief will firmly intensify.

One thing that Bishop certainly won’t be laughing about is, as a respected comedian, the fact ol’ Brendan laughed at his own Mario Balotelli joke in his pre-match interview. Not cool, Brendan. Not cool at all.
