Liverpool fans lay into Barton after he mocks reaction to Champions League win

Liverpool fans would have woken up with big smiles on their faces today following a memorable night at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp’s side took on the Premier League champions-elect and completely outplayed them in the first half.

Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane all scored for the Reds inside the opening half an hour on Merseyside.

Despite City’s attacking prowess, Pep Guardiola’s men failed to produce a single shot on target, which could in part be to do with the fact that the manager threw in an extra midfielder.

It was a worthy victory for Liverpool, with the entire team receiving praise, including captain Jordan Henderson, who will miss the second leg due to suspension.

Former City midfielder Joey Barton tweeted his thoughts on the game, and once the dust had settled, the radio pundit suggested that Liverpool fans were going overboard in their praise for the team.

In fairness to the outspoken figure, the Reds have to come through another 90 minutes against City in order to reach the semi-finals, and they will not have the roar of the crowd to support them.

Even so,  Liverpool supporters were not best pleased with Barton’s tweets.
