They say revenge is a dish best served cold. The idea being that you bide your time and eventually get even with the guy who has being flirtatiously texting your wifey by doing something incredibly subtle but incredibly effective a few months down the line so he doesn’t know it’s you.
For example, you could tie a red balloon to his car every time it rains until he eventually associates red with sadness and begins crying at will whenever you wear a red t-shirt in front of him, making sure your wifey’s there to see his wimpish tears. Ingenuous, I’m sure you’ll agree.
But facing Manchester City just three days after losing to them in the Capital One Cup final, Liverpool don’t have time for the old softly-softly-catchy-flirty-texter approach.
Instead, they’ve taken their revenge on the Citizens, who eventually beat them via penalty shoot-out on Sunday afternoon, by quite simply absolutely destroying them in the Premier League at Anfield. Adam Lallana
Adam Lallana opened the scoring after half an hour, James Milner followed up just before the interval and Roberto Firmino assured a three-goal lead on the hour mark, latching onto an expertly weighted Philippe Coutinho pass before curling the ball beyond Joe Hart.
Needless to say, Liverpool fans are having quite the party on social media.
We can watch MOTD!!!!! #LFC

Can't help but think City had a BIG night out on Sunday after the final and clearly we didn't. Great result though #LFC

Beating Manchester City 7-1 over two games in PL, but lose cup final playing poorly. A real mystery, this #LFC team.

In 2012, #LFC lost 2-1 to Chelsea in the cup final and then beat them 4-1 at Anfield a few days later, this has a similar feel to it..
