‘Can see pain in his eyes’ – Liverpool fans revel in pundit giving them praise after win over Man City

Liverpool fully deserved their 3-0 win over Man City in the Champions League on Wednesday night, and they rightly received praise from all.

However, LFC fans couldn’t quite believe what they were hearing from one pundit in particular, as Roy Keane dished out praise for them on ITV’s highlights show, as seen in the tweet below.

Goals from Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane have put the Reds firmly in control of their quarter-final tie with Pep Guardiola’s side, with the two teams meeting again next week at the Etihad for the second leg.

An early onslaught did the damage as they were 3-0 up after 30 minutes, and Keane was full of praise for their performance on the night as he was also critical of City’s display.

Given his history with bitter rivals Manchester United, it may well have been hard for him to dish out such praise regardless of the level of professionalism that he shows in his role as a pundit for ITV.

With that in mind though, these Liverpool fans were loving watching him assess the game, as they revelled in him being positive about Jurgen Klopp and his players for the way in which they swept aside City in such commanding fashion early on.

It remains to be seen whether or not City can get back into the tie, but given Liverpool’s threat in the attacking third, they will have to be perfect defensively in order to avoid conceding an away goal and being put in an even bigger hole.
