The FA Cup

Sakho, Sterling & co react to Liverpool win via Twitter

Liverpool stars reacted with delight to their narrow FA Cup win over Bolton.


Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho hailed the club's never give up attitude which helped them save their FA Cup dream.

The Reds clung onto their quest to win the trophy, despite being 1-0 down away at Bolton until the 86th minute. Goals from Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho then remarkably turned the tie around.

Reds midfielder Lucas Leiva was not involved due to a thigh strain, but as soon as Coutinho's injury-time strike hit the back of the net, he took to Twitter to express his glee at the club effectively winning the game.


Bolton were good value for their lead even if the penalty award for their goal was fortunate, but statistically it was a one sided game, for as soon as the home side were reduced to 10 men, they were on the back foot.

Liverpool had 61 per cent of possession, and registered 21 shots at goal in comparison to Bolton's nine.

Sakho and Lucas were not the only Reds to register their satisfaction at the result via social media, with Raheem Sterling and Simon Mignolet also sending messages.



A different message came from striker Daniel Sturridge, who came on as a second half substitute to try help the Reds apply the pressure on Neil Lennon's side.

He sent out a photo along with ex-Bolton duo Kevin Davies and Fabrice Muamba at the stadium after the game. Sturridge knew the duo from his spell at Wanderers when on loan from Chelsea earlier in his career.
