How Twitter reacted to Christian Benteke's Liverpool debut and exquisite goal

Christian Benteke scored a scorcher as Liverpool recorded a 2-1 victory over Swindon Town.

Christian Benteke marked his first appearance for Liverpool with an impressive goal in the Reds' 2-1 victory over Swindon Town. 

The former Aston Villa striker was on target with a terrific volley from 20 yards out in the opening stages of the second half to hand Brendan Rodgers' side the advantage.

However, the North Wiltshire outfit responded just 15 minutes later as Jonathan Obika, levelled proceedings with a fine finish from inside the 18-yard-box. 

At 1-1, the final say went to youngster Sheyi Ojo. The midfielder's shot from distance in the dying stages forced an error by Robins goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux, before the ball bounced across the line to secure the win for the Merseyside club.

Liverpool have struggled for goals since the exit of Luis Suarez, but the arrival of the Belgian international will have filled the Reds fans with optimism ahead of the new season - especially following his exquisite strike at the County Ground. 

Here is how Twitter reacted to Benteke's Liverpool bow.
