A look at social media reaction to Liverpool's win.

Jurgen Klopp recorded his first win as Liverpool manager last night, with his team knocking Bournemouth out of the Capital One Cup.

The Reds won 1-0 through a goal from Nathaniel Clyne, after excellent work from Joao Teixeira.

Liverpool are now through to the Capital One Cup quarter-finals, where they have been drawn an away tie against Southampton.

The win was acknowledged by Linda Henry, wife of Liverpool owner John Henry, who took to Twitter to congratulate the team.

Among the players to feature for the club last night was Cameron Brannagan, with the teenage midfielder handed his first ever start for the club.

Another promising youngster, Pedro Chirivella, was an usused substitute, and he also took to Twitter to congratulate Brannagan, who himself commented, and debutant Connor Randall.

 

Jurgen Klopp's decision to call upon young players will only serve to inspire others in the club's academy that they can make the breakthrough themselves.

With talented forward Jerome Sinclair another unused substitute, and Jordon Ibe impressing on the wing, Liverpool are flush with potential breakout talent, and in Joao Teixeira's case, last night was so nearly one to savour, had his backheeled attempt which set up Nathaniel Clyne's goal, not been denied.
