Liverpool beat Stoke City 1-0 in the Capital One Cup semi-final yesterday.
Liverpool supporters have reacted positively to Joe Allen’s performance against Stoke City in the Capital One Cup semi final on Tuesday evening.
Allen was selected to start in the heart of Liverpool’s midfield for the contest and he put in an excellent performance.
The Welsh midfielder has come under criticism during his time with the Reds, but his quality came to the fore at the Britannia Stadium.
Allen set up Liverpool’s goal in their 1-0 win over the Potters, as he played a wonderful no-look pass to set up Jordon Ibe.
The former Swansea City man was also energetic and combative throughout as Jurgen Klopp’s side picked up an important victory.
Liverpool now hold an advantage to protect in the second leg, which will take place at Anfield on 26 January.
The Reds are the favourites to make it to Wembley, where the winner of Manchester City’s tie against Everton awaits.
Here is the best reaction from Liverpool supporters on social media site Twitter to Allen’s performance against Stoke.

Great result for #LFC last night. Allen, Can, Lucas & Toure stood out. With injuries though, wonder if it's worth recalling Wisdom/Ilori.— Sarah James (@SJview) January 6, 2016

Slating Joe Allen is just a go-to thing to say for clueless #LFC fans with nothing interesting to say. Block them all.— Kop·ol·o·gy (@Kopology) January 6, 2016
that no-look assist from Allen !! amazing !! he had a great game last night ! #LFC— Rafay (@Ab_Rafe) January 6, 2016
And for the last time, STOP with the Allen-Pirlo comparison. Yes, he had a great game last night but that doesn't mean anything! #LFC— Uday (@uday_telkar) January 6, 2016
I thought Joe Allen has one of his best games in a #LFC shirt last night. Was actually disappointed he got subbed...— Steve MacMillan (@Steviem777) January 6, 2016
