Collymore and Mellor react on Twitter to Liverpool draw with Borussia Dortmund

Liverpool drew away to Borussia Dortmund.

Former players and pundits have praised Jurgen Klopp on Twitter following Liverpool’s draw with Borussia Dortmund.

The Reds travelled to Germany on Thursday evening for the first leg of their Europa League quarterfinal tie.

Many had expected a tough evening for them against Klopp’s former side after they comfortably dispatched title chasing Tottenham Hotspur in the last round.

Instead, they were highly impressive as a Divock Origi goal saw them take the lead before Mats Hummels equalised just after the break.

It was a result that arguably suited the Reds more than their hosts, and Gary Lineker was keen to praise Klopp, saying he is slowly transforming them as a team.

He was not the only one who was impressed by the result either, with former star Stan Collymore saying the performance harked back to some of their best European nights.

Liverpool will now be hoping they can secure their progression into the semi finals when the two sides meet at Anfield for the second leg.

They will need to be wary though, at 1-1 the game is finely balanced and Dortmund are certainly of capable of hitting back away from home.
