Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Joe Allen's performance in Dortmund comeback win

Joe Allen came on... and Liverpool produced a comeback to beat Borussia Dortmund.

Liverpool produced a sensational comeback as they knocked Borussia Dortmund out of the Europa League.

The German side had struck three times at Anfield to leave the Reds on the verge of elimination, only for Jurgen Klopp's side to turn the tables.

Substitute Joe Allen played a vital role in Liverpool's comeback, despite coming on with his team in a perilous position.

They were 3-1 down and needed to score three themselves, and keep Dortmund out at the other end, which had so far proved difficult.

Yet somehow they managed it, and Allen's calm, incisive passing was a big part of their success. It was no coincidence that their improvement came after he was brought on.

Allen's performance was perfectly timed from an individual standpoint as well as the fact his team desperately needed him.

His contract is set to expire in a year's time, and he told The BBC this week that no talks have taken place over a new deal.

This certainly will have helped his case, and it was very much in keeping with the rest of his displays under new boss Jurgen Klopp.

Here is a look at how Liverpool fans reacted on Twitter to Allen's substitute performance...
