‘Better than Messi don’t you know’ – Liverpool fans pleased for Taki Minamino! – This Is Anfield

Takumi Minamino scored a double to give Liverpool victory in the FA Cup, and he’s now scored more goals than Lionel Messi this season!
FA Cup fifth round, Anfield
March 2, 2022
Goals: Minamino 27′ & 39′; Rupp 76′
Jurgen Klopp‘s side were looking to stay in the hunt across four competitions this season, achieving that goal in relatively comfortable fashion at Anfield.
Minamino opened the scoring with a well-taken strike, before thundering home his second of the night – his ninth of the season – soon after.
The second half was more of a low-key affair, with Lukas Rupp pulling a goal back for Norwich but the Reds hold on to qualify for the quarter-final for the first time under Klopp.
Here’s how supporters reacted to Liverpool’s victory on Twitter, Facebook and This Is Anfield’s comments section.

Curtis Jones has been fabulous. The way he is carrying the ball is fantastic. Direct and very effective. Zero qualms with when he’s releasing it as well.

Curtis Jones is a superb player…I really don't care if no one agrees… #LIVNOR

Origi and Ox have been poor today. Trying way too hard. Hopefully they score though #LFC

Ox is finished

Takumi Minamino is the reason Liverpool are winning the quadruple and not the double. Cup-tie Minamino is up there with French Open Nadal, UCL Cristiano, Play-off Lebron.

That game was everything I expected it to be: a comedown after Sunday but a win, nonetheless.
Minamino excellent, Ox less so, quadruple still on ?

Give yer ma a buzz and tell her to put the champagne on ice

Quadruple is still on? #LFC #EmiratesFACup
— Charlotte Coates (@CACoates96) March 2, 2022

Quadruple is possible. Won’t say much.
— Jarred (@JarredLfc) March 2, 2022

The quad dreams remains alive for another while longer then ?
