‘Just fun to watch’: Liverpool fans rave about Xherdan Shaqiri’s Aston Villa performance

Liverpool eventually cruised to an FA Cup victory against a very youthful Aston Villa side this evening, despite a first-half scare from Louie Barry.

The talented Villa youngster had stunned Jurgen Klopp’s men with a deserved equaliser, after Sadio Mane had given Liverpool an early lead.

However, a prompt half-time teamtalk and a couple of substitutions did the trick for the Reds, as Mo Salah, Gini Wijnaldum, and Mane again put the game to bed.

In a performance not quite up to Liverpool’s usual brilliance, the player catching the eye the most among Reds fans on social media was midfielder, Xherdan Shaqiri.

The Swiss star came onto the field and helped himself to two assists and, in a nutshell, changed the game.

And that was a thought echoed on Twitter, as a number of Liverpool fans took time out to sing the praises of Shaqiri.
