Liverpool players cLiverpool players celebrate win as Karius pays tribute to Berlin terror attack victimselebrate Merseyside derby win as Loris Karius pays tribute to victims of Berlin terror attack

FOOTBALL By Mirror | December 20th 2016 | 2 min read

It wasn't pretty or at all convincing but that didn't stop Liverpool's stars celebrating their Merseyside Derby win with gusto on social media.

Sadio Mane’s strike came almost as late as Christmas presents on Boxing Day to deliver three points to Jurgen Klopp’s Reds and fire them into second on the Premier League table.

The man who came on to replace him, Lucas Leiva, was unmerciless on Instagram despite his limited impact on the match.

"Win the Derby in the last minute I just have one word to say. #get #in UNLUCKYYYY,” the cheeky Brazilian posted.

Daniel Sturridge, whose shot hit the post before Mane collected the rebound, said it was "Good to be back” and congratulated the goal scorer.

"Yes lads, big win tonight,” chimed in Dejan Lovren after his defensive unit recorded a well-earned clean sheet.

Nathaniel Clyne was more than satisfied with the night’s work, saying "We fought till the end. 3 points. Clean sheet. Job Done. Liverpool is RED.”

Former defender Martin Skrtel may have been moved onto Fenerbahce in Turkey for £5m in the summer, but he remains a staunch Liverpool fan and marked “such a great evening" of results for himself as his new club beat Genclerbirligi 3-0 in the Super Lig before the Reds win.

Simon Mignolet called the win “an early Christmas presents for fans”, but the man he replaced for the last two matches point fans’ attention to issues more serious than football.

Loris Karius said: "Very important derby win for us tonight, but my thoughts are with the victims in my homeland Germany.”

The goalkeeper was referring to the tragedy in Berlin where lorry crashed into a Christmas market killing 12 people.
