By Emma Sanders

Liverpool players reacted positively on Twitter as the club moved to the top of the Premier League, level on points with Arsenal and Manchester City.

Simon Mignolet, Loris Karius and Nathaniel Clyne all posted celebratory tweets as their side enjoyed another impressive weekend in the league.

It was almost the perfect weekend for Liverpool as Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester City all dropped points and the Reds beat West Brom.

Jurgen Klopp’s side secured a commanding 2-1 win on Saturday evening after watching Tottenham and Arsenal suffer goalless draws earlier on in the day.

Manchester City were then unable to pounce on the opportunity and needed a second-half goal from Kelechi Iheanacho to equalise with Southampton after a shocking defensive error from John Stones put them on the back foot.
