Many Reds have taken to Twitter to let Erling Haaland know exactly what they thought of his performance in the Champions League last night.

The Salzburg forward was very confident before the game. He predicted his side would claim a 3-1 victory and that he would score all three goals himself.

That did not happen, as Liverpool left Austria with a 2-0 victory thanks to Naby Keita and Mohamed Salah. The win ensured Jurgen Klopp’s side progressed to the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Had Liverpool lost, the club would have been dumped into the Europa League and Salzburg would have progressed to the round of 16.

Come the end of the game, those associated with Liverpool had no problems taking aim at Haaland’s pre-game predictions.

Haaland, 19, got what he deserved in the end. Liverpool warranted more respect than what he was giving them before the match.

There is a reason Klopp’s side are the current champions of Europe. Haaland is clearly a talent, but regardless of how good you are, you should never be making such comments before a big match.
