Peter Crouch sent a perfect tweet to a fan who made fun of Liverpool’s atmosphere

Veteran Premier League striker Peter Crouch won the hearts of the Liverpool fans with his behaviour on social media on Wednesday night.

The Reds had just beaten Pep Guardiola’s high-flying Manchester City 3-0 in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

Goals from Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane have put Liverpool in a very strong position to progress.

Liverpool supporters gave their opponents a scary welcome to Merseyside, throwing cans, bottles and flares at the Man City team bus as it arrived at Anfield.

Club legend Steven Gerrard said that the scenes ahead of kick-off “sour the night for the club”.

“We want a great atmosphere and we want to make it hostile for the opposition but certain individuals have overstepped the line and it’s bang out of order,” Gerrard said on BT Sport.

Man City were forced to bring in a replacement bus to leave the ground after the game.

The 37-year-old Stoke City striker spent three years as a Liverpool player and he clearly still feels an affinity to the club.

At the half-time whistle, Crouch posted a tweet celebrating the incredible performance and the atmosphere inside Anfield.
