‘Once a Red, always a Red!’ – Liverpool fans loved Joe Allen’s goal against Man United for new club Stoke
It’s fair to say Joe Allen is still very much in the hearts of Liverpool fans after his goal thwarted Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.
The Red Devils could only draw 1-1 with the Premier League’s bottom-placed side Stoke thanks to the Welshman’s late goal at Old Trafford.
Allen, who left Anfield for £13m this summer, has been a revelation for the struggling Potters and was again their best player on Sunday as United were wasteful.
Jose Mourinho’s men had a hatful of chances to put the game out of sight, with £89million man Paul Pogba particularly profligate in front of goal.
Stoke, though, only needed one chance, and it was Allen who fired in after a costly mistake by goalkeeper David de Gea.
And Liverpool fans loved him for it!
