Liverpool’s victory over Preston North End was hardly one for the purists on Wednesday night.

Fortunate not to go in behind at the break at Deepdale, having not even registered a shot on target themselves, second half goals from Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi secured a 2-0 win to book the Reds’ passage to the quarter-finals of the League Cup.

While Liverpool fans will hardly be singing about this one in the weeks and months ahead, in contrast to Sunday’s 5-0 thrashing of Manchester United at Old Trafford, it did at least produce a moment supporters will never forget courtesy of Origi’s outrageous scorpion kick goal.

But while the Belgian’s unorthodox moment of magic will have made plenty of headlines, here’s some of the moments that might have fallen under the radar against the Championship side.

The other United chant

Liverpool fans still sing about a famous 5-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park back in 1982 to this day, and, if this evidence is anything to go by, the Reds’ emphatic victory over Manchester United last weekend is set to get the same treatment.

With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer clinging to his job for now, the travelling Liverpool support did not take long to burst into a rendition of ‘Ole’s at the wheel’ at Deepdale to mock their old rivals, with the ditty dusted off a number of times throughout the night.

Of course, they aren’t the only side to mock their bitter rivals with Leeds United and Man City fans bursting into similar chants during their respective League Cup meetings with Arsenal and West Ham United.

But as they were the side to actually deliver the deadly blow to United, it did allow supporters to push ahead with a more unique chant against Preston, reminding all at Deepdale that the Reds “played the Mancs on a Sunday night and they hardly touched the ball”.

As if we’ll ever forget.

X-rated shouts

With supporters now firmly back at home inside stadiums, the days of hearing every utterance from players, officials and coaching staff are now a thing of the past.

But that doesn’t stop the odd x-rated cry from bursting through.

Former Liverpool youngster Joe Rafferty was stationed at right wing-back for Preston, allowing Reds loanee Sepp van den Berg to be utilised in his preferred centre-back position.

And one moment from the former, shortly before the interval would have had his grandmother blushing when the defender slipped when clearing the ball upfield, proceeding to boot it out of play for a throw-in.

Falling off the pitch, his four-letter expletive was picked up by the cameras and prompted an apology to sensitive supporters watching at home from the Sky Sports commentators.

But Rafferty wasn’t the only player to show his frustration on the pitch during the game, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain another player to scream out into the night air when getting a simple through-ball to Kostas Tsimikas completely wrong and watching it fly out of play behind the goal.

No cameras were around to pick up the audio but you didn’t need to be a skilled lip-reader to work out what the England international was saying!

Curtis Jones-inho

With the game won, Jurgen Klopp will have been grateful for being able to replace Curtis Jones and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in stoppage-time as the duo came through the match unscathed.

After all, with injuries stocking up in the Liverpool midfield, the German can hardly afford anymore absentees in his engine room.

With it currently unclear if Fabinho, Naby Keita, James Milner or Thiago Alcantara will be able to return at the weekend against Brighton, the duo are likely to retain their places on Saturday and start alongside captain Jordan Henderson.

It was admittedly a mixed night for the pair at Deepdale as a much-changed Reds side struggled to find their rhythm, with Oxlade-Chamberlain showing good skill on the ball, trying hard and unfortunate not to score. However, not everything came off for him as he continues to take his time to rediscover his best form.

In contrast, Jones continues to look as confident as ever as demonstrated by one outrageous piece of skill late on up against Joe Rafferty and Brad Potts.

Coming not far outside his own box, the midfielder stood on the ball to sidestep the defender, similar to Mohamed Salah’s recent efforts against Man City and Watford, before performing a perfect ‘elastico’ on the sideline to retain possession.

Made famous by the likes of Ronaldinho, even the Brazilian would have been impressed by this usage of one of his signature moves.

And while Rafferty is one of a number of former Liverpool youngsters plying their trade across the Football League, it was further evidence of what sets Jones apart and leaves him well-placed to enjoy a long career at Anfield.

However, while the England Under-21s international might have been able to get past the Preston right wing-back, he had no such luck against Reds loanee Sepp van den Berg minutes later.

A perfectly-executed sliding tackle on the halfway line stopped Jones in his tracks and saw the young Dutchman finish the game by hearing his name chanted by supporters against his parent club.

Angry stewards

With Liverpool supporters appropriately filling The Bill Shankly Kop at Deepdale, Curtis Jones wanted to show his appreciation by handing over his shirt to a couple of lucky fans after the final whistle.

However, having had to sidestep an excited pitch invader on his way to the stand, the Preston stewards weren’t exactly making life easy for him as they tried to talk him away from the crowd.

Still, that didn’t stop the 20-year-old as he dodged outstretched arms, climbed over the advertising hoarding and went into the stand to hand over his shirt to two lucky young fans.

Having been in their shoes himself only a few years ago, Jones is definitely one of their own.
