Liverpool Fans Have Hijacked Jack Grealish's 2012 Tweet About Manchester City
Liverpool fans have hijacked a Jack Grealish tweet from 2012 begging him to sign for the club - after predicting they'd beat rivals Manchester City.
Grealish put in a fine display for England on Sunday night and managed to stand out despite his side losing 2-0 to Belgium.
The 25-year-old is currently captain of boyhood team Aston Villa but Reds fans think he has a soft spot for them.
That's because back in 2012, Grealish said Liverpool would run out 2-1 winners over City and signed off with 'Come on the reds.'
Man city vs Liverpool ??? I'm having liverpool ! Come on the reds !!! Predictions??

While there aren't any concrete links to Jurgen Klopp's side, some Twitter users have bombarded the tweet with welcome messages.

Sunday marked Grealish's first competitive start for England and he showed exactly why he's regarded as one of the Three Lions' most naturally gifted stars.
"I found out yesterday," Grealish told Sky Sports when asked about starting the game. "I knew this was my chance to try and impress. These are the things I love - the pressure of wanting to do well.
"For the past 24 hours I've been watching little clips of my favourite players, which I do before every game. I've just been buzzing for the game.
"There's been no nerves, I've just been so excited and wanted it start. But I'm obviously gutted we didn't get the win.
"I watch loads of clips. I watched clips of [Kevin] De Bruyne, clips of [Philippe] Coutinho. Players that are in my position really.
"That's what I've done since I was a little kid and I still do it to this day. I have no shame in saying that. That's what gets me going for football matches."
