These are the best jokes that Twitter had to offer as three Liverpool players limped off with hamstring injuries during their 1-0 League Cup semi-final first leg win at Stoke.
First Philippe Coutinho, then Dejan Lovren and finally Kolo Touré suffered the same fate over the course of the match, adding to an already lengthy list of absentees for an exasperated Jürgen Klopp.
It’s not often a team suffers three hamstring injuries in one game, so naturally there were plenty of jokes doing the rounds…

Er, make that 13.
You'll Never Walk Alone. Because your hamstring has gone.

Liverpool with one foot in the final, the other pulled a hamstring #LFC

@TheBettingBar probably the only leg in Liverpool who's hamstring hasn't gone

Hamstring gets the ball of the match tonight for the hat-trick.

Not a good night for the 'elite, modern managers know how to prevent muscle injuries' crowd…

I can't believe we suffered so many hamstring injuries tonight. I asked Joe Allen if he could believe it. He said No, I can't believe it.

Kolo Toure's hamstring goes now! Brendan Rodgers is sitting at home, stabbing voodoo dolls in the hamstring with pins, laughing his head off
