Pic of the day: Why Liverpool didn't fly home last night

It looks like they made the right decision.

LIVERPOOL WERE LEFT stranded in Italy overnight due to a ‘technical fault’ with their airplane.

Now, we’re no experts in aerodynamics, but we’re fairly certain that when an engine becomes divorced from its wing, it might be better to come back tomorrow.

The Reds’ 18-year-old forward Suso tweeted this picture last night, following the 1-0 win over Udinese that sealed his side’s progression to the Europa League knockout rounds.

Brendan Rodgers’ squad was forced to spend the night in a hotel.

With Sunday’s clash with West Ham in mind, Liverpool’s coaches were anxious to keep as much of the squad’s normal routine as possible.

They undertook a pool recovery session ahead of the return flight on Friday afternoon, while they travel to London on Saturday in preparation for Sunday’s game against Sam Allardyce’s men.
