Liverpool fans have a new Game of Thrones-themed nickname for one of their players

One is known for his fearless warrior heart, inner-strength in the face of adversity, and overcoming persecution. The other is a fictional character.

Liverpool fans haven't experienced the best of seasons so far. There's been metaphorical bloodshed as their side has been put to the sword on more than one occasion. But a new hero has emerged in the shape of former Burnley striker Danny Ings.
