It was the third time this season that Brendan Rodgers’ side have conceded a goal in stoppage time at Anfield, and put a stop on a result that would have kickstarted Liverpool’s season.

Steven Gerrard’s free-kick midway through the second half looked to have given the Reds the three points before Jagielka produced an incredible strike at the Kop end.

We round up a selection of the fans’ reactions to the result and performance, from social media and our forums.

Doggie in the forums:

“A really encouraging performance but we lacked cutting edge up front and despite sitting too deep towards the end ultimately that’s what cost us two points.”

ChicagoRed in the forums:

“Not being able to score from open play a concern. That Balotelli shot from point blank range and a pure luck save was really one of the few chances we had all day. Moreno pk within 5 minutes. Barry second yellow handball pk.

If Lallana and Balotelli play like that we’ll be ok. ”

Yo55arian22 in the forums:

“Thought it was a decent performance. Not much anyone could’ve done about that Jagielka strike. We’re sorely missing some teeth up front though. Balotelli is decent but doesn’t have the sharpness or make the runs that Sturridge makes, and that Suarez made. Lallana looks great. Sterling likewise. I really fear for our chances of making it back into the Champion’s League though. Was hoping that over the next couple of years we could establish ourselves again as a Champion’s League team.”
