Liverpool fans react to Merseyside derby stalemate

Liverpool and Everton contested a forgettable 0-0 draw on Saturday, and we look at how those associated with the Reds reacted on social media.

In truth, it was one of the least entertaining Merseyside derbies in a long time – the first 0-0 at Goodison since 2000 and a far cry from last season’s 3-3. Chances were few and far between, the Goodison Park atmosphere was flat and the quality from both sides was lacking.

Jordon Ibe put in n impressive showing having been a surprise inclusion in Brendan Rodgers’ starting eleven and almost scored a memorable goal after his stunning first-half strike came back off the post in the early stages. That was the closest either side came to scoring.

The likes of Emre Can and Martin Skrtel impressed at the back, but the majority of Liverpool players struggled to find their best form.

The result leaves the Reds seventh in the Premier League, six points off Southampton in third, four behind Manchester United and Tottenham and just three adrift of Arsenal.

Here is how twitter reacted to the derby showdown.

Frustrating not to turn that one into a win particularly after the earlier results. Spurs game takes on even greater significance now. If Liverpool have any designs on Top 4 that is now a must win game against an in form side. Positive is that clean sheets are starting to mount up now, 4 in a row in the league.

4 clean sheets in a row. What a save that was from Migs. Went off Sahkos knee and all. Looks like Rodgers dropping him has paid off. Super excited for Ibe. Between him and Markovic we have something out there. Once Coutinho came off we really lost our creativity. Sterling was rather poor and Henderson was a passenger even though he tracked back nicely. Can and Skrtel were boss. Can’t lose vs Spurs and a draw does little as well.
