Liverpool were held to a frustrating goalless draw in the FA Cup quarter-final against Blackburn on Sunday. We round-up the best reaction on social media during and after the game.

After such a superb run of results and performances, this forgettable 90 minutes was an absolute damp squib from start to finish.

Martin Skrtel’s early injury seemed to ruin the Reds’ momentum a little, and Gary Bowyer’s Blackburn side were more than deserving of a draw. They defending doggedly throughout, and had some good chances to win the game.

Too many Liverpool players were below-par on the day, whether it be Philippe Coutinho, Emre Can, Adam Lallana or Daniel Sturridge, and they will now need a replay to overcome Rovers and reach the semi-finals.

That’s far from ideal, given the fact that that game will likely be a few days before Brendan Rodgers’ side host Manchester United in the Premier League. Being ultra-positive though, at least they are still in the competition.

Here is how social media reacted to the drab 0-0 draw, with fans, journalists and ex-players voicing their opinions.

‘Hope in your heart’ on the forums:

Poor game. That’s a replay in ten days at Blackburn. That will be another tough fight, which we could have done without, but that’s the FA Cup for you: no easy games.

‘abcd’ on the forums:

Frustrating. Important save from Mignolet just after the break or it could have been worse. Toure definitely should have had a pen in 2nd half with the chance he missed. Overall though you just couldn’t see the goal coming. It was Bolton all over again.

We’re still in the FA cup. It’s all a matter of perspective.
