Well what a waste of 90 minutes that felt like.

An extremely tedious contest in Kuala Lumpur saw Liverpool struggle to get out of second gear, with numerous players failing to find their best form.

Dejan Lovren, in particular, had another day to forget. He was out-muscled for the hosts’ goal, and missed four opportunities to score at the other end.

Jordon Ibe was the Reds’ standout player by a mile, scoring a stunning goal and proving a constant threat, but in truth this is a match that will not live long in the memory.

Here’s the best of the social media reaction from the match:

‘shankly96’ on the forum:

Toothless performance, Origi and Lovren both should have scored hat-tricks. Too many players taking too many touches, three or four times Lallana literally ran in a circle with the ball.

‘leopoldfrank’ on the forum:

Mark Lawrenson cracked a few funnies… apart from that… nothing much stands out. Oh, I suppose we created a few good chances for Origi that Benteke or Ings would likely have scored. That’s something.

‘SirBillShankly’ on the forum:

Ibe, what a player we have on our hands, easily worth £69m.
