“From horrible to a nightmare” – Liverpool fans react to dreadful West Ham defeat

Following Liverpool’s awful performance and result against Slaven Bilic’s well-drilled West Ham United, we round up the social media reaction from during and after the clash.

On an afternoon that was essential for the Reds to build on their positive start to the season, they completely failed to do so – taking a huge backward step against West Ham.

It was a miserable afternoon from start to finish at Anfield – with Brendan Rodgers’ side showing nothing of the defensive resilience or attacking threat that was evident in Monday’s draw at the Emirates.

It is a golden opportunity missed for the Reds to position themselves nicely ahead of a trip to Old Trafford after the international break, which now has a completely different complexion to it.

The comprehensive 3-0 loss – which saw the Hammers win on Merseyside for the first time since 1963 – leaves the Reds with seven points to show from their first four games this season.

Here is how social media reacted to the game:

‘Dublin Kopite’ on the forum:

[pull_quote_center]Really bad day around. Not good enough from a Liverpool team or manager. Need to improve fast[/pull_quote_center]

‘Red Forever’ on the forum:

[pull_quote_center]How much have we spent on strikers and defenders in the past few years? Yet we still can’t defend or score[/pull_quote_center]
