A dreadful afternoon on Tyneside saw the Reds deservedly beaten by a spirited Magpies side.

Barely any players were at the races from start to finish, with Christian Benteke, Lucas Leiva and James Milner all particularly poor on the day.

The defeat is Jurgen Klopp‘s first away from home since becoming Liverpool manager, and he will no doubt be seething with his side’s performance.

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

Benteke somehow missed from a yard out in the first-half, and supporters weren’t too impressed:

It was a very disappointing first-half performance from Liverpool, with fans showing their frustration at the interval:

Georginio Wijnaldum put Newcastle in front midway through the second-half. It did not go down well:

The 2-0 defeat represented one of the Reds’ worst performances of the season, and supporters rued the woefulness of the performance:

Frankly insipid performance. Benteke was an absolute waste of space, and on that performance (and frankly several others) looks to be a waste of an inordinate amount of money, with the occasional worldie not fair payment for repeatedly lazy performances.

I’m livid after that. What a fantastic opportunity to stake our claim in the league and we played like a bunch of utter muppets. More annoyed by that than Palace, even.
