It was yet another horrible away performance from the Reds, following equally insipid recent defeats at Newcastle and Watford.

Jurgen Klopp‘s side simply never got going at any point, with headed efforts from Michail Antonio and Andy Carroll earning the hosts all three points.

There is a real lack of fighting spirit among many of the current Liverpool players, and unless things improve drastically, there is no chance of a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.

Here is how social media reacted to the game:

Fans gave their thoughts on the team news prior to the game, with some concern voiced about the lack of experience and quality on the bench:

Very poor performances from Benteke, Coutinho, Firmino, Lucas and Clyne. Particularly the first three. Totally gutless in general. When will we learn to put a decent cross into the box?

Klopp must be scratching his head at the toothless displays we keep putting out. We desperately need one of our other strikers fit and firing.

First league double over us by West Ham since the 62-63 season. So much work needed.
