Quite how the Reds didn’t win that is a mystery, but once again it was the hapless Simon Mignolet who helped gift Sunderland a point.

Liverpool were cruising at 2-0, following goals from Roberto Firmino and Adam Lallana, but Adam Johnson’s tame free-kick crept past Mignolet with nine minutes left.

Jermain Defore scored with a couple of minutes remaining, as Jurgen Klopp‘s side once again paid the price for a lack of ruthlessness.

It was a match that will be remembered as much for what happened in the stands as on the pitch, following the much-discussed walk-out after 77 minutes.

There were black flags out in force at Anfield, in reaction to the news of Liverpool’s extortionate ticket prices next season:

It was a drab goalless first-half on Merseyside, and supporters bemoaned both the Reds’ continued injury woes and the performance:

Firmino and Lallana both scored to seemingly seal victory in the second-half, with the Brazilian running the show:

The rumoured walk out came to fruition after 77 minutes:

Fans were left fuming after the game, particularly with Mignolet, after yet another capitulation:

Imgoingred on the forum:

Well that was a bottle job and a half. Only positive is Firmino scoring 1 and creating 1.

Redsi73 on the forum:

Not good enough. Totally pathetic first half, followed by an 8min capitulation at the end of the game.
