“Contender for the worst performance of the season” – Fans react to Swansea City 3-1 Liverpool

Liverpool slumped to a 3-1 defeat away to Swansea City on Sunday afternoon, providing scant reward for supporters travelling for the lunchtime kickoff.

Two goals from Andre Ayew and an excellent strike from Jack Cork sealed the three points and Premier League safety for the Swans, with Christian Benteke’s second-half header providing the Reds with a consolation.

Jurgen Klopp named a youthful lineup for the trip to the Liberty Stadium, with the likes of Danny Ward, Pedro Chirivella and Sheyi Ojo all included.

While the German clearly had one eye on Thursday night’s Europa League semi-final second leg at home to Villarreal, supporters were left disappointed with Liverpool’s efforts in south Wales.

Here’s how supporters saw Liverpool’s 3-1 defeat to Swansea.

Naturally, the overriding feeling was of disappointment, with a much-changed side proving too brittle for Francesco Guidolin’s hardworking side…

“Contender for the worst performance of the season.”

“What a dreadful performance. No composure on the ball, constant miss placed passes while the defence was all over the place and the midfield lacked any control whatsoever.”
lfc.8 on the forums.

Daniel Sturridge came under criticism for his performance, but many defended the striker after he headed for the tunnel immediately after full-time…



“Sturridge straight down the tunnel, not exactly endearing himself to the fans at the moment.”
Herb on the forums.

Sturridge will be hoping to start in Thursday night’s semi-final—a game that serves as supporters’ sole focus from now…

“On to Thursday. Can’t wait for the game!”
Hope in your heart on the forums.

“I’m confident Klopp will be able to get us moving in the right way next season but this isn’t the important game, three poor results in a row though we have to put that to a stop on Thursday.”
