“Too many missed chances,” “adequate point” – Liverpool fans react to frustrating draw at Southampton

Liverpool were held to a frustrating 0-0 draw against Southampton at St Mary’s in which Jurgen Klopp‘s side dominated for most of the game.

Adam Lallana was forced to sit out after picking up a minor groin injury during England’s 2-2 draw against Spain on Tuesday evening but Philippe Coutinho was a surprise addition in the starting XI after he was also an injury doubt prior to the fixture.

Liverpool’s best chance of the first-half came after half an hour from Sadio Mane but he was denied by an excellent save from Southampton‘s Fraser Forster. It was a fairly quiet opening 45 minutes though and the two teams went into the break goalless.

Coutinho had an excellent chance to take the lead early into the second half but Southampton‘s centre-backs were terrific the entire game and a last ditch tackle from Jose Fonte prevented the Brazilian from scoring.

Further chances from Emre Can and Roberto Firmino were also thrown away as the hosts continued to defend with solidity.

Daniel Sturridge eventually came on as a substitute and almost made an immediate impact, setting up Nathaniel Clyne but Liverpool were unable to break the deadlock and the game ended in a disappointing 0-0 draw.

Here is a selection of the best reactions in the story of the game.

Fans were surprised to see Coutinho in the starting line-up, while Daniel Sturridge remained on the bench.

It was an underwhelming first-half but fans urged the team to find a way through.

Fans were becoming impatient in the second-half and couldn’t believe it when Firmino missed a sitter.


It took 77 minutes for Jurgen Klopp to make his first substitution – bringing on Sturridge for Can.

In the end, Liverpool wasted an opportunity to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table and it was frustrating for fans as the game ended 0-0.
