“Good point following a poor spell” – Fans react to Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea

Liverpool bounced back from their FA Cup exit with an encouraging 1-1 draw against Chelsea at Anfield on Tuesday.

Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea

Premier League, Anfield
January 31, 2017

Goals: David Luiz 24′, Giorginio Wijnaldum 51′


Sadio Mane made the bench after returning from Africa Cup of Nations duty but Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi failed to make the starting XI.

Nathaniel Clyne was also passed fit despite not featuring in Liverpool’s two cup defeats against Southampton and Wolves.

Liverpool started off with intensity and direction in the opening stages but Thibaut Courtois was rarely troubled as Chelsea defended with solidity.

The Reds were dealt a blow when a controversial free-kick was put away superbly by Luiz after 24 minutes to give Chelsea the lead.

Fans were becoming frustrated as Liverpool lacked threat in attack but Wijnaldum’s goal shortly after the half-time break lifted them.

The Reds continued to search for a winner but Chelsea were awarded a penalty in the second-half which threatened to put the game to bed.

Simon Mignolet made up for his earlier error by producing a fine save to deny Diego Costa but Liverpool had to settle for a 1-1 draw despite an exciting final few minutes.

Here’s how supporters reacted to Liverpool’s 1-1 draw at home to Chelsea in Tuesday evening’s Premier League clash.


Chelsea’s controversial opening goal had fans fuming over Mignolet for the majority of the first half…


Roberto Firmino came under criticism and his early miss in the second-half didn’t help his case…




Mane’s introduction produced one of the biggest reactions…


But when Mignolet saved Diego Costa’s penalty fans were ecstatic…



Before the game many would have taken a draw but some couldn’t help feeling slightly disappointed at full-time…
