“Last thing we needed,” “January will be tougher” – Fans react to 0-0 draw against Plymouth

Liverpool’s youthful side weren’t able to breakdown Plymouth Argyle as they were held to a disappointing 0-0 draw at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp named the youngest ever starting XI for the Reds as Ben Woodburn, Sheyi Ojo, Trent-Alexander-Arnold, Ovie Ejaria and Joe Gomez all featured.

Gomez made his return after a 15-month absence, playing as a right centre half while Ojo made his first start since October 2015 as part of an attacking three.

Liverpool dominated the first half as Plymouth sat back and invited pressure but the young guns couldn’t break them down and the two teams went into the break level.

Despite having 80% of the possession, Liverpool needed a spark and Klopp turned to Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Adam Lallana in the later stages.

However, the star trio weren’t able to produce a goal and Liverpool had to settle for a disappointing 0-0 draw despite a dominant performance.

Here are all the best reactions from fans on social media throughout the game:

There was excitement when Gomez and Ojo were named in the starting XI…
