“The worst game of the season” – Fans react to Liverpool’s 1-0 defeat to Southampton

Liverpool face a tough task to book their place at Wembley after suffering a 1-0 loss to Southampton in the first leg of the League Cup semi-finals.

The Reds produced a frustrating display as the Saints took an important lead in the first leg at St. Mary’s with a goal from Nathan Redmond.

Philippe Coutinho returned to the squad for the first time in over six weeks after picking up an ankle injury, and he was forced to come on as a substitute after 60 minutes as Liverpool searched for inspiration.

Daniel Sturridge retained his place up front but couldn’t provide an impact and Liverpool were struggling to mount any serious threat on goal.

Southampton had several chances to extend their lead but Loris Karius made some good saves and Dejan Lovren produced a last-ditch clearance to deny Redmond a second goal.

The loss of Joel Matip, Sadio Mane and Jordan Henderson was evident as the Reds had to settle for a 1-0 defeat following a poor performance.

Here’s the best of the reaction throughout the game on social media.
