“Unforgivable”, “Pathetic”, “Absolutely appalling” – Fans react to Liverpool 0-0 Southampton

Liverpool’s hopes of qualifying for the Champions League were dented following a lacklustre performance in their 0-0 draw with Southampton.

Liverpool 0-0 Southampton

Premier League, Anfield
May 7, 2017

Philippe Coutinho was named in the starting lineup despite being forced to leave the field after just 12 minutes against Watford on Monday evening.

There was only a place on the substitutes’ bench for Adam Lallana though, as he continues to recover his match fitness following a thigh injury.

It was a quiet first half as both teams struggled to get a foothold in the game and there were very few chances created from either side.

The second half started in much the same fashion but a penalty kick awarded in the 65th minute gave Liverpool fans some hope.

James Milner has scored seven goals from the spot this season but he couldn’t add to his tally and Liverpool were forced to give it all they had for another half-hour.

Lallana and Daniel Sturridge were introduced shortly afterwards as the Reds pushed on in search for the winner.

Sturridge looked bright and started to cause problems for the Saints but he was unable to break the deadlock and the hosts had to settle for a disappointing 0-0 draw.

Here are all the best reactions from Liverpool supporters on social media throughout the game.


Fans were relieved to see Coutinho named in the starting lineup but were shocked not to see Lallana…

“If Lallana could play 60 minutes last week, I cannot understand why he is not starting today”

Sturridge looked threatening but it ended 0-0 and fans were left feeling hugely disappointed…
