“Second half capitulation is unforgivable” – Fans react to Sevilla 3-3 Liverpool

Liverpool blew a three-goal half-tiime lead to draw 3-3 with Sevilla on Tuesday night, and Reds supporters were left furious after a spineless second-half performance.

Sevilla 3-3 Liverpool

Champions League, Anfield
November 21, 2017

Goals: Firmino (2′ & 30), Mane (22′); Ben Yedder (51′ & 60′), Pizarro (90′)

Roberto Firmino got Liverpool off to a perfect start with just 88 seconds played, and Sadio Mane‘s sublime header made it 2-0 shortly after.

Firmino’s second of the night made it three before the interval, and it looked as though Jurgen Klopp‘s were cruising towards Champions League knockout stage qualification.

However, Sevilla produced a spirited comeback with two Ben Yedder goals, with plenty of help from Alberto Moreno, made it 3-2.

Just as it looked as though Liverpool had held on, Guido Pizarro equalised in the 93rd minute to earn the hosts the most unlikely point.

Here’s how supporters reacted to Liverpool’s draw against the La Liga outfit on Facebook, Twitter and our forums.


Klopp made just one change to the side that beat Southampton 3-0 on Saturday, with Emre Can once again left on the substitutes’ bench……

“Aggressive by Klopp. I thought Can would come in to add some muscle in midfield away from home. But looks like Klopp is going for it.”

Bilal Zaidi on Facebook:


Firmino finished from a tight angle with kick-off still fresh in supporters’ memories……

“That’ll do nicely ….. get in Bobby!”

Loris Karius made a superb save to deny former Man City winger Nolito, and supporters were left impressed……


Mane doubled the lead, as Liverpool scored from a corner yet again. It hasn’t been their strong point for a long time……

“2 goals from a corner. Thought I was watching Liverpool?”

It was soon 3-0, and the fans were in dreamland……

“Where are all the Firmino haters now?!!! Great team effort!!!!!”

Wai Chung Kan on Facebook.


Ben Yedder pulled a goal back, and supporters were left unimpressed by the foul Moreno committed in the lead-up to the goal……


Moreno then conceded a penalty which Ben Yedder scored, as the Spaniard lost his head at his former ground……


Pizarro’s late strike caused much anger, as Liverpool threw away two points in rather pathetic fashion……

“Feels like a loss this. Can’t believe how naive we were in the second half. Didn’t calm it all down and encouraged them to come on. Kept Moreno on too long and stopped pressing in midfield.”

theres always tomorrow on our forums.
