“This is what we do season after season” – Fans react to Swansea City 1-0 Liverpool

Liverpool’s 18-game unbeaten run came to an end as they suffered a 1-0 defeat away to bottom-placed Swansea City on Monday night.

Swansea City 1-0 Liverpool

Premier League, Liberty Stadium
January 22, 2018

Goal: Mawson 40′

Jurgen Klopp made just one change to the side which beat Man City as Virgil van Dijk made his Premier League debut, replacing Dejan Lovren.

Emre Can was handed the captain’s armband with both Jordan Henderson and James Milner sitting out, becoming the Reds’ latest stand-in leader.

But it was bottom-of-the-table Swansea who dealt the first blow when Alfie Mawson took advantage of some sloppy defending at a set-piece.

Liverpool lacked creativity all game and it was a poor performance from Klopp’s side as they slumped to a disappointing 1-0 defeat just a week after beating the league leaders.

Here are all the reactions from supporters following the defeat…


Everybody was excited to see Van Dijk play alongside Can as captain but fans were mixed on their displays…



Fans were quick to point out that Liverpool lacked creativity in midfield in the absence of Coutinho…



And it was no surprise that supporters were extremely frustrated at full-time after a terrible performance…

“Atrocious performance. Every pass underhit, overhit, or hit to a Swansea player. What a way to follow up the biggest win of the season…”

James White on Facebook.


“The players should be ashamed.”

Outstanding character on the forums.

“We had chances which we didn’t take. It always comes back to bite us.”

“We won’t ever win the league because the inconsistencies are rife with Liverpool.”

Liam Hanson on Facebook.

“What’s the team been doing for eight days in training?”

Firmino’s Teeth on the forums.

“I turned it off. I couldn’t watch. We looked like a relegation side today. Very poor and once again disappointing from us.”
