“We look dead on our legs”, “Still in our hands” – Fans react to Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool

Liverpool looked jaded as they lost 1-0 at Chelsea on Sunday, as the Premier League top-four battle goes to the final day of the season.

Chelsea 1–0 Liverpool

Premier League, Stamford Bridge
May 6, 2018

Goal: Giroud 32′

A dog of a game at Stamford Bridge was separated by a first-half header by Olivier Giroud, with the Reds never remotely close to their best.

The huge effort in Rome on Wednesday night clearly took its toll on the players, and they were lethargic throughout in west London.

It means only a win at home to Brighton next Sunday will secure a place in the top four, which could lead to a nervy afternoon at Anfield.

Here’s how Liverpool fans reacted to the limp 1-0 defeat to Chelsea across social media and on our forums.


It was plain to see that Jurgen Klopp’s players were fatigued…

“I had confidence we would beat WBA and Stoke but we look dead on our legs.”

Molby39 on the forums.

“That was truly awful… the team looks so exhausted… especially Salah… well we need to get the job done against Brighton… lets hope Huddersfield beat Chelsea. Keep the faith Reds – YNWA.”

Nabhan Hashim Shiraz on Facebook.


Some were still scathing of the performance, however…

“Pathetic. Absolutely pathetic. Worst time to lose momentum too.”

Jon Gates on Facebook.


But there was still an air positivity, with many quick to point out that top four is still very much in Liverpool’s hands…

“Best chance of top four is to beat Brighton. Brighton. At Anfield.”
