“No creativity”, “Can history repeat itself?” – Liverpool fans react to 2-1 defeat to PSG

A 2-1 defeat to PSG leaves Liverpool needing to beat Napoli by a two-goal margin at Anfield in order to avoid a group stage exit from the Champions League.

PSG 2-1 Liverpool

Champions League Group Stage (5), Parc des Princes
November 28, 2018

Goals: Bernat 13′, Neymar 37′; Milner pen 45+1′

The Reds arrived in Paris needing a victory to effectively ensure progress to the last 16 of Europe’s top-tier tournament, but leave having suffered a humbling loss.

Goals from Juan Bernat and Neymar saw the hosts take a comfortable lead in the first half, only for James Milner to claw one back from the penalty spot.

The referee’s initial call for the spot-kick was for a corner, and Szymon Marciniak struggled throughout the night—including showing a yellow for a red-card foul on Joe Gomez from Marco Verratti.

But regardless, PSG were the better side at the Parc des Princes, and here’s how Liverpool fans vented their frustrations on Facebook, Twitter and our forums.


Fans were far from pleased with the midfield trio of Henderson, Wijnaldum and Milner…

“Get Henderson and Gini off and bring some creativity on. They’re both getting bypassed.”

Gareth Roberts on Facebook.

“The midfield just isn’t up to it at this level.”

Alisson was one of the few who performed well…


The referee was appalling…

“At least the assistant is actually watching the game, unlike the referee…”

Vincent Chow on Facebook.

“How on earth did Verratti not get a red card in that game?”

Bob8 on the forums.


Neymar’s theatrics left many unimpressed…


Liverpool were far too slow and lacked creativity…

“No real creativity in such a workmanlike midfield.”

Derek Duvall on Facebook.

“Mane and Salah tried but they didn’t have much creativity to feed off.”

Liverpool have it all to do to stay in the Champions League now…

“Liverpool 3-1 Napoli…we can do this!”

Adon Andrews on Facebook.
