“Deflated,” “Lacked belief and conviction” – Liverpool fans react to draw at West Ham

A lacklustre Liverpool performance saw another two points dropped, and fans were left frustrated with another setback in the title race.

West Ham 1-1 Liverpool

Premier League, London Stadium
February 4, 2018

Goals: Antonio 28′; Mane 22′

The Reds endured a frustrating evening at the London Stadium as sloppiness reigned supreme for Jurgen Klopp‘s men.

Sadio Mane edged Liverpool into the lead against the run of play, but it was to be a rare moment of quality from the Reds as a performance lacking a cutting edge followed against a plucky West Ham outfit.

The home side soon found themselves level through Michail Antonio as the Reds’ defence was found wanting from a set-piece for the second game running, ensuring another two points were dropped.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the result on social media and our forums.


Mane opened the scoring and was one of the few standouts on the night…


The midfield struggled to assert themselves on proceedings in the absence of a number of key players…

”Our midfield is where?”
Noo Noo on the forums.

“Can’t remember too many games without both Hendo and Gini and it’s showing. No control in midfield whatsoever. We need to lift our level.” – Clive on the forums.


With only one clean sheet in the last seven games, the defence came under question from fans…


And there was a mixed response at the result as some voiced their frustrations and questioned how the Reds will respond, while some looked for the positives…

“Still in our hands…the pressure of playing after City has proven greater… Injuries not doing us any favours….still in our hands, maybe this is the wake up call we needed heading into 3 crucial weeks for us…” – Njabulo Cele on Facebook.
