“You don’t win the league playing like that” – Liverpool fans react to 0-0 draw at Everton

Liverpool’s Premier League title hopes suffered a blow after they were held to a frustrating and potentially costly 0-0 draw at Goodison Park

Everton 0-0 Liverpool

Premier League, Goodison Park
March 3, 2018

Liverpool drew for the fourth time in six league games in a painfully frustrating afternoon at Goodison Park, suffering a significant blow in the title race.

Mohamed Salah failed to convert excellent chances in both halves, while the second-half performance was ragged as Liverpool constantly misplaced simple passes in the final third.

Poor decision-making and a lack of composure proved costly again, similar to last weekend’s goalless draw at Old Trafford.

Everton put in a determined display and could have snatched the victory as the players fed off the hostile atmosphere.

Here’s how Liverpool fans reacted to the performance.


Fans were highly critical of Salah’s poor performance…

“Is it only me who feels Salah has been awful lately?”

Gift Moyo on Facebook.

“He telegraphed that shot. So poor by Mo’s high standards.”

JMac8 on the forums.


Klopp’s choice of substitutes baffled many…

“Bringing on Milner over Shaqiri was laughable.”

Crickey Green on Facebook.


Van Dijk was one of the few to receive plaudits…


The familiar nature of the performance left many hugely frustrated…

“Our attacking limitations were horribly exposed there.”

SirBillShankly on the forums.

“How can we go from looking like world beaters on Wednesday to this just four days later?”

Rolf Harris on Facebook.


And the result leaves Liverpool’s title hopes hanging in the balance

“Simply not good enough if you want to win the title.”

Daniel Evans on Facebook.

“We won’t win the league playing like this.”
