Liverpool “will be kicking themselves” as fans lament “extremely deflating” point

Liverpool couldn’t hit top gear in their 2-2 draw at Brighton on Sunday, but the majority of supporters were in the camp of it being two points thrown away.

The Reds faced a real banana skin at the Amex Stadium, coming up against one of the most-lauded teams in the Premier League currently.

Simon Adingra capitalised on some poor Liverpool play to fire home from distance, but against the run of the play, Mohamed Salah equalised in slick fashion.

The Egyptian King then buried a penalty shortly before half-time, as the game turned on its head despite a shaky performance from the visitors.

Lewis Dunk completed the scoring with time ticking away, but in truth, Jurgen Klopp‘s men were never worthy of all three points.

Here’s how some Liverpool fans assessed the draw on social media and in This Is Anfield’s comments section.


Some were frustrated at two points being dropped…

“No imagination at all. Playing like they’d had Sunday roast before the game.” – Jay Sangha on Facebook

“This is a top 4 team. Not a title contender. Not good enough defensively for that.” – Red_Arrows in the This Is Anfield comments


Others attempted a more positive view of the result…
