Liverpool’s dismal 1-0 defeat at the hands of Hull City continued their poor run of form and seriously damaged their faint hopes of Champions League qualification, causing quite a stir on Twitter.

(Video) Hull City 1-0 Liverpool Premier League highlights: Michael Dawson goal all but ends Reds Champions League dream
A Michael Dawson effort in the first period proved to be the winner, making it three games without a win for Brendan Rodgers’ men.
The Merseyside outfit, looking to bounce back from the FA Cup semi-final exit against Aston Villa and the 0-0 Premier League draw at West Bromwich Albion, saw plenty of the ball but failed to punish their well-organised opponents.
The outcome piled the pressure on Rodgers, whose side sit seven points behind the Champions League qualification places in fifth position.
Here is how Twitter reacted to the defeat:
Where’s the inspiration from Brendan Rodgers? Really hate to call his future into question, but he’s not helping himself at all.
