(Tweets) Fan reactions claim Liverpool walkout cost them three points vs Sunderland

A good number of Liverpool fans carried out their threat to stage a mass walkout during Saturday’s game with strugglers Sunderland, and when they left in the 77th minute, two goals to the good, they likely thought they’d made their point and bagged three points in the process.

However, that wasn’t to be, as Sunderland staged a dramatic late fightback to rescue a point for themselves and frustrate their hosts.

And though their cause is a good one (protesting the £77 ticket prices for the new stand next season) many took to Twitter to blame the walkout on their late collapse.

The Reds lost momentum after the fans left their seats, and the drab atmosphere is believed to have contributed to Adam Johnson and Jermaine Defoe getting the better of Simon Mignolet.
