‘League has slipped’ – These Liverpool fans react as side ‘bottled’ chances to win in draw against Newcastle

Posted by

Some Liverpool fans are absolutely disgusted with the team’s performance after they ‘bottled’ plenty of chances to beat Newcastle in tonight’s Premier League tie which ended as a goalless draw.

The Reds dominated the ball with a massive 74% of possession, but for all that they only had three more total shots than their opponents – as well as only having two more shots on target than the Magpies.

It was a scrappy game that saw three of Jurgen Klopp’s men yellow carded. Overall, the side’s rare lack of clinical finishing cost them three points tonight – with all respect to Newcastle’s valiant effort.

The chance of the game fell to Roberto Firmino, the Brazilian somehow missed the back of the net from just a couple of yards out as he steered a free header in front of a gaping goal wide of the post.

Thiago Alcantara was one of few positives for the reigning Premier League champions on the night, the ace returned from injury in the 73rd minute and showed his playmaking quality with attacking intent.

Here’s how some of the Liverpool faithful have reacted to the team’s performance:

Mohamed Salah also couldn’t hit the back of the net after a couple of fairly clear-cut chances, the Reds dominated but didn’t really look like they’d score unless it was for a stroke of luck due to their finishing.

With tonight’s share of the spoils following on from another frustrating draw against West Bromwich Albion, the Reds now just sit three points clear at the top of the table.

Heated rivals Manchester United could equal the Anfield outfit’s points tally if they were to win their game in hand – whenever that is played.

Fortunately, Liverpool have the best man in the world at the helm after two disappointing results in Jurgen Klopp, the German can no doubt rally the Reds to be ruthless once more.
