It would be safe to say that Victor Moses hasn’t exactly endeared himself to the Liverpool fans this season. But having come on as a substitute in the midst of the Merseysiders’ late collapse at Selhurst Park last night, the opportunity to keep the club’s title hopes alive was presented to the Nigerian international.
In the 94th minute, the ball bounced to Moses in front of an open goal. This is what happened next…
With the match ending in a draw, Liverpool fans inevitably vented their frustrations about the miss on Twitter after the game.
Honestly Victor Moses is a lunatic. I could have put a card board cut out of Heskey and even he would have scored. bloody hell — #YNWA #Anfield (@KhanTheLegacy) May 6, 2014

Victor Moses, what he said: ‘When i joined them i knew they’ll win the league.’ What he meant: ‘So i am sent here to stop them.’ — Parlx (@MrChelseaa) May 6, 2014
That Victor Moses miss has made me literally hate him. With a burning passion. — Jack Widnell (@jackwfootball) May 5, 2014
Suarez isn’t crying about the defence. He’s eyes are just burning from seeing that Moses miss. Outrageous. — PROJECT LFC (@LiamProjectLFC) May 5, 2014
Although there is the chance that Manchester City could slip up, there is the sense that Liverpool's title aspirations for this season have died with Moses' miskick.
