Liverpool’s Premier League title challenge took another small hit on Monday night as they were held to a 1-1 draw by West Ham United at the London Stadium.
Sadio Mane sent Liverpool ahead in the 22nd minute, but Michail Antonio levelled the scores just six minutes later and that was how it finished on the night.
It was a poor performance from Liverpool and despite the fact that they are three points clear at the summit, Manchester City will have been encouraged again.
Roberto Firmino was amongst the Liverpool players to find it difficult against the Hammers, with the Brazilian replaced for the final 15 minutes.
And it would be fair to say that a number of Liverpool fans were disappointed with what they saw from the attacker on the night.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
Firmino with arguably his worst performance.

Did Firmino actually have a positive touch of the football today? Poor scuffed shot in the first half and a hatful of missed passes. We seem incredibly poor when he has a bad game, which has happened a lot lately. #LFC

A poor night from everyone. Never seen Firmino have a game like that. Hopefully they’ll be back on it for the next game.

I thought Keita had one of his better games tonight. Mané gave it his all. Firmino was woeful. Salah was snuffed out. Lallana did ok as did Fabinho

Even those they replaced were offering nothing. Firmino was dreadful and Lallana was just Lallana.

Firmino was terrible.

Possibly Firmino’s worst game in a Liverpool shirt, gave the ball away on countless attacks. Need to see more from him. Salah largely anonymous

How bad was Firmino in that second half, he was even worse than Keita in the 1st half #LFC
