Liverpool fans react to dreadful result vs. Sunderland

Liverpool have handed Chelsea a massive boost to their title ambitions with a poor result away to Sunderland.

A Jermain Defoe penalty double means the Reds start 2017 in a way they wouldn’t have liked, just days after ending 2016 in perfect fashion with a win against Manchester City.

Goalscoring hasn’t been a problem for Klopp’s side this season but again they’ve shipped too many goals at the back and now must wonder if they’ve been knocked out of the Premier League title race for good.

The draw means Chelsea can now move 8 points clear of the Anfield club if they win their match against Spurs on Wednesday night.

It was all going so well when Daniel Sturridge nodded home a poacher’s header to give them the lead at the Stadium of Light but Sunderland are fighting for their lives at the bottom of the table and were never going to give this one up without a fight.

Sadio Mane looked to have given the Reds victory with a 72nd minute goal but again Defoe was their to break hearts, slotting home his second penalty of the afternoon with just 6 minutes remaining.

It’s a result devastating to Liverpool fans who have seen their team pick up big results against elite clubs, before performing badly against the weaker teams in the division time and again.

Supporters took to Twitter to share their frustration and it wasn’t pretty…
