Garcia, Gomez and more: Twitter reacts as Liverpool draw with Southampton
Luis Garcia and Joe Gomez take to Twitter after Liverpool are denied a first win under Jurgen Klopp at Anfield
Saido Mane denied Jurgen Klopp his first win as Liverpool manager after a 1-1 draw at Anfield.
Substitute Christian Benteke looked to have powered the home side to three points after a thunderous header in the 77th minute edged Liverpool ahead.
However, Mane capitalised on confusion in the Reds’s defence to salvage a point for the Saints before the Senegal forward was sent off in added time.
Here is a selection of the best Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order to a disappointing result for Klopp’s side.
