Liverpool were the “joke of the day” in the world of Twitter world on Sunday, as the Merseysiders suffered an embarrassing 3-2 defeat to Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium.
Jurgen Klopp’s men were coasting comfortably with a 2-0 lead in the game before they decided to hit the “self-destruct” button in the second-half. Individual defensive errors from the Reds allowed the Saints to crawl back into the game in as they scored three second-half goals to claim all three points.
Liverpool fans are well advised to avoid Twitter for a day or two:

15 – Liverpool have dropped the most points from leading positions in the Premier League this season (15). Careless.

There’s a difference between being ‘obsessed with liverpool’ and ‘enjoying rustling their fan base’. I do the latter and succeed every time.

Congratulations to Liverpool who have squandered a 2-0 lead to be behind 3-2 to Southampton. Unbelievable capitulation. That’s going some.
