The gods of football assigned six goals to Liverpool this week, they chose to score it all against Southampton. Who is to blame? #SSFootball

A big banana skin, we duly obliged & slipped on it. Looked and felt like a home performance. Newcastle were excellent. Reality check… #LFC

It also provided a chance for rival club fans to take a dig and even a conspiracy theory…
We’ve drawn 0-0 in 5/9 games, yet Liverpool have still managed to go 3 points further behind us in their ‘title challenger’ form. ?Y a Georgie (@FutbolSloth) December 6, 2015
All part of the cunning plan. Chelsea now 2 points off relegation. #LFC

But in the end Liverpool fans do realize that it’s one blimp in an otherwise good period.
Just one of those days, that. Not a great game but nothing another good run of results won’t fix. #LFC
