Liverpool were held to an unfortunate 2-2 draw by Sunderland at the Stadium of Light thanks to two penalty decisions in favour of the Black Cats.
And, the Liverpool faithfuls vented their frustration out on the popular social media platform, Twitter, lamenting the Reds’ failure to secure results against weaker oppositions.
Arsenal, Chelsea, United and City: 10/12 points
Burnley, Bournemouth, West Ham and Sunderland: 2/12 points

Only Liverpool can take maximum points vs Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton and City but drop them vs Burnley, Bournemouth, West Ham & Sunderland.

Beat Man City & draw to the worst team in the league in the space of 2 days.
Is there anything more Liverpool?
— Jurgen Klopp (@ItsJurgenKlopp) January 2, 2017
Beating Man City on the Saturday then drawing with Sunderland on the Monday is the most Liverpool thing ever.
We go again.

Liverpool and the tendency to be mediocre is something to worry about #SUNLIV

People also had something to say about Jermain Defoe, who converted both the spot-kicks.
No matter what team you support, if you enjoy football you have to respect Defoe. Proper striker.

30 – Jermain Defoe has just spent 30 minutes in physio after carrying ten players by himself for an entire match again. Vital.

If Jermain Defoe leaves Sunderland in January… pic.twitter.com/1M2aEAIein

Remember when Dick Advocaat said Defoe couldn’t play up top on his own and stuck him on the left wing

And, the trolls were out on full force, along with some supporters of the other clubs, as Liverpool dropped points.
Games won in 2017.
LFC small club.
