Southampton knock Liverpool out of EFL Cup, book themselves a place in the finals [Best Tweets]

Liverpool had to overcome a one-goal deficit as they hosted Southampton in the second-leg of the EFL Cup semi-finals at Anfield. But, it was another frustrating night for Klopp and his men as they were unable to put the ball in the back of the net once more against Southampton.

And Shane Long delivered the killer blow towards the end of the game with a brilliant counter-attacking goal, one that secured a finals berth for the Saints while confirming Liverpool’s exit from the competition.

Liverpool’s performance was ridiculed on Twitter as fans took to the social media platform to air their frustration on the recent run of poor results, a dreadful January indeed.

Some people though did not fail to point out Liverpool’s inability to beat Southampton after their recent raids on them for their players.

Sadio Mane’s absence has been telling and the same was again pointed out.

There were some very cheeky tweets, though, with people pointing out the coinciding timing between Gerrard’s return to the club and Liverpool’s current poor run

Liverpool would be raring for Mane to return to the squad but must do without the former Southampton man as they face a crucial few fixtures up ahead.
