Spartak Moscow 1-1 Liverpool: Reds held to another frustrating Champions League draw [Best Tweets]

Liverpool are still looking for their first Champions League win of the season after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Spartak Moscow at Otkrytiye Arena on Tuesday.

After the brief highs of Saturday, the September frustrations continued for Jurgen Klopp and co. on Tuesday as they played out yet another draw, this time against Spartak Moscow. The hosts grabbed the lead from a Fernando free-kick midway through the first-half.

But Philippe Coutinho, who was guilty of giving away the free-kick recklessly made amends at the half-hour mark as he equalised for the Reds with his first Champions League goal. Thereafter though, it was a night of close calls for the visitors as it remained all square even as they dominated the proceedings.

Post the match, Klopp expressed his frustrations at his players not being clinical enough on the night. But the Liverpool boss was at the receiving end of fans’ ire after yet another disappointing result, while the rivals got a laugh at his expense.

Klopp was also slammed for his decision to start Loris Karius in place of Simon Mignolet, picking out the German goalkeeper for his effort (or lack of it) in the opening goal.

But, it wasn’t all doom and gloom for Liverpool as Philippe Coutinho seems to be winning back the fans after another solid performance.
