Roberto Firmino summed up Liverpool's season with his dramatic reaction to Joe Willock's last-gasp equaliser for Newcastle on Saturday.
Virgil van Dijk side side ended the weekend four points behind fourth-placed Chelsea going into the final five games of their Champions League campaign.
Mohamed Salah's early goal put the Reds on course for what would have been a crucial victory in the race to secure Jurgen Klopp's qualification for next season.
But Liverpool failed to take any further chances, and on-loan Arsenal man Willock dashed their hopes of three points when he scored in the fifth minute of injury time to boost the Magpies' survival bid.
And the way Firmino reacted to Willock's leveller perfectly encapsulated the frustration his side have suffered this season.
As Willock beat a lunging Fabinho to ball to poke home in the dying minutes, Fabinho simply fell flat on his back in despair.
It was the second time in as many games Liverpool had dropped two points late on, after Diego Llorente's 87th-minute equaliser for Leeds United last Monday also dealt a blow to their top-four hopes.
An exasperated Salah could also be seen throwing his arms up in the air after Willock's goal as footage of the Reds players' reactions was shared on Twitter.
And the video drew a huge reaction from fans, with some highlighting Liverpool's soft centre in the absence of Virgil van Dijk, while others pointed the finger at the forwards for failing to take their chances both at Anfield on Saturday and throughout the season as a whole.
"Last season our defenders wouldn’t concede 2 95th minute equalisers to Newcastle United, because they had VVD covering how bad they are," wrote on fan on Twitter.
Another posted: "We all just knew it we were going to blow it… every team fancy their chances against us towards the end as we are so nervous
And another wrote: "Maybe if he and everyone else in the team outside of salah could of found the back of the net more than about 4 times this season this wouldn’t of really mattered."
Many fans defended Firmino, with one pointing out that he had created several chances for his team-mates.
"Bobby was playing 10 and set up Mané, Salah and Jota for 4 major chances. Only had 2 shots, both from outside the area," the supporter wrote.
Another hailed the Brazilian's reaction, tweeting: "And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why I love Bobby. My blood boils when people disrespect him."
