Jurgen Klopps side served up a drab display on the south coast as they were beaten by relegation-threatened Bournemouth.
Philip Billings first-half goal was enough to see off the Reds as they missed the chance to go into the top four, and several players seemed to slip back into bad habits after a more successful recent few weeks.
Liverpool fans had their say on the performance across social media.
There have been a few false dawns this season, and it wasnt lost on fans:
This is what it’s like to be in a top 4 race, rather than a title race. Always one step forward, two steps back. Just have to keep grinding. We’ve not learned anything new about this team or what needs to happen in the summer today.
