Jamie Carragher was left in shock at what Liverpool did seconds before the final whistle against West Brom, saying he “cannot believe” it on commentary.
The former Reds defender was in the gantry to watch his former side concede a 1-1 draw at Anfield to the relegation battlers.
Jurgen Klopp’s side had taken the lead in the first half through Sadio Mane’s close-distance strike before Semi Ajayi headed bounced in off the post with eight minutes to go.
But the Premier League champions did not stop pushing, eventually earning the chance of securing a winner in the last play of the game.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain saw his cross get blocked by Baggies star Matt Phillips and bounce out for a corner kick.
With the Reds stars getting into the box for a last set piece, the Englishman strolled up to the corner to get the move going.
But the substitute decided to play a low cross that was blocked by the first defender, leading referee Kevin Friend to end the game.
And this brought a furious reaction from Carragher, who interrupted his colleague to say: “I cannot believe he has just done that.”
The former defender was not the only one left frustrated, though, as the Anfield faithful were left baffled at the decision.
“That short corner has p***ed me off,” one supporter said.
Another commented: “Waste of a corner. We should have had this game dead and buried.”
While a third could not contain their fury, writing: “I honestly don’t know what Trent [Alexander-Arnold] and Ox were thinking with that corner.”
And a fourth simply added: “Christ, no brain.”
Klopp was also left feeling frustrated after missing out on two points at Anfield, meaning his side remain three points clear at the top of the table.
He said after the game: “It’s an incredible challenge to stay active and lively when you constantly face 10 men.
“To be fair, West Brom did that for 90 minutes. We were 1-0 up and it didn’t change a bit.
“West Brom deserved the point because we didn’t make enough clear-cut chances.”
