Face-palm.

It was the moment Liverpool fans had been waiting for – an opportunity for Adam Lallana to score when Roberto Firmino got behind the defence to tee him up.

But unfortunately, the Reds midfielder wrongly assumed he was offside and missed his kick.

And fans couldn’t believe their eyes:

Spare a thought for poor Firmino, who started celebrating, only to find out it there was no goal:

In the end, Manchester City and Liverpool had to settle for a point each in their battle for Champions League qualification after a 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium.

But we bet Jurgen Klopp’s side will look back on Lallana’s chance with a tinge of regret.
