After Liverpool’s title hopes were all but ended, defender Glen Johnson, took to Twitter to attack fans who criticised him as part of the defence that conceded a three-goal lead. “Absolutely clueless,” he wrote.

After being accused of levelling criticism at his team-mates or manager, Johnson clarified his remark by tweeting: “So many sofa experts in this game. Absolutely no idea about football what so ever #Jokers.”

Liverpool’s trial by social media did not end there.

Tottenham’s official club account shared a video mocking the Merseysiders’ slide from title favourites to rank outsiders, including footage of Steven Gerrard’s on-field rallying cry after the win against Manchester City at Anfield.

The tweet was subsequently deleted and London club said they were looking into a security breach of their Vine account and apologised for any offence caused.
