The Reds drew 1-1 with Newcastle on Saturday, with late drama as VAR disallowed an injury time equaliser for the Magpies before Arsenal loanee Joe Willock actually did bring Steve Bruce's side equal in the dying seconds.
After the encounter, Liverpool supporters couldn't actually believe the position their team, the reigning Premier League champions, had got themselves into.
Jurgen Klopp and co. currently sit in sixth place in the table, a point behind fourth-placed Chelsea - although the Blues have a game in hand. Fifth-placed West Ham also have a game still to play, and local rivals Everton are just two points behind and are yet another team with a game in hand.
This has had supporters panicking that they might end up in the Europa League next season, and some can't quite believe that a squad with Liverpool's talent could be playing on Thursday nights.
Many posted their shock on Twitter after the match with Newcastle...

Liverpool have a huge match against Manchester United up next, before an easier run against Southampton, West Brom, Burnley, and Crystal Palace to end the campaign.
However, with their form and those teams possibly still scrapping against relegation, there is the chance for slip ups.
