Fans were quick to tease Liverpool as they fell behind to LASK in their opening Europa League match.
The Reds could only muster a fifth-placed finish in the Premier League last season and are playing in the secondary European club competition as a result.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are one of the favourites to go all the way in the competition, with their last appearance in the final coming in 2016.
A trip to Austria, live on talkSPORT 2, has been first on the agenda for their European campaign but the first half was far from ideal.
Florian Flecker put LASK into the lead with a thumping strike from the edge of the area, leaving Liverpool shocked.
Rival fans of the Reds were on hand to rub it in, with one taking to X to say: “Liverpool losing. Maybe they just want to win the Conference League instead.”
“Looks like Liverpool have found their level. Conference league,” added an amused second.
A third said: “I’m not sure Liverpool’s squad is strong enough to juggle EPL and The Europa. I think the Conference League may have been a better fit for them?”
LASK’s goal also means that Liverpool have kept just one clean sheet in their last eight games across all competitions.
Klopp made 11 changes to his starting XI from the win over Wolves at the weekend, a decision he could go on to regret if they lose.
