Video: Liverpool fans get soaked by faulty sprinkler at Anfield

Anfield Pitch

At 1-0 down at half-time, this soaking was the last thing these Liverpool supporters needed or wanted.

Whether you support Liverpool or not, spare a though for these poor fans who got more than they bargained for at Anfield yesterday.

Already coming to terms with another impotent first half performance, 1-0 down to a visiting Newcastle United, these supporters will have wished they nipped out for a half-time pie or refreshment.

Instead they got blitzed by a faulty pitchside sprinkler which turned itself on by mistake, pointing in their direction.

It was a freezing night as well which only made it that much worse- the look on some of the fans' faces tells its own story.
