Liverpool suffered an evening of frustration as they were beaten by Burnley on Thursday night.
Ashley Barnes scored the only goal from the spot seven minutes from the time as the Reds saw their 68-game unbeaten home league run ended with a dismal 1-0 defeat.
The result means Jurgen Klopp’s side are now six points off the Premier League leaders and haven't scored in their last four top-flight games.
But there was plenty that went unnoticed or under the radar during the 90 minutes at Anfield.
Dean irks Alisson
Anfield was afforded the rare treat of only the third sighting of legendary whistle-blower Mike Dean in charge of a match at the venue.
The most recent previous occasion, against Sheffield United in October, saw a controversial spot kick awarded to the visitors.
And while there couldn't really be that much complaint about Burnley's winner, that didn't stop Alisson Becker having to be held back by Jurgen Klopp on the final whistle having remonstrates with the referee.
To be fair, Tranmere Rovers' most famous fan can have that effect on people.
Matip gotta Matip
A rare positive for Liverpool on a dire night was the return of Joel Matip.
The defender has become something of a cult figure with his, shall we say, unique mannerisms that have even inspired a Twitter account.
And the Cameroonian was at it again when, after Fabinho and Ashley Barnes tangled on the half-time whistle, he remonstrated with the Burnley man in trademark flamboyant style by flapping his long arms towards the stricken clodhopper.
Never change, Joel.
Klopp isn't moved
Only 13 minutes had elapsed when the first sign came that matters weren't going to plan for Liverpool.
"Movement!" boomed Jurgen Klopp from the touchline as another Reds attack floundered before managing to get anywhere.
The Liverpool boss cut a frustrated figure for much of the 90 minutes.
And that perhaps contributed to his half-time disagreement with Burnley boss Sean Dyche which was captured by the cameras for posterity.

Any chance, lino?
The implementation of the offside rule has been a subject of heated debate ever since it was first introduced in the 19th Century.
And the latest iteration is causing plenty of head-scratching, not least with the late raising of the flag no matter how obvious the decision.

Several times in the first half, Liverpool defenders needed to intervene before Burnley were correctly flagged offside, prompting increasing anger among the home players and coaching staff.
Did Burnley take heart from the misconception they were regularly getting in behind the Reds defence? Did the home side become worried as a consequence? These are questions that shouldn't even have to be asked. The offside rule is broken - and it's time to fix it.
