Barcelona were really, really poor against Liverpool on Tuesday night.
There is no question that the Reds deserve immense credit for turning the second leg of their Champions League semi-final around to win 4-3 on aggregate.
However, there is no getting away from the fact that it was a poor performance from Barcelona at both ends of the field.
Jordi Alba has had a strong campaign for the Catalan giants, but the left-back really struggled against Jurgen Klopp’s side at Anfield.
And the Spaniard’s poor display led to a host of criticism from the Everton fans, who were desperate to see Barcelona triumph for obvious reasons.
In this era of ‘big 6’ dominance, has finishing 7th become as good as winning a trophy? The Pl>ymaker FC squad have their say in the video below…
Everton actually signed Alba’s understudy at Barcelona – Lucas Digne – last summer and the Frenchman has been excellent for the Toffees this term.
Following Liverpool’s 4-0 win over the Spanish champions at Anfield, a number of Everton fans took to social media to criticise the Barca man’s performance, which certainly helped the home side record a famous win.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
