Liverpool fans call for England international to be hauled off

Half-time in Liverpool’s crunch clash with Manchester United and Louis van Gaal and the Red Devils faithful will be the happier group.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have struggled to create anything of note during the first-half as United have enjoyed a lot of possession and rightly deserve to be leading thanks to a fine goal from Juan Mata.

It is hard to pinpoint exactly what has gone wrong for Liverpool so far, especially given their recent good form and performances.

Is Daniel Sturridge still not fit enough to lead the line?

Has Jordon Ibe already made such a big impact that they’re already missing his presence?

Are the Reds still poor at the back?

Liverpool fans seem to think that the main reason for their poor half is the performance of Adam Lallana – although, rather ironically, the former Southampton man had Liverpool’s best chance of the half (still not saw how he missed the target?!)
