Liverpool fans criticise Solanke performance

Liverpool dropped back down to earth after the euphoria of Wednesday’s Champions League victory against Roma, with a disappointing 1-0 loss away to Chelsea.

Oliver Giroud scored the decisive goal in the first half as Liverpool struggled to break down a rigid Chelsea defence.

The race for the top for will go to the wire, with three points separating Chelsea in fifth and Liverpool in third.

Chelsea, at home to Huddersfield on Wednesday and away to Newcastle on Sunday, would finish above Liverpool if they win both their remaining games and the Reds fail to beat Brighton at Anfield on the final day.

Tottenham are a point behind Liverpool and, like Chelsea, have a game in hand.

Liverpool’s squad depth was once again questioned as manager Jurgen Klopp did not have any strong striking options on the bench. He turned to youngster Dominic Solanke, 20, who failed to make an impact.

Liverpool fans heavily criticised the youngster’s performance, and here’s what they were saying on Twitter.
