Liverpool fans fume with Jurgen Klopp over his midfield selection vs PSG

Liverpool left themselves needing a win at home to Napoli in order to qualify from their Champions League group as they lost 2-1 away at Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday evening, and many fans blamed the result on Jurgen Klopp’s team selection.

The main gripe among fans on Twitter was the midfield three of Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Gini Wijnaldum, who all struggled to both create anything for the front-three and provide adequate protection for the back four.

The Reds were behind after just 13 minutes as Spanish full-back Juan Bernat beat Alisson with a low finish after Virgil van Dijk’s poor clearance.

PSG then doubled their lead around 25 minutes later as Brazilian star Neymar was allowed to run straight through the centre of the park and eventually finish a rebound from just outside the six-yard box.

Milner did pull one back for Klopp’s side from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time, but other than this the Liverpool midfield were outclassed by Marco Verratti.

We’ll never know if things could have been different had Klopp started any of the summer signings, Fabinho, Naby Keita or Xherdan Shaqiri, who were all sat on the bench but many Liverpool fans were not happy with the German’s call.
