Liverpool’s quest to secure a top four finish will likely go to the final day after being defeated 1-0 against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues are just three points behind Jurgen Klopp’s side with a game in hand on the Reds, who only have one league match left.
An Olivier Giroud goal was enough for the victory on a day that Liverpool looked fatigued and under-par, with their UEFA Champions League efforts clearly taking their toll.
Fans were left frustrated with the result and performance and had a particular problem with Trent Alexander-Arnold’s performance, who was selected in midfield instead of at right-back for the second league match in a row.
Although obviously a big fan of the youngster, they believe he isn’t suited to midfield play at this stage of his career and have pleaded with Klopp to ensure he only plays on the right flank going forward.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Clyne’s been off the pace while TAA has been invisible in midfield except when he blasts shots into the top tier. Hendo in for Clyne and move TAA to RB please.

Why would you start TAA in midfield against CHELSEA 🙄 #LFC

TAA is young and will become a fantastic player for Lfc for many years ..but his 2 displays in midfield have shown why Klopp is so hesitant to play him there unless injuries force him ..his combination play with Salah from rb position is one of our strengths.clyne off pls #LFC

Doesnt have the qualities to play as a midfielder. Really wanted to see him in there but like you say,two games he has been shocking.

Clyne is doing nothing, TAA can't play in midfield

Starting to come around to the idea that TAA should be a career rightback. He can do it in midfield, especially once he bulks up, but there's plenty of people who can do that in midfield but how many playmaking rightback are out there in the game?

TAA not ready for midfield yet.Been shocking the last 2 league games.
