It feels unfair to single out any individual from Manchester City’s three-goal humbling in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final with Liverpool in midweek. But some players undoubtedly endured more difficult evenings than others, and Kyle Walker falls into that category.
The 34-cap England international failed to contain Roberto Firmino for the first goal, resulting in the ball rolling into the path of Mohamed Salah, and also allowed Sadio Mane to sneak between him and his centre-back for Liverpool’s third.
Now facing Manchester United in a clash that could secure them the Premier League title, we asked City fans earlier this week whether Walker should be dropped after his nightmarish evening at Anfield.
And our poll has revealed that although the majority of City fans would keep Walker in the team, a significant 33% would demote him from the starting XI.
