It has not been the best start to 2017 for Liverpool having recorded just one win in their seven matches of the year.
Their Premier League title campaign is hanging by a thread after dropping 10 points adrift of leaders Chelsea, and the misery continued on Wednesday night.
Manager Jurgen Klopp recorded his first ever semi-final defeat as coach when the Reds were knocked out of the EFL Cup by Southampton, who won the tie 2-0 on aggregate.
Liverpool’s flailing season has caused some fans to question not only the players, but their manager.
The Reds jumped out of the blocks at the start of the season, devastating opponents defences with their attacking presence, but the last few games have lacked that intensity.
Philippe Coutinho has not been back in the fold long after recovering from an ankle injury and it is clear that the team are missing Sadio Mane, who is currently playing in the Africa Cup of Nations with Senegal.
Let’s not forget that the defence remains shaky and both goalkeepers, Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius, are still not breeding much confidence when in between the sticks.
Some fans have taken their anger out on Klopp, calling for the club to sack him just 15 months after he replaced Brendan Rodgers.
Plenty of other Liverpool supporters, though, are keeping faith with the German and have turned on their fellow fans who do not agree.
