Liverpool fans reflect on Twitter to Klopp team selection v Sunderland

By Emma Sanders

Liverpool fans have been discussing on Twitter whether Jurgen Klopp made a mistake with his team selection for the clash against Sunderland.

Klopp made just one change to the side which defeated Manchester City 1-0 before Liverpool were held to a disappointing 2-2 draw against Sunderland.

There was less than 48 hours between the two fixtures as Liverpool kicked off against Manchester City at 5.30pm on Saturday before lining up at the Stadium of Light to face Sunderland at 3pm on Monday.

Despite a grueling test against City at Anfield, Klopp made just one change to the starting XI and it was an enforced one, with Daniel Sturridge replacing the injured Jordan Henderson.

Fans were surprised not to see more changes prior to kick-off and, after witnessing a lack-lustre performance against David Moyes’ Sunderland side, Klopp came under criticism for his selection.

Here is a selection of the messages on Twitter:

Divock Origi, Alberto Moreno, Kevin Stewart and Lucas were all contenders to start the game but Klopp opted to keep Emre Can and Giorginio Wijnaldum in midfield.

Fans were not impressed with Can’s performance throughout the game and the midfielders, which also included Adam Lallana, produced tired-looking displays.

Liverpool took the lead through Sturridge but Can gave away a penalty after handling in the penalty area just moments later and Jermain Defoe equalised for Sunderland.

Sadio Mane snatched a goal in the second half but the forward then gave away a second penalty for the same offence and Defoe beat Mignolet once again to seal a point for the hosts.
