Mamadou Sakho starred in Crystal Palace’s win against Arsenal in the Premier League – and Liverpool fans on Twitter want their loanee star to return to Anfield.
The 27-year-old is currently on loan at Selhurst Park and has made a huge impact so far.
He helped Palace beat Arsenal 3-0 at home to Arsenal on Monday night, which eased their concerns of relegation.
Sakho was frozen out of the Liverpool first team this season after a falling out with Jurgen Klopp in pre-season.
The French centre-back has won five of his six games since his switch to Palace and has been a revelation for Sam Allardyce’s side.
Liverpool fans feel that they need the defender back in their side following his impressive powerful display against Arsenal.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
We need Sakho back @LFC

Klopp needs to swallow his pride and bring back Sakho, the man is 200% better than our defence #LFC

Sakho single handledly keeping clean sheets for Palace. Easily our best defender out on loan…

I'd love to know what beef Klopp has with Sakho. I think we would be 7-9 pts better off if he hadn't been frozen out. #LFC

Absolutely no doubt that Sakho could do a job for us if only Klopp would swallow his pride. #LFC

Liverpool are currently third-placed in the Premier League table and look set to finish in the top-four this season.
However, they have struggled defensively so far this campaign and conceded 40 goals in the league so far, which is 18 more than rivals Tottenham.
Klopp has preferred a centre-back combination of Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren this season, but injuries have meant Ragnar Klavan and Lucas have also been used frequently.
The Merseyside club may be keen to address their defensive areas in the summer window and fans feel that Sakho can be an answer.
