Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Sturridge has made nine appearances this season and his only goals came against Burton in the EFL Cup.

His search for a first Premier League goal this campaign continues and Roberto Firmino has been the preferred option in attack.

The England striker does have a great record since he moved to Anfield, scoring 56 goals in 101 appearances for the club.

Klopp has introduced a high intensity and attacking press to his side and many people feel that Sturridge is not suited to the system.

In other Liverpool team news, this 20-year-old has a bright future at the club according to Klopp.
