'Redefining the meaning of invisible' – Liverpool fans fume at one player despite win v Soton
Liverpool eased to another Premier League win on Sunday afternoon, beating Southampton on their home ground 2-0, but fans were left fuming at the display of Georginio Wijnaldum.
The two goals were scored by Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah in the first half, with the two attackers laying on each other’s goals.
It was another assured performance from Jurgen Klopp’s men and he’ll be especially happy with the clean sheet, but he might be concerned about the listless display from Wijnaldum in the middle.
Fans have said that he’s looked poor for a while now and wondered what’s up with the player.
Here is a selection of the best reactions to Wijnaldum’s display on Sunday afternoon.
I'm actually beginning to hate Wijnaldum

People blaming Mane for that, Wijnaldum shouldn’t have left it

Wijnaldum hasn't been bad but he's been really passive. Not sure what's happened to him really.

WIJNALDUM DO SOMETHING!!!

What does Wijnaldum actually do in these games? He isn’t a good passer, he isn’t a good creator, he gets dominated in aerial duels, he isn’t the best ball winner, he doesn’t get on the score sheet
