Liverpool fans have annihilated Danny Ings for his performance in the 0-0 draw with Stoke at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.
Ings, 25, started his second Premier League game in a row after scoring against West Brom last week, however fans clearly saw the one-time England international as someone who was dragging the entire team down after a poor showing on the left wing.
The former Burnley striker was drafted in by Jurgen Klopp with Wednesday night’s clash against Roma at the Stadio Olimpico in mind with doubts over the fitness of Sadio Mane in the build-up to Saturday.
However Ings did little to show fans why he is a good alternative up front with a rather hapless display against the relegation-threatened Potters.
He had a goal disallowed for offside in the first-half and was eventually substituted off in the 65th minute to be replaced by Nathaniel Clyne.
One angry Liverpool fan tore Ings to shreds, claiming that Klopp must “get rid” of the centre-forward.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
Trying to be patient with all these attacks, hopefully a goal will come. Ings isn’t good enough though, offers nothing

I’d rather Lovren up top than Ings.

Weak link upfront is Ings. Poor movement.

Ings is bad…

Ings isn't going to make it here. I would have preferred Woodburn or Solanke instead.

Ings is garbage, proper brexiteer.

Gonna really question Klopp if he doesn't immediately get rid of Ings this Summer.

Ings has struggled for game-time for Liverpool this season as he has fought his way back to fitness.
He has made 13 appearances in all competitions for the senior squad, scoring one goal in what was his second Premier League start of the campaign in the 2-2 draw at West Brom last week.
There’s no doubt that Ings will be back on the bench against Roma this week as the Reds look to book their spot in the Champions League final.
In other Liverpool news, the Reds are working on two midfield goal machine deals with one on the verge of an agreement.
