Lucas is keen to stay at Liverpool beyond 2017

James Milner and Lucas Leiva started as Liverpool were beaten 3-1 at Leicester on Monday night – and fans on Twitter want the senior duo sold.

The Reds produced a poor display as they were outplayed by a Foxes team that went into this match in the relegation zone and without a manager.

The Premier League champions had sacked title winning manager Claudio Ranieri earlier on in the week as the home team outplayed their opponents.

A Jamie Vardy brace and Danny Drinkwater’s brilliant volley helped the managerless club clinch a much-needed three points against the top four hopefuls.

Left-back Milner and centre-back Lucas played the full match but the duo produced a horrific display as supporters urged the manager to sell them in the summer.

The duo were playing out of position and supporters were questioning why Klopp isn’t playing specialist players in those positions.

As a result, fans stated the reason they cannot defend is because of players such as Milner and Lucas as they want new players brought in the summer.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

The result at the King Power means Klopp’s side have missed the chance on moving into the top four.

As a result, they remain in fifth place in the table on 49 points from their 26 games, one point behind fourth-placed Arsenal and one point ahead of sixth-placed Manchester United who have a game in hand.
