Some Liverpool fans blast ace for performance vs Huddersfield

Some Liverpool fans blast ace for performance vs Huddersfield

Liverpool were very wasteful in their 1-0 win against Huddersfield this evening, Huddersfield caused the Reds more problems than they would have expected.

Liverpool failed to create the amount of clear-cut chances that fans would have expected throughout the game and the Reds were often wasteful with the ball in the final third.

Liverpool’s line-up included several changes with the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri, Daniel Sturridge, Dejan Lovren and Adam Lallana brought into the starting line-up.

Liverpool scored the only goal of the game through Mohamed Salah in the 24th minute of the tie, Salah hadn’t scored for the Reds for four games heading into today’s match-up against the Terriers.

Salah produced a fine right-foot finish after a perfectly weighted pass from summer signing Xherdan Shaqiri. The Egyptian international was a deserved Man of The Match this evening.

Salah vs Huddersfield

Salah was the best player on the pitch for Liverpool tonight and his well-taken goal proved to be decisive for the Reds.

With Liverpool fans largely disappointed that their side didn’t blow away Huddersfield in more exciting fashion some Liverpool fans took to Twitter to voice their concerns on Lallana’s performance.

Check out the tweets below:

Lallana was eventually substituted in the 69th minute of the match, with summer signing Fabinho coming on to make his Premier League debut for the Reds.

Criticism towards Lallana seems unfair considering that the England international was making his first start for Liverpool since January 1st.

Lallana was bound to look rusty after the amount of injuries the midfielder has had to deal with in the last year, Sturridge looked rusty when he was first reintroduced into the team and things are now flying for the striker.

Despite the areas of improvement Liverpool have managed to just do enough to continue their unbeaten record in the Premier League this season.

The fans should have faith in Klopp’s decision to start Lallana as they will need quality in depth if they look to pry the Premier League title away from the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea this season.
