One LFC player comes out with massive credit… & he isn’t even on the pitch

Liverpool’s midfield has been horrible against Red Star this evening.

‘Blood on his hands…’ Some Liverpool fans react to horror miss

Gini Wijnaldum started as the holder, with James Milner and Adam Lallana either side – but none were capable of keeping the ball, pressurising the opposition or do anything creatively.

Jurgen Klopp had Naby Keita on the bench, but chose not to use him, with Jordan Henderson injured and unavailable. Fabinho also wasn’t brought on.

Fans on Twitter made the same point that when Liverpool badly struggle to control the game, they actually appreciate the value of our skipper.

Hendo isn’t the most creative option, but he ticks over possession, always wants the ball and at the very least provides energy.

We’re not sure what would have happened if he’d been fit, but perhaps he’ll get less constant stick the next time he’s holding our midfield and controlling the ball.

Who knows.
