Some Liverpool fans react to James Milner’s foul that led to Mateo Kovacic’s fantastic equaliser

Posted by

James Milner has always proven to be a dependable squad option for Jurgen Klopp and helps the squad enormously on and off the pitch.

Our No.7 was involved in a key moment against Chelsea as he gave away a foul that led to the free-kick that preceded the brilliant finish by Mateo Kovacic and brought Chelsea back into the game.

There were several incidents that followed the foul and they were not the blame of the man who turns 36 on the 4th of January but this didn’t stop the finger being pointed at the midfielder.

Here’s a selection of some fan reaction to the Leeds-born veteran’s role in the goal that provided Thomas Tuchel’s side a route back into the game and his performance in general:

It does seem a common trend that every game where the result isn’t perfect, has to be the fault of an individual as many supporters seem to enjoy turning on our players.

However; blame and criticism can be given when necessary and the former Manchester City man did give away a needless free-kick that led to their goal.

The truth is though, if the cross is cleared or just doesn’t lead to a goal – the whole incident is forgotten about.

Drawing at Stamford Bridge is no time to turn on our team, especially when they need our support more than ever for the second-half of the season and in our pursuit of the four trophies we can still win.

  1. As Klopp says, “We win as a team and we lose as a team!” If you cannot get behind The Reds when we lose OR draw, then STFU and go and support Everton or some other club. YNWA, means we are there for LFC, Win, Lose or Draw. Blaming and finger pointing does no-one any good. I am sure the players are painfully aware of the last 2 games consequences. There are enough haters out there without so-called LFC fans adding to their misery. We go again and mean it when we say “YNWA”!!!!!
