From Gary Lineker to Jamie Carragher, fans have watched ex-footballers queue up to dissect the Reds’ poor performance in Italy and hand advice to the German tactician on where he could look to improve things.

Alan Shearer even felt compelled to jump on Twitter and note down the fact that the Merseysiders found themselves 3-0 down, at the time of the tweet, at the Stadio Armando Diego Maradona, much to his surprise.

The arrival of Thiago Alcantara and his impact on the club did allow Liverpool to hark back, ever so briefly, to a time where intensity was the core of their brand under Klopp.
