A number of Liverpool supporters are fuming about a lack of squad depth after journalist David Lynch provided a Reds injury update.
Jurgen Klopp had a quiet summer in the transfer market, only signing Ibrahima Konate and waving goodbye to the likes of Gini Wijnaldum and Xherdan Shaqiri, among others.
The lack of business left plenty of fans unhappy, with a lack of squad depth claimed as the reason for this.
Liverpool are already looking slightly light in attacking areas this season, with Lynch confirming on Twitter on Thursday that Roberto Firmino and Takumi Minamino are both out of Sunday’s trip to Leeds United in the Premier League.
It means Divock Origi is the only genuine attacking option from the substitutes’ bench, assuming Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota all start.
Liverpool fans unhappy with lack of squad depth
These Liverpool fans took to Twitter to show their frustration at the situation.
“So assuming Liverpool start Salah, Jota and Mane against Leeds, #LFC’s forward options off the bench will be Oxlade-Chamberlain and Origi. This is what some #LFC fans mean when they say the squad is clearly lacking depth.“
“So Liverpool has a total of one (1) attacker available off the bench, and it’s Divock Origi. Yeah, we definitely couldn’t have used any reinforcements this summer. What we have will for sure be all we need for the next 8 months.“
“Glad we have depth up top then“
“The state of this club smh“
“I’m in pain“
