Many Liverpool fans were fuming with midfielder Thiago Alcantara during his side’s 3-1 defeat to Leicester City on Saturday.
The Foxes took full advantage’s of the Reds second-half capitulation, as Jurgen Klopp’s side left a 1-0 lead slip with a goalkeeping error from Alisson Becker for the second game running.
Thiago arrived from Bayern Munich last summer and was singled out for giving away a free-kick which led to Leicester’s equaliser midway through the second half.
Per SofaScore, the Spaniard was dribbled past twice, lost out on seven ground duels and failed to make any key passes.
Should Thiago be dropped?
Liverpool’s number six is slowly growing a reputation similar to Manchester United’s Paul Scholes, who was well known for being a poor tackler of the ball. Some fans brought a similar analogy up as you can see below.
Thiago not impressed these fans
“I love Thiago but he doesn’t add anything to that game. Gives away silly fouls which end up to cost us a goal today. Something needs to change #LFC”
“Absolutely awful. Nothing in the final third, Thiago nonexistent except petty poor tackles. Jones best player on pitch hauled off. Then Allison, well. No desire. #LFC”
“Thiago is more of a liability through his defending than a benefit through his attacking at the moment. #liverpool #lfc”
“This season shows how good VVD really is. Also, Thiago has been a disaster. Bayern is better without him, #LFC is garbage with him. He has no place in this squad and they don’t know how to play with him. #YNWA”
“It really pains me to say this too: Thiago has been nothing short of a disaster so far for #LFC, a complete liability. I’m sure he will come good but at the moment he is costing us games.”
“Thiago is the most overhyped player we have ever signed not having any of him #LFC”
