Some Liverpool fans have been slamming the display of Gini Wijnaldum versus West Brom in the Premier League this evening.
Supporters of Jurgen Klopp’s team were left questioning as to why exactly the Netherlands international started the game or was not taken off at half time given how dominant the Reds were at Anfield in the first half, meaning that perhaps he was not needed in the heart of the midfield.
Should Wijnaldum start for Liverpool?
Before the match today, the 30 year-old only scored one goal and made no assists in his previous 21 games in all competitions for LFC in the 2020/21 season (Transfermarkt), which is not great in terms of the burden being taken off of the front three of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Bobby Firmino for goals and assists.
Liverpool fan reaction to his display
These Liverpool fans slammed his performance on Twitter, with one fan even going as far to say as he was ‘useless’:
“This is the kind of game where we don’t need Wijnaldum offers absolutely nothing”
“Wijnaldum going won’t be a blow”
“What does Wijnaldum do”
“Wijnaldum off he is literally useless in these games”
“In a half where Liverpool have been so dominant, where has Wijnaldum been??? Get Ox on at half time #LFC”
“I don’t understand how Wijnaldum who’s playing deep in midfield consistently manages to have such little touches and influence on games, he’s completed the second least passes for us… That’s not acceptable for a midfielder in a game like this.”
