Liverpool: Fans slam Takumi Minamino following disappointing derby display

Liverpool: Fans slam Takumi Minamino following disappointing derby display - Liverpool News

The Reds were unable to register a win against rivals Everton in their long-awaited return to Premier League action.

Liverpool struggled to find their groove at Goodison Park and spoils were shared after 90 minutes saw out a disappointing 0-0 Merseyside derby result.

Jurgen Klopp opted for a shift in his starting personnel, including the introduction of Takumi Minamino over top scorer Mohamed Salah. The South Korea international, who joined the club from RB Salzburg in January, was taken off in replace of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain after a quiet first half.

Reds fans weren’t overly impressed with Minamino’s shift against the Blues, with one supporter suggesting ‘he clearly doesn’t want to play’ as a winger. Indeed, operating on the wing didn’t seem to suit the 25-year-old in the derby, despite that being his more natural position. According to Sofascore, Minamino failed to muster up a single shot on target, cross or key pass. He also struggled in possession, completing just 11 passes overall and losing the ball seven times.
