Many Liverpool fans were not impressed with right-back Neco Williams during his side’s Premier League clash against Fulham on Sunday afternoon.
Manager Jurgen Klopp made seven changes to the side which lost 1-0 to Chelsea in midweek, with the 19-year-old stepping in for Trent Alexander-Arnold with the Champions League game against RB Leipzig on Wednesday in mind.
Williams found himself coming off second best during his individual battle against Ademola Lookman, who got in behind the Reds’ backline at his expense on numerous occasions. The teenager was also culpable of numerous inaccurate crosses and frequent relinquishing of possession, per SofaScore.
The Wales international had only made two starts in the league before the game, with their title challenge effectively over after a horrendous run of form since the turn of the year, coupled with an array of injuries in the defensive department.
Should Neco Williams be given more time in Liverpool's first team?
As a result, some supporters were not impressed with Williams’ “heinous” performance, with some bizarrely suggesting that he “doesn’t have a clue” despite still being only 19.
Williams scrutinised by these fans
“Does Neco Williams think he’s playing upfront? He’s been caught out a few times already the game hasn’t been on for 15 minutes”
“Neco Williams needs to wake up.”
“People get annoyed at me just slating Neco but- I’m sorry- his defensive awareness is absolutely heinous, and that’s not something I’ll give players slack for”
“Neco and Rhys out of their depth.”
“Neco Williams is horrible. Not good enough at all.”
“Neco Williams is the biggest liability ever, doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing”
