Flocking to Twitter, many Liverpool fans slammed the performance of defender Neco Williams during their dramatic penalty shoot-out win over Leicester City in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals.
Jurgen Klopp’s side continue their fight on all fronts despite fielding a very weakened team on Wednesday evening and finding themselves down and out at one point.
Who should Liverpool sign in January?
An early brace from Foxes striker Jamie Vardy gave the home side a mountain to climb before Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain pulled a goal back, but it wasn’t long before James Maddison restored Leicester’s two-goal first half cushion.
Fighting back from 3-1 down, Diogo Jota’s strike mid-way through the second half gave Liverpool hope before a dramatic 95th minute equaliser from Takumi Minamino made it 3-3.
Following no further drama in extra time, the match went to penalties as Klopp’s men eventually secured a very memorable shoot-out win on Merseyside.
Liverpool fans slam Williams…
During the contest, however, Reds supporters saw fit to criticise Williams for his display – and it’s not hard to see why going by his numbers.
The 20-year-old, losing possession a seismic 23 times, also won just 25% of his aerial duels and lost nine out of his 13 duels on the grass – all while finding just one out of his eight crosses from out wide (SofaScore).
Following a difficult evening, Liverpool supporters criticised the player’s display – find all of their verdicts from Twitter down below:
“It has been obvious since he debuted. Neco williams will never be good enough for Liverpool. a player who excels at nothing. needs to be sold immediately”
“Neco Williams is actually bare slow”
“Neco Williams just isn’t good enough for Liverpool.”
““Neco Williams is terrible at football.
Vardy’s 2nd goal came because he doesn’t know to to control a football.”
“Never understood any hype around Williams just because he had a decent game against Belarus. Every time he’s played for us he’s been poor.”
“Honestly get williams off the wing he’s offered nothing going forward”
“Neco Williams is just a short Wijnaldum on the wings!”
