The Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern certainly enjoyed their dramatic win away at Burnley yesterday to keep them in the driving seat in the race for the automatic Champions League places. Indeed, our resident Reds haven’t stopped celebrating since!
However, not all of our local Liverpudlians are in a great mood. While, clearly, a win is a huge bonus, many of the Kopites who prop up our bar were hugely disappointed with the performance of Dominic Solanke up front. Handed a chance during the frantic festive period, the England U20 World Cup didn’t make much of an impression at Turf Moor.
With the likes of Mo Salah, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino all missing the win, Liverpool fans online looked to share the same view in regard to the former Chelsea youngster. In fact, some of them even want to see Danny Ings – who hasn’t played regularly for around 2 years now – handed a chance instead.
Having said that, here’s a look at the reaction online.
Dom solanke just isn’t our type of player and t really showed. Today also shows why Gomez isn’t a centre half, no awareness #lfc

Still don’t get how swapping Origi for Solanke in our squad makes us better. #LFC

Klopp in his own knowledge let Origi leave for loan and allowed this average Solanke here… This is bad from Klopp really… #LFC

Origi sure better than Solanke, he has been given few chances but he hasn't impressed anyone. If new signings come in then he is off the pack. #LFC

Solanke is not fit for Chelsea's first team but he is doing that in #LFC

Things we know #3: Ings deserves a chance ahead of Solanké. The latter’s movement isn’t good enough at the moment. #LFC
