Liverpool: Fans call for Xherdan Shaqiri to play more regularly

Liverpool may be thriving in the early weeks of the 2019/20 season, with their 100% Premier League record still intact and an eight-point lead at the summit, but it is not shaping up to be a campaign to remember for Reds winger Xherdan Shaqiri.

His frequent absences from the team have prompted Liverpool-focused Twitter channel @AnfieldWatch to ask its followers if they think Shaqiri should be given a bigger part to play in the Reds’ line-up.

The 27-year-old made 30 appearances last season and scored six goals, two of which came in a 3-1 win over Manchester United last December, but that has been unable to earn him a regular spot in Liverpool’s starting XI, with Mohamed Salah the Reds’ most utilised right-winger.

These Liverpool fans on Twitter believe that Shaqiri deserves a fairer chance to show what he can do at Anfield:
