Liverpool: Fans react to their side potentially playing two games in one night

Liverpool fans have been reacting to rumours that Jurgen Klopp’s side may be forced to play two matches on the same night due to their fixture pileup.

The Reds came back from two goals down on multiple occasions to beat Arsenal 5-4 on penalties in the Carabao Cup, in a game that finished 5-5 in normal time.

Their quarter-final tie away to Aston Villa is due to take place on Tuesday 17th December. However, the Reds will be in Qatar for their Club World Cup semi-final match which is held the day after, causing an impossible situation that Klopp’s side find themselves in.

The Merseyside club will take part in the international club competition as a result of winning the Champions League last season.

Chris Bascombe of the Daily Telegraph revealed that discussions have taken place with Liverpool to play a team of youngsters at Villa Park on either the 17th or 18th December, while the first team play in their other fixture in the Middle East.

Supporters were astounded by the news and surprised at the lack of flexibility that the FA are willing to give them.

Here you will find some of the best comments from Liverpool fans:
