Liverpool fans here in the Tavern are extremely angered after a shock exit from the FA Cup, as manager Jurgen Klopp seems to be on the receiving end of criticism once again.
The Reds were loving life over a week ago in the middle of their impressive 18-game unbeaten streak, a memory that many Liverpool fans would do any to relive after suffering back-to-back defeats against two sides sitting in the relegation zone. A bad streak that’s seen the current despair override any memories of their biggest achievements so far this season, as manager Jurgen Klopp is quick to be placed in the firing line.
In the Reds’ defeat against West Bromwich Albion, it was a game filled with controversy and missed opportunities, but one thing stayed the same for Liverpool. That of course was their inability to defend, as even the world’s most expensive defender seems to have developed a lack of solidity since moving to Merseyside. But, one of the game’s turning points was when captain Jordan Henderson returned back from injury to a mixed reception from the Anfield crowd. A player that many believe is Klopp’s love child, with his continuous decision to name the midfielder in the side being for reasons that many Liverpool fans are yet to discover.
Although, Klopp was delighted with the performance of Jordan Henderson after he came on, as he highlighted his importance to the team when speaking post-match via Liverpool’s Twitter account.
Klopp on Henderson: "I think Hendo did really well when he came on [against West Brom]. He's very, very important for us."

Following the club’s post, fans looked to slate the manager for his comments as they continue to question the selection of the England international.
Nevertheless, here’s a look at exactly the sort of reaction fans were giving off on social media…

If Liverpool have aspirations of winning anything Jordan Henderson is the type of player that is definately NOT needed. He's best described as a crab.
