Liverpool produced a pathetic display against Hull on Saturday afternoon and suffered their fifth defeat in eight games.

Hull 0-2 Liverpool

Premier League, KCOM Stadium
February 4, 2017

Goals: N’Diaye 44′, Niasse 84′

After securing a draw against Chelsea, Liverpool were keen to get back to winning ways following a hugely disappointing January.

Emre Can was given the nod ahead of Georginio Wijnaldum in midfield and Lucas was handed a rare Premier League start at centre-back as Dejan Lovren sat out with a knock.

Sadio Mane returned to the starting XI which meant Roberto Firmino and Adam Lallana were able to line up in their favourite central positions.

It was a slow start from the Reds though and a number of misplaced passes halted chances Liverpool had to threaten Hull’s defence.

Liverpool dominated possession in the first half but it was Hull who drew first blood when they scored just minutes before the break.

The Reds tried to find an equaliser but it was a poor display overall and Hull gave the final blow when they doubled their lead with less than 10 minutes to go.

Here’s how supporters reacted to Liverpool’s 2-0 defeat against Hull in Saturday afternoon’s Premier League clash at the KCOM Stadium.

 

Fans were surprised to see Can and Lucas in the starting XI…

“Should have stuck Gomez in with Matip at CB and can’t believe Klopp is persisting with Can. He’s not been good enough last 10 games” – Scott Smith on Facebook.

Philippe Coutinho’s performance in the first half was not exciting fans…

“Coutinho’s wearing the wrong shoes today. And maybe he needs to pop into Specsavers.” – Serge SL on the forums.

Supporters were even more frustrated when Liverpool conceded just before half-time…

 

And a second goal sealed a Hull victory following a dreadful Liverpool performance…

“What a load of rubbish. Klopp and the players, hang your heads in shame” – 1kingkenny on the forums.

“Message to all teams “sit back let Liverpool have all the ball and possession and break them on counter attack”.” – Jimmy D Koroma on Facebook.

“bereaved of ideas, no penetration, no depth, we have plenty of possession but that is only because our opponents know how to counter our offensive which is so predictable now.” – edlfw01 on the forums.

“No plan B. Opponents sticking 6 defenders in the 18 yard box – klopp no frigging answer. This has happened to us repeatedly, it’s common knowledge. Why are we not adapting?” – Zubin Pradhan on Facebook.

“Lucas at CB, Milner at LB, Can out of position, no striker, no depth. And none of these problems were thought to have been solved?” – SidLFC on the forums.
