Half-time at Anfield and the internet is taking the p*ss out of Liverpool’s defending

JOE

Liverpool might have had the better of the first half against Arsenal, but their inability to keep it tight at the back cost them dearly.

Arsenal looked out of sorts, but still managed to convert their first two chances, and but for a terrible miss from Olivier Giroud Liverpool could have conceded a third.

Twitter had plenty to say about Liverpool’s leaking defence…

Some felt it was more evidence that Klopp needed to bring in new signings…

Others pointed out the contrast between their back line and attacking play…

It was even giving Manchester United fans hope with a weekend trip to Anfield looming.

It was even drawing comparisons with non-existent underwear

Could it be that Jurgen Klopp and his coaching staff are to blame?

But it wasn’t just the defenders getting stick. Simon Mignolet once again found fingers pointed at him.
