This weekend Liverpool centre-back Mamadou Sakho made his first league appearance for the Reds since the 3-1 defeat to West Ham United back in September.
The 24-year-old Frenchman played in a back-three along with Kolo Toure and Martin Skrtel, as Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers looked to solve the defensive woes that have blighted his side for much of the campaign.
He did not quite manage that, with Liverpool conceding two more goals against the Gunners, but at least his side earned a point after Skrtel's late equaliser.
Liverpool looked to have turned a corner when they won consecutive matches against Stoke City and Leicester City but since then they have slipped out of the Champions League and lost 3-0 away to Manchester United.
A 2-2 draw against Arsenal is nothing to be ashamed of, but Sakho and his defensive partners came in for plenty of criticism on social media after another haphazard showing. That said, a few fans stuck up for the French international, but Liverpool's latest showing still raises more questions than it answers.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what Liverpool fans thought of Sakho's performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
What is it about Sakho that makes Skrtel so bad at defending?— Rickalous (@Rickalous_Singh) December 21, 2014
Mahmadou Sakho is like the opening segment of casualty - something bad is going to happen but you're not quite sure when or what.— JS (@jstone81) December 21, 2014
Sakho and Lovren have made Toure and Skrtel look bad all year, like them both but both make too many small mistakes— Josh (@JReynolds96) December 21, 2014
Sakho woeful same as toure ball control from the both of them is rotten— Sean (@seanmcmullan) December 21, 2014
Once again Dan Agger is sat at home sipping a Cocio and thinking "how did Brendan think Kolo, Skrtel, Sakho and Lovren are better than me?"— Toecutter (@JimmyBernabeu) December 21, 2014
Sakho with the ball at his feet reminds me of Djimi Traore but Sakho a better player with high balls strong in the air !!— colm gray (@colm_gray) December 21, 2014
Watch Sakho,and tell me he isn't much better than Dejan the aggressive— Yash (@YM_78) December 21, 2014
If that was Mignolet, he would be saving it. Skrtel is to blame too. He is a Liability. Great from Sakho and Kolo.— David (@HenryVIIDavid) December 21, 2014
Sure I'm wrong but think Sakho has been good among the general defensive incompetence today.— Mike Sinnerton (@mikesinnerton) December 21, 2014
Sakho is our only good defender— Declan (@Declancarr96) December 21, 2014
Gerrard shouldn't make the foul in the first place, Toure bundles into Sakho Jones is asleep again and Skrtel wow. LFC set pieces.— Shane Langan (@shanelangan90) December 21, 2014
