The FA Cup

Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Markovic's performance against Villa

Liverpool lost 2-1 to Aston Villa on Sunday but what did Reds fans make of Lazar Markovic's performance?

Liverpool will end this season without a trophy after losing their FA Cup semi-final clash with Aston Villa 2-1.

Brendan Rodgers’ side were disappointing, with Villa deserved winners, but what did Liverpool fans think of Lazar Markovic’s performance?

The 21-year-old winger has taken time to settle at Anfield since arriving last summer from Benfica, but is it fair to criticise a player who has the innate talent but requires more patience from those eager to see a swift return for the £20million spent on him?

This season the Liverpool wide-man has made 31 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals and providing one assist to date. But against Villa he was substituted at half-time, replaced by Mario Balotelli as Rodgers sought to change the game.

That move did not work, with Fabian Delph ultimately adding to Christian Benteke’s first-half equaliser after Philippe Coutinho had initially put Liverpool ahead.

After the match we took to Twitter to see what Liverpool fans thought of Markovic’s performance and you can read a selectin of what we found below:
