Liverpool could not get back to winning ways when they welcomed Norwich City to Anfield on Sunday, but Brendan Rodgers’ side did at least take a point after losing their last two Premier League matches to West Ham United and Manchester United respectively.
The impressive Danny Ings put Liverpool ahead after he came on for Christian Benteke at half-time, netting just three minutes after the restart. But Liverpool’s defence could not prevent Russell Martin from equalising after a mistake from Reds goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.
Despite that error, Liverpool’s back-line looked far more solid with Mamadou Sakho back playing alongside Martin Skrtel.
The French international has had to wait patiently for his chance this season, but he has now played consecutive matches against Bordeaux and Norwich and on recent evidence he will not be heading back to the substitutes’ bench any time soon.
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:

Moreno and Sakho were great today... Other than that, naaah.— YNWATV™ (@YNWATV) September 20, 2015
Sakho immense, Moreno superb, Ing good, Sturridge/Benteke promising, Coutinho average, Milner poor, Mignolet nervous, Rodgers clueless #LFC— Anthony Newstead (@anthnewstead) September 20, 2015
Still baffles me that Rodgers stuck with Lovren this long. Sakho is by far the best central defender at the club— Ben Hallam (@BenHallam7) September 21, 2015
I honestly can't believe how Gomez and Lovren have started over Moreno and Sakho in the past weeks. Disgraceful. BR needs to go.— LFC (@PCou10) September 21, 2015
