Southampton fans react on Twitter to Steven Caulker’s horrorshow v Liverpool

Steven Caulker

QPR defender Caulker is currently on loan at Southampton.

Southampton were thrashed by Liverpool on Wednesday evening, falling down to a 6-1 defeat in the League Cup quarter-final.

Despite taking the leading inside the opening minute, and playing at home, Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi shot Liverpool to victory, with the former netting twice in the first half, and the latter scoring his first goals for the club, and completing a hat-trick.

Jordon Ibe netted the other goal, in what was a miserable evening for the Saints, compounded by the perforamnceof Steven Caulker.

Caulker arrived at St Mary’s Stadium at the beginning of this season from QPR, agreeing a season-long loan deal with the Saints as cover after some defensive injury issues plagued the club.

The game against Liverpool was the eighth he has played for Southampton, but the 23-year-old’s reputation as an up-and-coming star has somewhat diminished this season.

He has gone from being a future England stalwart to a player who doesn’t look good enough for the Premier League, and his performance against the Reds was a real horrorshow.

QPR will be thankful that Caulker is not playing for them with performances like this, and Southampton fans made it clear on Twitter after the game that they did not want the once-capped England international playing for them either.
