Liverpool lost 3-0 to Watford on Sunday but what did Reds fans make of the French international's contribution?
Liverpool’s defence was given a torrid time by Watford’s exciting side this weekend as the Hornets ran out 3-0 winners courtesy of a goal from Nathan Ake and a brace from Odion Ighalo.
The result means Liverpool have now failed to win any of their last four matches in all competitions following their 6-1 hammering of Southampton in the Capital One Cup back at the start of the month.
Liverpool’s defence has come in for plenty of criticism lately and that will only increase after their horror show against a Watford side that did not give them a minute to relax.
With Dejan Lovren side-lined, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp brought Mamadou Sakho straight back into the starting line-up following the Frenchman’s own injury absence, and in hindsight the former Paris Saint-Germain player could have done with a little more time to get back to full match fitness.
It did not help when fellow centre-back Martin Skrtel left the field injured shortly before half-time but by then Liverpool were already 2-0 down.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what Liverpool fans thought of Sakho’s latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
That was so bad today played like they were 11 strangers and Sakho was terrible but I would not say that to his face— Dennis Holding (@b7f2f325c9a74f5) December 20, 2015
Terrible performance today . Firmino not interested, lallana just does cruyff turns pointlessly. The less said about sakho the better. Dross— LinearFlooring (@SteTalent) December 20, 2015
@LFC Sakho played well, but is it possible to work on his footing and his ability to play with the ball at his feet? BR failed to do that...— Dolapo Johnson (@DolapoJohnson3) December 20, 2015
Klopp's mistake having Sakho play after injury. Maybe last 15 minutes would've been better.— Al Bush (@Abush27) December 20, 2015
Sakho is best when he is being Sakho and not trying to be Franco Baresi.— robert eaton (@pedroeaton04) December 20, 2015
