Some Liverpool fans are utterly disgusted with the starting lineup that Jurgen Klopp has selected for the Reds’ all-important Champions League tie against Real Madrid this evening.
The German has made two changes to the side that started the shock 3-1 loss in the first-leg, with the Reds now tasked with the difficult challenge of producing a comeback against Zinedine Zidane’s men.
Klopp has started veteran midfielder James Milner and striker Roberto Firmino over Naby Keita, who was hooked after disappointing last Tuesday, and the impressive Diogo Jota.
Liverpool’s task is very difficult and the first-leg was a shambles, but some of the reaction to tonight’s lineup is pretty astonishing, you’d think Klopp would be shown more respect for all he’s done.
Trusted midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum’s inclusion in the starting eleven has been particularly criticized as Thiago Alcantara sits on the bench.
The decision to start James Milner could actually prove to be a smart one, it’s clear that the Reds lacked experience, and the veteran brings plenty of that, as well as his brilliant work rate.
Milner’s engine in the middle of the park could offer more license to Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson to roam forward, which in turn could quell the threat of their opposing full-backs.
