Klopp takes blame for FA Cup exit

Having plumbed new depths on Sunday, Liverpool found themselves cast as a figure of fun on social media.

Klopp’s claims that the weather played a part in an EFL Cup defeat to the Saints have come back to haunt him once again, while the announcement that club legend Steven Gerrard is to return in a coaching capacity suddenly appears to be terribly timed.

Alberto Moreno and Ragnar Klavan were among those to attract the most criticism for their respective displays.

Some, though, were happy to bury their head in the sand.

Things are not about to get any easier for Liverpool, though, with Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal to come in their next three home games.
