Liverpool were beaten 2-1 by Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup on Monday night and some fans took to Twitter to slam one of their players on social media.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have now suffered back-to-back defeats in domestic football, having suffered their first defeat in the Premier League on Thursday against Manchester City.
Liverpool would have been looking for a reaction from that loss and would have felt strongly about their chances of going far in the competition.
However, things did not start well for the current Premier League leaders at Molineux when James Milner was punished in the middle of the field and Raul Jimenez taking full advantage.
The striker managed to put the hosts in front with an excellent goal before half-time, although Liverpool came back strongly in the second half.
Divock Origi levelled the tie five minutes after the restart but a Ruben Neves strike from outside the penalty box meant Klopp’s side would be exiting the competition.
Some fans were furious on Twitter to see Liverpool get knocked out of the tournament in their first fixture, with a number of them pointing the finger at one man on social media.
As with most clubs, the Anfield outfit used a heavily changed side for the game, which included Simon Mignolet replacing Alisson Becker in goal.
However, it appears that the decision did not work and fans were angry with how the 30-year-old performed.
Many fans took to Twitter to share their reaction to the Belgium international’s performance, with one stating that he was a ‘liability’, whilst others clearly want the January transfer window to be the perfect time to offload him.
Here are some of their reactions:
We are out of the FA cup and League cup all because the backup are average. Moreno, Mignolet, Moreno, Studge, Origi, Etc are very average.

Hope Mignolet, Moreno and Sturridge never wear the shirt again. Absolute garbage tonight.

Mignolet bringing back some awful memories and stress levels. Flat footed, refusal to come off his line, incapable of saving any kind of shot. Garbage. #lfc
