Mo Salah came under fire yet again after a poor performance against Napoli in the Champions League.
Liverpool lost 1-0 to Napoli as the Serie A side claimed a late goal.
But it was a toothless display from Liverpool in truth, with very few chances created.
Jurgen Klopp decided not to start with Daniel Sturridge, despite the striker being in red hot form again.
Xherdan Shaqiri also settled for a spot on the bench as Klopp opted to stick with his tried and tested front trio.
Last season, the three-pronged attack of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Salah stoked fear in the opposition.
But all three players had a quiet game, especially Salah.
The Egypt international, who has not been at his best this season, was marked out of the game and had little impact.
When he did get on the ball, he did not look his usual self and was wasteful in possession.
Here are what Liverpool fans said about his display.
Bench Salah versus City please

Shaqiri is definitely gonna be more hungry than salah right now. Shaqiri has a point to prove

Does Klopp have a plan B aside playing through salah because thousands of passes went to him tonight and he failed to make anything productive out of it …he couldn’t even complete a pass …out play has become so predictable

Klopp must bench Salah, he is ineffective, he is boring

Salah form is alarming and he gave the ball away so much it was like watching Origi play. Mane and Firmino not much better. I don’t think it’s time to panic though but neither is just blindly hoping it turns round without work and imagination #LFC
