Liverpool fans react as Klopp snubbed Oxlade-Chamberlain and Keita in his starting line-up

Liverpool drew 1-1 with Napoli.

Liverpool fans cannot comprehend why Jurgen Klopp left Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita out of his starting line-up.

Fabinho, James Milner and Jordan Henderson lined up in a three-man midfield against Napoli. Then, Gini Wijnaldum came on for Fabinho after the Brazilian’s 19th-minute injury.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was left on the bench until later in the game. In the 57th minute, he replaced Joe Gomez as Milner went to full-back.

Keita, on the other hand, was left out of the matchday squad altogether. It has been a difficult season for the Guinea midfielder, who has had his injury problems. But Liverpool fans felt he should have been playing.

Both Oxlade-Chamberlain and Keita are more positive options than Milner and Henderson in the midfield trio. Liverpool eventually drew 1-1 with Napoli and their qualification chances have gone down to the final game.

Liverpool fans took to Twitter after the game to discuss Oxlade-Chamberlain being on the bench and Keita not making the squad. There were a number of fans discontent with Klopp’s decision to ignore both. Here are some tweets.
