Liverpool fans look to Jurgen Klopp for ‘disrespectful’ XI as Leicester scores twice as early

Liverpool fans have turned on Jurgen Klopp after naming a ‘disrespectful’ side against Leicester in the Carabao Cup.

The Reds boss has made 10 changes to the squad that faced Tottenham in the Premier League this weekend, with only 19-year-old Tyler Morton surviving.

The Foxes took an early 2-0 lead with Liverpool’s backline unable to cope with the offensive threat.

“Literally the biggest frustration I have with Klopp is his utter disrespect for national cup competitions every year,” added a Reds fan.

Another commented: “Klopp is the one to blame. It’s amazing how other PL teams with worse team depth than ours also have better teams than us. It’s shameful.”
