There are just two trophies remaining for Liverpool to win this season - the Champions League and the Premier League.

With the Reds four points clear at the top of the Premier League, Jurgen Klopp decided to make several changes for their trip to Wolves in the FA Cup third round.

Alisson, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson, Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum played no part in the 2-1 defeat at the Molineux Stadium.

Meanwhile, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah did come on for the last 20 minutes in a bid to save the tie.

But they couldn’t and Liverpool were dumped out of the FA Cup.

Klopp may have made nine changes for the tie handed starts to 17-year-old Rafa Camacho and 18-year-old Curtis Jones, while 16-year-old Ki-Jana Hoever was introduced after just six minutes.

But there were also starts for three summer signings - Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keita.

Fabinho had a solid game filling in at centre-back and Shaqiri looked bright, almost scoring a terrific 25-yard free-kick only to see it hit the inside of the post thanks to a small touch from John Ruddy.

But it was the performance of Keita that got many Liverpool fans talking - and not for the right reasons.

It’s been a tough start to Keita’s Liverpool career since his £48 million move from RB Leipzig.

And after witnessing his 90-minute display against Wolves on Monday night, Liverpool fans really weren’t impressed.


Liverpool Twitter account LFCGlobeUk asked fellow fans their thoughts on Keita so far and the replies were pretty negative.

Check out some of the replies:

Earlier this week, Klopp actually spoke about Keita’s start to his Liverpool career and admitted he hasn’t hit the heights he showed in Germany.

"No. That is sometimes how it is. I spoke to him. [With] Naby everything is fine. I am completely happy with him," Klopp admitted.

"Could he be a bit more confident in the games? Yes.

"Is he exactly the player in his best time at Leipzig? No, but he is still adapting - that is how it is."
