Liverpool fans have praised Jurgen Klopp for substituting Joe Allen at half-time against Rubin Kazan.

The Wales international struggled during the first half and was replaced by Lucas Leiva at the break after picking up a yellow card before the interval.

Many of the same fans predicted that Allen would struggle - with some even calling Klopp the new Brendan Rodgers for selecting the midfielder - and they were ultimately proved correct.

The 25-year-old, who cost Liverpool a cool £15 million in the summer of 2012, has flattered to deceive at Anfield since leaving Swansea City. Perhaps the step up was a little too big for the technically-assured central midfielder.

Liverpool fans react on Twitter

Liverpool went a goal down inside the opening 15 minutes, but equalised before the half-time break thanks to Emre Can, shortly after the visitors had been reduced to 10 men.

Klopp will now be hoping to record his first Premier League victory at Anfield when Liverpool host Southampton on Sunday afternoon.
