Liverpool fans have taken to social media to criticise Joe Allen's performance against Bournemouth in the Capital One Cup this evening. 

The Wales international played the entirety of the clash at Anfield as Jurgen Klopp secured his first win as Liverpool boss. 

Nathaniel Clyne's early goal was enough for the Merseyside outfit to secure their place in the last eight of the competition.

Despite the victory, the Reds faithful weren't too impressed with Allen, who has struggled at the club recently. Despite the summer departure of Steven Gerrard, the aforementioned midfielder has failed to establish himself as a key man throughout the course of the season.

With the Reds set to take on rivals Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday, it remains to be seen as to whether the ex-Swansea City man will keep his place in the side. 

Slightly Harsh 

In truth, the criticism directed towards Allen appears to be somewhat harsh. After giving the ball away in the opening minutes, the midfielder appeared to grow into the game.

Liverpool fans: what did you make of Allen's performance? Have your say below!
