We’re just one game into the 2017/18 season, and it appears as if some Liverpool supporters are already beginning to turn on their manager.
The Merseyside outfit were a little suspect in their first Premier League outing and ended up drawing 3-3 with Watford, thanks to a scrappy late goal from Miguel Britos.
After the goal went in, fans of Jurgen Klopp’s team wasted no time in getting on their manager’s back.
Most of the criticism centred around Klopp’s late replacement of Trent Alexander-Arnold with Joe Gomez.
The substitutions today made us worse when we were on top. That's Jurgen Klopp's fault.

Idiotic substitutions by Klopp and it's cost us the game.

That decision cost us the game! Klopp again showing why he's so poor at closing games out

Liverpool absolute pathetic at the back again and a naive substitution from Klopp thinking the games won??

How klopp can change back 4 in dying minutes ? You have to increase defence options rather than replacing during stoppage time FFS

Meanwhile, some of the more “emotional” LFC fans were rather hasty in writing off their team’s head coach.
I'm actually done. Klopp is a retard if he thinks this is acceptable

Its klopp tactics end of day if this isnt sorted this season klopp needs to fuck off and take origi n lovren with him

To concede 3 goals to Watford and 2 of them corners is pathetic same shite for 4 years Klopp sort it out or fuck Off

Forget the awful subs. The system in which we defend set pieces is woeful. Klopp has to take full responsibility. Had 2.5 seasons to sort it

A 5 year old kid watching our match could tell you what the issue is but apparently Klopp doesn't see this shit.

Very poor decisions by Klopp at the end. We will need to park the bus on Tuesday or we could get demolished.

Thankfully, there are 37 more opportunities for Klopp to turn things around in the league this season.
