Liverpool fell to a damaging 1-0 loss to Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, and fans have taken to Twitter to destroy Dominic Solanke for a poor cameo display.
The Reds were the better team throughout the game but failed to really test Thibault Courtois, with Sadio Mane coming closest with two chances in the first-half.
The Senegal international flyer forced a smart save from the Belgian with one effort before firing a poked shot straight at the stopper after a return pass from Roberto Firmino.
The Blues took the lead against the run of play through Olivier Giroud, who leapt highest to nod home a Victor Moses cross at the near post just after the 30-minute mark.
Liverpool were again the better side after the break but Chelsea went closest to getting the next goal with Marcos Alonso’s acrobatic volley flashing just wide.
Solanke was introduced on 75 minutes to try and make a difference but the England youth international failed to do so with a disappointing cameo.
The 20-year-old had a big chance to steal a point for the Reds at the end but his header was well wide from Sadio Mane’s swinging cross, and fans took to Twitter after the game to slam him for his performance.

Solanke needs to go out on loan next season, he's not good enough to even challenge for a place on the bench right now! #LFC

Van Dijk looked more dangerous than Solanke in the box and he’s a centre back

Solanke just doesn't cut it for me.

With all due respect to Solanke, I do wish we had another ST who could come off the bench and make a bigger Impact. Like when he comes off the bench it doesn’t fill you with confidence we’re going to score a goal

Not a knee jerk reaction, but Clyne, Lallana and Solanke absolutely have to be off in the summer. Absolute waste of wages. I have opinions of a few others, but these need out. Now.
