Following Liverpool’s thumping 4-0 victory at home to Crystal Palace, some Reds supporters were less than impressed with 62-cap international midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum despite the positive occasion – taking to social media in order to voice their concerns with the lack of finishing.
Wijnaldum, who has been long been a fan favourite at Anfield, still isn’t immune to criticism given he arguably should have scored during the rout – missing a couple of very good opportunities to get his name on the scoreboard.
Who should play alongside Jordan Henderson and Fabinho?
As per SofaScore, the 29-year-old Dutch international midfielder also lost the ball 11 times and won just 3/7 ground duels – prompting a section of supporters to raise their eyebrows.
Jurgen Klopp’s side romped to the impressive 4-0 win after Trent Alexander-Arnold’s superb free-kick opened the floodgates, with strikes courtesy of Mohamed Salah, Fabinho and Sadio Mane going on to round off a memorable Anfield evening.
Here’s what these supporters had to say regarding Wijnaldum’s performance.

Gini Wijnaldum could do with a change of boots at half time. Does he have his Netherlands ones to hands? #LFC
