How Jurgen Klopp’s substitutions are failing in 2019

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp’s use of his bench in recent weeks has come under fire from fans and football specialists. The Red’s substitutes have only contributed one goal or assist since Xherdan Shaqiri’s brace from the bench against Manchester United three months ago. The last Liverpool substitute to make an impact on the scoresheet was Fabinho, who scored the Reds' fourth goal in the 4-0 win over Newcastle at Anfield on Boxing Day. Shaqiri's double in the 3-1 win over United - the first of which came just three minutes after he came on - was 10 days before that Magpies win. While December started with Origi's 96th-minute winner against Everton and subs Firmino (scoring) and Salah (assisting) making an impact in a 3-1 win at Burnley.
