Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has targeted new full-backs this summer, and after watching Johnson’s performance against United it’s not hard to understand why.

By all accounts, Spaniards Javier Manquillo and Alberto Moreno will be brought in by Liverpool this week, giving Rodgers much more depth on both the right and left sides of defence.

Youngster Martin Kelly filled in for Johnson on the right, while the England man was moved over to the left and proceeded to have a stinker as the Reds succumbed to a 3-1 defeat.

But more disappointing than the result was Johnson’s performance, which as shown below, caused quite the uproar on Twitter.
