Liverpool full-back Glen Johnson came off the worst on Monday night after his lacklustre performance against Manchester United caused an uproar on social media site Twitter.

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.

Glen Johnson's best position isnt RB. He look good in the centre imo. In the centre of the Ring of Shame.

After tonight, I hope we can all agree on one thing. Glen Johnson's best position is left back . . . . . . In the dressing room. #LFC

Should've gone to bed as soon as I was made aware Glen Johnson was playing at left back. Always go with your gut.
