Goals from Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah ended up wrapping up a 4-1 win for Jurgen Klopp’s side, but is was Shaqiri’s cameo appearance that got a lot of Liverpool fans talking on social media.

The Swiss international came on with around 30 minutes left to play, however it seems like this was all the time he needed in order to get his name on a lot of Reds fans’ lips.

Because of the former Stoke man’s display, a whole host of fans took to Twitter to call for the player to start against Unai Emery’s Gunners side next week, something that Jurgen Klopp may actually go through with given his performance against the Bluebirds on Saturday.

Following the match, a whole bunch of fans took to Twitter to call for Shaqiri to be named in Liverpool’s starting XI for their tie vs Arsenal next week.

Here are a few of those tweets calling for the midfielder to start. To be honest, we wouldn’t be against him starting either!
