Liverpool made it “too easy” for Real Madrid as they lost 3-1 in the quarter-final first leg in Madrid. However, Mohamed Salah’s goal offers Jurgen Klopp’s a lifeline in the return game at Anfield.
Some of the Liverpool fans on Twitter gave credit to Liverpool defender Ozan Kabak for his individual performance.
Liverpool were second best throughout an entertaining game, as they once again came up short against a top opponent.
Vinicius Junior scored twice during the game, while Marco Asensio scored another from close-range following a defensive mistake from Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Many Liverpool fans took to social networking site Twitter to express their reaction to Kabak’s performance.
Many Reds fans feel that the Turkish defender was one of the few positives from the game for Klopp’s side.
The 21-year-old centre-back looked composed and did fairly well against Karim Benzema, making some good tackles. Many Liverpool fans were also impressed with how he bailed out Natt Phillips on a number of occasions.
Here are some of the selected tweets:
Ozan Kabak appreciation tweet ❤️
Our best player tonight. Very unfairly taken off by Klopp.
Hope it doesn’t affect his confidence. pic.twitter.com/O54qP2vDjX

Liverpool ripped Arsenal apart at the weekend, winning 3-0 in a convincing display and many felt that they have turned the corner around. However, once again, they fell short of the high standards they had set last season.
The Reds were outclassed by a superior opponent. However, Klopp will be frustrated by the fact that Liverpool gave the ball away cheaply and they were toothless for a major part of the game, barring a brief 20-minute spell fightback.
