Liverpool midfielder Shelvey hits out at internet criticism

Jonjo Shelvey has hit out at Liverpool supporters taking to Twitter to criticise his performance after the Reds lost at home to West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League on Monday evening, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Messages critiquing Shelvey’s display against West Brom were directed to the midfielder’s personal Twitter account following the 2-0 defeat, with Shelvey eventually issuing a retort. He tweeted: “ Love people giving me stick... when half of the people on here haven't got a clue what they're on about” and then describe his critics as “keyboard warriors”, a term used to describe people who make comments from the safety of their computer that they would never say in person.

Shelvey was making his first start for Liverpool since Boxing Day, when Brendan Rodgers’ side lost to Stoke City, but the England midfielder was substituted after an hour of what the Mirror claims was a “poor display”. Shelvey was playing in place of the injured Daniel Sturridge.

The newspaper also draws a comparison between the response of Shelvey to his internet critics and that of Daniel Agger, who was at fault for the second Albion goal scored by Romelu Lukaku. Agger, also on Twitter, wrote: “I agree with most of you…My performance in the last 10 minutes was NOT good enough.

Liverpool are now ninth in the Premier League table, six points behind Merseyside rivals Everton, eight adrift of Arsenal in fifth and 12 short of fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, who hold the final Champions League qualification spot.
