Liverpool suffered a third consecutive defeat in the Premier League at the hands of Leicester City on Saturday, with the defense of the title and the top four chances taking a big hit as a result.
The Reds have now lost six of 24 league games this season, drawing another seven, and have found themselves six points behind Manchester United and Leicester.
Liverpool would find themselves 16 points behind Manchester City if Pep Guardiola’s side clinches victory over Everton on Wednesday.
Some fans are not happy with how the team has done in recent weeks, and they called the head coach Jurgen Klopp.
However, BBC Match of the Day host Gary Lineker is unhappy with that small section of Liverpool fans, and took to Twitter to react like this:
A question for the small minority of @LFC fans calling for Klopp’s removal: have they completely lost their minds?

Liverpool host Everton on Saturday and will have to bounce back quickly with a win if they want to play the Champions League next season.
Chelsea and West Ham United’s victories against Newcastle United and Sheffield United respectively tomorrow will see Klopp’s men drop to sixth place in the Premier League table.
Only three points stand between them and the Toffees, who have three games in hand, and Liverpool cannot afford any more mistakes.
Klopp has already given up defending the title, and it will be interesting to see if the German can get his team back on full blast.
Injuries on both sides of the pitch throughout the season have done Liverpool no favors, and the owners’ refusal to quickly provide transfer funds last month is already proving costly.
Klopp is certainly frustrated with how things have gone this season, but it is too early to ask for his head, especially considering how he has made the team one of the best teams in the world since his arrival.
Unfortunately, patience is not in the dictionary of most soccer fans and it is not surprising that some of them want it to go away as soon as things go wrong.
