Rodgers decided to revert to a three-back that he had successful utilised last season with Emre Can returning to the defence.
Can who is by self-definition a central midfielder was used as a make-shift defender last season but looked a little rusty against Everton.
The 21-year-old’s failed attempt at clearing a cross inadvertently resulted in the ball finding its way to Romelu Lukaku inside the penalty area who buried the ball into the back of the net.
We took to social media to look at what Liverpool fans reaction was to Can’s performance in the derby.
Most fans were disappointed with Rodgers playing him in defence and urged the replacement manager to use Can in his proper position.
There was also quite a lot of banter regarding Emre Can’s altercation with Barkley.
