Liverpool have taken to social media to wish Xherdan Shaqiri happy birthday, and many fans have used the occasion to voice their views on the player.

As well as sending well wishes, many have made it clear that they believe he should be starting more often, and have bemoaned the lack of game time he is getting currently.

Since joining the Reds in summer 2018 the Switzerland international has only started 15 games, and this season he has seen his opportunities stifled with only 14 minutes played in 2019/20, excluding the Community Shield.

On the one hand, his limited time on the pitch is understandable given the form of Liverpool’s front three, but he has proved his quality since joining the club and supporters feel he is not getting a fair crack of the whip.

In a red shirt he averaged a goal or assist every 112 minutes last term, a good return for a player who often comes on late in games, whilst his double at home to Manchester United last season played a big hand in his team leading the table at Christmas.

Who would be a better signing for Liverpool?
