Emerging onto the pitch to replace Lazar Markovic after seventy minutes, the Italian was almost too eager to impress and noticeably failed to pull off several moves.

It seems the striker can’t do anything right at the moment and, as Liverpool were unable to find a way through José Mourinho’s defence and a route to the final of the competition, a frustrated fan base started making League Cup semi-final Mario Balotelli jokes:

Mario Balotelli has had more haircuts than goals this season ??????

Balotelli's stats must have improved at the final whistle, after he ran across the pitch, down the tunnel and back to the dressing room…
