The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are still struggling to get over their side’s disappointing loss to Tottenham over the weekend. Expectations were very high in the pub before the game, especially after such a dominant win against Maribor, but the Reds failed to deliver on all counts. Simply put, they were outclassed by Tottenham, with Klopp’s team well and truly humbled by their so-called Premier League title rivals.
The game brought a number of deficiencies in the Liverpool team to light once again, with the defence proving to be the outstanding area of concern. In particular, the form of Dejan Lovren has been in the spotlight this week, and the fans in the pub have simply had enough. In fact, a few of them have been calling for him to be dropped permanently – and they want him replaced by Joe Gomez.
Conversely to Lovren, Gomez has enjoyed a pretty solid start to the season, and though he hasn’t played consistently, he has impressed. Offering technical skill, solid defensive work and consistent performances, Gomez is a very bright talent, and at 20-years-old, he’s only going to get better and better.
The defence is clearly an area of concern for Liverpool, and Klopp needs to act. Lovren simply isn’t good enough, and until January at least, it’s time for Gomez to take his place.
