Liverpool fans on Twitter keen to keep Lovren on the bench

This season has seen Liverpool win their two games with relative ease, scoring six goals and conceding zero since against West Ham and Crystal Palace. Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk have been key to that and Danny Murphy has spoken to Bwin about how he’d be keen to see Gomez keep his place even when Dejan Lovren returns.

The 41-year-old ex-Liverpool midfielder claimed that he doesn;t think Lovren can keep up his World Cup form and that seems like a fair assessment. The Croatian defender was sublime in the World Cup and had some good games in the lead up to the tournament with Liverpool back at the end of the last season. However, he has some errors in him and they’ve been seen first hand by the fans, that 4-1 loss to Spurs at Wembley is a great example.

The way the club has started this season also shows that Lovren might not be so crucial to the club anyway. Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk have kept two clean sheets in two and if they can keep a third it will be the first time the club has opened a Premier League campaign with three straight clean sheets since the 2015/16 season. Things don’t look like they need changing at the moment and Jurgen Klopp will be well aware of that.

The Liverpool fans on Twitter seem to agree with Murphy over Lovren and won’t want to see Gomez lose his place cheaply.
