Liverpool fans on Twitter tear into Lovren for comments after Wolves shocker

Dejan Lovren is one of those players who can never seem to find a middle ground. The Croatian defender either punches well above his weight in terms of his level of performance, or finds himself having a shocker, and Friday night was the latter.

There is absolutely no better Christmas present for the Reds than what this weekend has brought them so far. Not only did they kick off the weekend in style with a controlled 2-0 win away at Wolves but they also were given the festive surprise of a Crystal Palace away win at The Etihad. However, they won’t be celebrating just yet, and if Lovren plays how he did on Friday again, then it’s far from over.

The Croatian defender seemed to struggle with Nuno Espirito Santo’s side’s directness in attack, and the conditions certainly will not have helped the ex-Southampton man on the night either. Jurgen Klopp started the season with Joe Gomez partnering Virgil van Dijk but now the Englishman is injured the responsibility is Lovrens to step up and perform, and he will definitely need to do better than he did two days ago if the Kopites are serious about winning the league.

The Reds have little to no faith in Lovren when he’s dropping clangers, and they’ll be desperate for him to improve ahead of their Anfield clash with Newcastle on Boxing Day.
