He’s so often the target for criticism, often deservedly, but tonight, no Liverpool fan could blame Dejan Lovren for having a poor game.
The Croat enjoyed his best match of the season, making tackles, blocks and passing the ball with composure out of defence.
If he played like this every game, we wouldn’t be talking about our desperate need for central defensive reinforcements…
Unfortunately for Liverpool, with Lovren and Joel Matip solid, it was a mistake from first Emre Can and then Loris Karius that cost us.
The first gave the ball away in our own half which led to a freekick, which was scored after the latter messed up his positioning.
