Dejan Lovren’s Liverpool career is hanging by a thread.
His performance against Spurs on Sunday was possibly the worst defensive display we’ve from someone in red since the Premier League began.
Jurgen Klopp didn’t pull any punches in his post-match interview, either:
“The first goal was a little throw in and we are not really there. It was just really bad, bad, bad defending,” he told the Mirror.
“If I am involved in this situation on the pitch, Harry cannot get the ball.
“I could have been out there in my trainers and they wouldn’t have scored.”
“The second, a counter attack, when the ball passes Dejan Lovren it is already too late.”
Following these comments, and thousands of Liverpool fans attacking him on social media, Lovren removed Liverpool from his Instagram bio and banned followers from making comments.

His final post before everything vanished was a Sunday night selfie, in which he was drinking a glass of red wine and looking glum:

We cannot see him starting at the weekend against Huddersfield, really.
Either Ragnar Klavan will come in or Jose Gomez will move to centre-back, allowing Trent Alexander-Arnold to play right-back.
