Liverpool fans have responded brutally to Dejan Lovren’s abysmal display in Sunday’s 4-1 defeat to Tottenham at Wembley.
The Croatian was primarily at fault for the Reds going 2-0 down within the first 15 minutes, and was subsequently replaced by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the 31st minute.
Lovren’s first error came in the fourth minute when he failed to track the run of Harry Kane, who was granted the space to slot home with ease. 1-0.
The defender was punished again minutes later when he missed a simple header to allow Kane acres of space to start an attack that eventually led to Heung-Min Son doubling his side’s lead.
Despite pulling a goal back through Mohamed Salah before half-time, Jurgen Klopp’s men were guilty of more poor defending later in the match and shipped two more goals.
Reds were in no mood to pull punches after the game, with many eager to see Lovren dropped from the team.
There were also requests that Sunday’s horror show be his last game in a Liverpool shirt.
Something has to change, without doubt. Now is the time to give young Joe Gomez a run in the time at centre-back.
Here’s what supporters had to say…
We’ve known Lovren is shit for the past 3 years, yet he still starts? Why did they target only 1 CB in the whole world and not have a plan B

Don’t like having a pop at players but I never want to see lovren in a Liverpool shirt again. Gomez & Matip at CB for now!

I think Joel Matip is a decent defender but it isn’t showing because of what he has to play with. Lovren is completely useless.

If only we could have somehow predicted, based on multiple years of evidence, that Dejan Lovren isn’t fit to play for Liverpool.

Where do I go to sacrifice my kidney and make sure Lovren never plays for Liverpool football club again?

I said Lovren is our worst defender in history but nobody listened to me. People laughed when I said Kyrgiakos was better.

If Lovren starts again for #LFC, I’m going to start questioning the mental capacity of Jürgen Klopp.

Think that should be the end at Liverpool for Lovren and Migs they have continuously let us down and cost us games it’s the players to blame
— Mark Lumsden (@lfclumo) October 22, 2017
Conceded 2 goals from set pieces and 2 goals because of Lovren’s mistakes. Our problems sums up! #LFC

Lovren really is all the bad bits of Skrtel without the post concussion moments of pure dominance. Worst CB I’ve seen for us.

Genuinely believe in all being given a real chance, but how many more do #FSG, Mignolet, Lovren, Can need before you say “not good enough”
