Reds react as Lovren starts v Manchester City at expense of fan favourite

Posted by

Jurgen Klopp has decided to field Joe Gomez at right-back today, with Dejan Lovren alongside Virgil van Dijk at centre-back.

Lovren hasn’t started a game in the Premier League yet, but Klopp thought it the right time to bring the World Cup semi-finalist back into the fold, at the expense of Trent Alexander-Arnold.

In fairness, Trent wasn’t at his best against Napoli midweek and could maybe do with a rest, considering he’s still only a teenager and has been an automatic starter for us so far.

Gomez has been sensational at centre-back and we can only hope he reproduces the form in a less favoured position.

He’ll be directly up against Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez, who will switch wings throughout the Anfield clash.

Here’s what Liverpool fans have made of the selection:
