The Foxes, of course, beat Newcastle United 5-0 last weekend and have also claimed the scalp of Tottenham Hotspur this season.

However, they struggled to break down the Reds at Anfield, with Sadio Mane scoring the first goal of the game. James Maddison did equalise but that was as a result of a poor piece of goalkeeping from Adrian, continuing to deputise for the injured Alisson Becker.

James Milner scored a late penalty to give the Reds all three points and Lovren enjoyed a genuinely exceptional display.

Per WhoScored, he tallied 57 touches throughout the game, and also had a pass completion rate of 88%, the highest of any Reds player to start the match.

Spectacularly, he also won a total of five aerial duels, one more than defensive partner Virgil van Dijk, and made two tackles, as well as eight clearances and two interceptions.

And fans were impressed with his performance.
