Liverpool fans hoping for Lovren and van Dijk partnership after Tuesday win

Liverpool were in lethal form on Tuesday night against Huddersfield Town, beating them 3-0 away from home in the English Premier League.

The Reds needed to win to put distance between themselves and fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, who have a difficult match against Manchester United tonight.

While players like Emre Can, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino stole the headlines for their goalscoring contributions, it was also a big night for the Liverpool defence.

It was the first clean sheet for Jurgen Klopp’s side since Boxing Day and perhaps surprisingly it came without new star signing Virgil van Dijk, who was on the bench, replaced by Dejan Lovren.

Supporters praised Lovren’s performance after the match and are now calling on the Croatian international to partner his new teammate ahead of Joel Matip.

Is a Lovren and van Dijk partnership the way forward to provide defensive stability in the coming weeks and months?
