Liverpool fans react to Dejan Lovren’s performance against Everton

Liverpool made history tonight against Everton.

The Reds took their unbeaten run to a record 32 matches, which is the most in the club’s history. And they did it in style, beating their city rivals 5-2. Divock Origi was on the scoresheet twice, whilst Sadio Mane, Xherdan Shaqiri and Georginio Wijnaldum all scored a goal apiece.

Is Dejan Lovren underrated?





However, not everything was rosy. The Reds conceded two goals, meaning that another clean sheet flew out of the window. They have now not conceded in just four out of 24 matches this term. As such, someone needs to take the blame for the defensive frailty.

Tonight, it was Dejan Lovren who took the brunt of the fans’ wrath, with many taking to Twitter to slam the Croatia international in the first half.

It certainly wasn’t the best of nights defensively for the £18m-valued 30-year-old – as per Transfermarkt. He should shoulder the blame for both of the Toffees’ strikes having initially failed with a challenge in the box that allowed Michael Keane to score and then missed a chance to intercept a cross that Richarlison headed in.

No clues: Can you name the season these iconic Liverpool images belong to?

Which season does this iconic Liverpool image belong to?

His display had fans looking at alternatives, and it seems that Joe Gomez’s stock has certainly risen after the former Lyon man’s showing.

It is hard to see how Joe Gomez’s introduction to the side would sort out Liverpool’s defensive woes. In 14 appearances so far, he has seen 15 goals conceded, and has also had his suspect moments.

There was at least one positive moment for the former Southampton defender. He laid the ball on a plate for Divock Origi’s second goal, and he did at least get a fair amount of praise from the fans for that.

At least it wasn’t all bad.

Meanwhile, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain reveals who the leaders are in the Liverpool dressing room.
