Liverpool will look to get back to winning ways in the Premier League when they host Huddersfield Town at Anfield on Saturday, but Reds fans are worried that Dejan Lovren will start against the Terriers.
The centre-back has struggled for form this season and he was taken off after just 31 minutes in the 4-1 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley last Sunday following another miserable performance at the back.
However, Jurgen Klopp doesn’t have a huge selection of centre-back options available to him right now with Joe Gomez and Ragnar Klavan the only real choices to slot in alongside Joel Matip at the heart of the defence, meaning the Croatian could take his place in the team once again for the visit of David Wagner’s side.
Liverpool supporters were quick to have their say on the out of form 28-year-old via social media, and while some said they had a “terrible feeling” he would be playing, others said “if Lovren starts I won’t bother watching”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
yeah, Lovren must be dropped

Worrying if Lovren and Mignolet do both start today. Klopp needed to show that performances like theirs are not acceptable at Liverpool.

This is unacceptable. Klopp must be smoking something

Criminal if he starts today. Gomez in at CB. Home game perfect chance to give him a try. He’s U21 captain! Can’t be any worse. Try him
