Twitter reacts to Dejan Lovren’s performance against Watford

It was a night to forget for Liverpool fans, even for the players as a determined Watford made a mockery of the club’s unbeaten run.

The stars aligned perfectly for the Hornets as they made short work of a lethargic Liverpool side. In a match where a number of players failed to turn up, some familiar names cropped up more often than not.

Dejan Lovren, starting in place of  Joe Gomez once again took the brunt of blame as Liverpool fans lashed out at the Croatian defender.

To be fair, none of the goals was his fault. At least not directly. Granted, he could have done better for the first, but you get the feeling that the player’s reputation takes precedence over objectivity.

Lovren is a soft target, given his past transgressions and found himself on the receiving end again. A number of Liverpool fans took to Twitter to lambast the player’s performance. His case will not have been helped by Troy Deeney admitting that Watford targetted the Croatian as the weak link in the Reds defence.

Ironical considering it was Virgil van Dijk whose mistake led to Ismaila Sarr’s second of the night and Trent Alexander-Arnold, whose misplaced pass led to Watford’s third.

Ultimately, it is up to one personally to take stock of whether the Croatian should take the blame or not.

We look at some of the reactions on Twitter below.
