Liverpool fans react to Dejan Lovren’s performance in FA Cup draw at Shrewsbury

The Reds threw away a two-goal lead and now face a replay.

Liverpool had one foot in the FA Cup fifth round shortly after half time in their clash at League 1 outfit yesterday after Donald Love’s own goal put them 2-0 up.

The former Manchester United man’s blunder had Jurgen Klopp’s side cruising before Jason Cummings was introduced from the bench and the game turned on its head.

Cummings netted twice to snatch a replay for Sam Ricketts’ side who managed to wrestle control of the game back in a dramatic second half.

The goal which halved the deficit was a penalty but then the former Nottingham Forest striker evaded Dejan Lovren too easily to spark wild celebrations.

Lovren has been out of the side for a considerable period of time and some rustiness would be completely understandable but plenty of Liverpool fans on Twitter piled in with the criticism.

Without Virgil van Dijk next to him, Lovren looked shakier and there were some supporters calling for him to be offloaded this summer.

The consensus was that this was Lovren getting back to his old, unreliable self, but he seems likely to improve with greater match fitness and sharpness.
