In football, one game can be the difference between a player becoming a hero or a villain, and for Dejan Lovren, the Croatian international definitely falls into the latter category.
📋 Here’s the predicted #LFC team to face Chelsea in the 5th round of the FA Cup tomorrow night.

The former Southampton defender was ridiculed to no end by Liverpool fans on Saturday night following his trainwreck of a performance against Watford which saw Jurgen Klopp’s side lose their first league game of the season and snap their incredible unbeaten run, the second-best in English football history.
Should Dejan Lovren be sold this summer?
And with Liverpool playing Chelsea tonight, a handful of fans on social media were keen on Lovren for being left out of the starting XI as the Reds aim to be only the second team in English history to win the treble.
Here’s what Liverpool supporters had to say about Lovren being dropped for Chelsea on Twitter…
Lovren? Please no

Lovren? This is obviously your fake line up, drop the real line up mate.

I’m not sure about Lovren

Lovren has hardly featured for the Reds this season, with the defender making just 14 appearances this campaign as stats from Transfermarkt show.
