Lovren shocker highlights Klopp?s defensive woes

While Dejan Lovren had the humiliation of being hauled off by Jurgen Klopp after just over half an hour against Spurs at Wembley, the defender’s dismal performance only further highlighted the problems Liverpool are having at the back.

In what was a horrendous showing in the capital by Liverpool, losing 4-1 to a Tottenham team that looked on a different level to them from the start to the finish of the game, Lovren rightly found himself the man singled out for criticism by fans, pundits and his manager. The Croatian is still yet to win over the Liverpool fans despite now being in his fourth season at the club, and this performance won’t have helped.

Things started going badly for Lovren as early as the fourth minute. Having collected a throw-in returned to him, Spurs right back Kieran Trippier’s hopeful ball over the top became a sensational pass thanks to a remarkable Lovren misjudgement. The defender attempted to catch Harry Kane offside, seemingly unaware Joe Gomez was playing him on, with the Tottenham striker making the most of his chance to run towards the Liverpool goal and grab the first of his two strikes. If that was embarrassing for Lovren, his second mistake was downright horrific.

Hugo Lloris’ long throw should have been returned relatively easily by Lovren, only for the 28-year old to attempt to outmuscle Kane and end up watching as the ball sail tamely over his head before being collected again by the England striker who then set up Son Heung-Min for Spurs’ second goal. While the hosts didn’t manage to score again during Lovren’s remaining time on the field, by the 31st minute, Klopp had seen enough to take the defender off and replace him with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, capping off one of the worst days of the centre back’s Liverpool career since his £20m arrival from Southampton.

As well as highlighting just why so many feel Spurs have a genuine chance of winning the title this season, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men priced at around 9/1 with the latest football betting to lift the title this year, this game also showed just why Liverpool, well, aren’t. Lovren might have been at fault – twice – this time, but the defending throughout this season has not been that of a team that will be able to compete for the title. Conceding 16 goals from the opening nine games of the Premier League season, Simon Mignolet’s performance will be another concern for Klopp and stands a further evidence that their issues lie deeper than Lovren.

All in all, this was not a good day at the office for Liverpool. For Klopp, while there is no doubt he still has the support of the majority of the club’s fans, questions are beginning to be asked as to whether the German is in fact the man to lead Liverpool back to the top of English football. The club’s performance in the Champions League this season is certainly a move in the right direction, but unless Klopp can sort out his defensive problems, there is certainly no guarantee Liverpool will be playing in European football’s top competition next year.

EFL clubs in favour of closing summer transfer window early

EFL clubs have indicated they are in favour of an early closure to the summer transfer window from next season.

The decision was taken following a summit of all 72 clubs on Thursday, and will be subject to further discussions before it is put to a formal vote in February.

The EFL is set to follow the Premier League after its clubs agreed to close the window the day before the start of the 2018-19 season earlier this month.

The EFL’s proposal however, would continue to allow the signing of players on loan until August 31.

The indication by the EFL teams to introduce a shorter window for player transfers follows debate about the uncertainty caused to managers and players with activity still ongoing once the season has started.

“Today was all about understanding a direction of travel in what is a hugely emotive matter, not only for clubs and managers but supporters as well,” EFL chief executive Shaun Harvey said.

“The clubs have been clear in their mandate and we will now go away and look to develop a set of proposals before moving this matter on to the next stage, which would be a formal vote in order to change our regulations.”

The 72 clubs also discussed, and opted against, using more than three substitutes during a match, but they will next year vote on a change of policy regarding the fielding of full-strength teams in the closing stages of a season.

A statement from the EFL read: “Clubs were asked to support the implementation of guidance on the following basis: ‘From the fourth Thursday in March, any team sheet for a League game should include at least 10 outfield players who featured on the team sheet for the League game before.’

“Clubs indicated they were in support of amending the policy guidance and a formal vote will now take place at the February Club Meeting.”
