Liverpool FC crashed to a morale-crushing 3-0 defeat to West Ham at home. The Reds’ performance was littered with defensive errors as Dejan Lovren returned to his disastrous form once again. Unsurprisingly, he was the pick of the players that bore the brunt of the Reds’ fans frustration on twitter.

Liverpool had kept three clean sheet going into the West Ham game, and the line-up deployed by Brendan Rodgers reeked of a ‘safety-first’ approach with 7 defensive players in the line-up that included Emre Can playing the furthest in midfield and Milner coming deep.

However, an early goal undid the plan. All three goals conceded by Liverpool FC were down to individual error, with the pick of the one coming from Dejan Lovren who was labelled as a potential a world classa defender by Rodgers before the game.

Lovren held on to the ball for far too long near the touchline, and was duly pocket picked by West Ham forward Manuel Lanzini. The Hammers capitalized on the mistake and went onto score their second of the game.

Liverpool FC fans were, understandably, not too pleased with the performance. And Dejan Lovren got some special mention for obvious reason.

 

 

Brendan Rodgers’ tactics and his selection also came under fire from the fans. Rodgers chose to change the formation after half-time that saw the Reds line up with 3 centre-backs, 1 defensive midfielders and 2 wingbacks. Liverpool FC were already trailing two nil to the away side, who had just one forward in their line up.

 

 

 

 

Liverpool’s performance as a whole was disappointing as per Rodgers. And the fans seems to agree.
