Dejan Lovren Hilariously Gets Nutmegged Three Times In 20 Seconds
Liverpool beat Burnley 4-2 on Sunday to reduce the gap at the top of the table back to one point but it wasn't a great day for defender Dejan Lovren who got called out by the club's Instagram page in hilarious fashion.
The weirdest thing about Liverpool's win against Burnley on Sunday wasn't that a referee managed to not see a goalkeeper being fined or that Jurgen Klopp didn't need to blame the wind for anything but that Liverpool conceded twice.
Just over a year ago it would have been very understandable that Liverpool would have to score four times to win a game, Klopp's side marauding forward but being unable to defend was a staple of their style.
This season things have been completely different and heading into the game on Sunday the Reds had only conceded 15 goals in the Premier League all season.
However against Burnley they actually conceded twice including a rather controversial opener straight from a corner, when Alisson looked to have been fouled.
But if it was a bad day for the defenders on the pitch then it was just as bad for one of them who didn't manage to get on, Dejan Lovren.
The Croatian has had a lot of criticism in the last couple of years but this time he was embarrassed by his own team in an Instagram story video that shows him being nutmegged three times in 20 seconds:

Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip were preferred by Klopp to start in central defence but it wasn't their best day at the back, despite the three points.
James Tarkowski did seem to hold down the Reds' keeper as Ashley Westwood's corner kick flew straight in after six minutes but late on the defence was undone by the Clarets as Jóhann Gudmundsson made it 3-2.
The Reds' may have folded with two minutes to go of injury time but instead Sadio Mane scored his second of the game to make it 4-2.
Certainly Klopp and the fans would rather that the mistakes are left to pre-match warm up and when the attack score four goals.
