Dejan Lovren had an absolute nightmare against Spurs at Wembley last weekend, leading to Jurgen Klopp hauling him off in the first half and the defender getting rinsed to pieces on social media.
Somehow, he retained his place for the visit of Huddersfield at Anfield today but an injury in the warm-up meant he had to be replaced by Ragnar Klavan.
A late change for #LFC: Dejan Lovren is replaced by Ragnar Klavan due to injury.
Ben Woodburn takes a place on the bench.

Of course, he was inevitably going to be destroyed following the news that he's pulled out of the squad. Here are some of the reactions:
Klavan smokes weed on his off days, i bet Dejan Lovren is rolling him blunts for postmatch, so they talk about how to fuck up Jurgens plans

The good news for Liverpool fans is that there's no way Lovren can try and play offside from a throw-in like he did last week, but the bad news is that Ragnar Klavan is not exactly a rock solid central defender himself.
