When Liverpool signed Dejan Lovren from Southampton last summer it looked like a fine piece of business.
After all, the Croatia international had impressed at St Mary’s and looked every inch the quality centre-back Liverpool needed to solidify their back-line.
But things have not gone quite according to plan since then, with Lovren looking out of sorts and out of his depth many times this season.
Another example of that came on Saturday, when Liverpool hosted Crystal Palace at Anfield in a game that will always be remembered as the last home performance of Reds skipper and legend Steven Gerrard.
Liverpool ultimately lost the game 3-1, with Adam Lallana’s goal cancelled out by strikes from Jason Puncheon, Wilfried Zaha and Glenn Murray. And one player who came in for plenty of criticism for that capitulation was Lovren.
After the game we took to Twitter to see what Liverpool fans thought of the 25-year-old’s performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
Oh man! Lovren is so awful! He's not good enough. We want our money back!!! #LFC— KOJO (@OfficialKojo) May 16, 2015
Lovren is so bad it's frightening. Saying that, 90% of the squad are awful, the manager included— Ian Richards (@Ian_Richards) May 16, 2015
More than happy for this to be Lovren's last ever home match as well. Awful buy. #LFC— Ashley Giles (@Ashley_Giles) May 16, 2015
Haven't seen a CB as bad as Dejan Lovren ever since Argentine Paletta. Lovren's officially THE worst. #LFC— Stevie G (@Benthereds) May 17, 2015

Lots of attention on Lovren for being terrible yesterday, but Moreno was crap too. Can as well.— Ste H (@stehoare) May 17, 2015
if Lovren is still in our team next season Just prepare for 8th position Rubbish— #ThanksStevie (@Shadyy_) May 16, 2015
We really do need to get rid of Lovren in the summer. He means well, wants to be good enough, just isn't. I was very wrong about him.— Cam (@RedFromNZ) May 17, 2015
