Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter are trolling Liverpool's Dejan Lovren over his performance against England this afternoon.

Spurs hitman Harry Kane grabbed an 85th-minute winner as Gareth Southgate's side beat Croatia 2-1 at Wembley, after being 1-0 behind.

It was the Liverpool centre-back who was meant to be marking Kane, but the 25-year-old evaded the big defender to convert a Ben Chilwell cross and relegate the Croats from the Nations League in the process.

Lovren endured a horrific performance against Tottenham and Kane a little over a year ago, when Reds boss Jurgen Klopp hauled him off after just 30 minutes.

 

The 29-year-old then sparked something of a feud back in May by calling the Lilywhites marksman 'Mr Touch' - a reference to the controversial goal that Kane was given as he bid to keep chase with Mo Salah in the Premier League's Golden Boot stakes.

If Lovren put a foot wrong tonight, fans of the North London club were always going to jump all over it - and here is how some of them have reacted:
