'One of our own' - Tottenham fans react brilliantly on Twitter to Lovren's performance
By Aramide Oladipo
Tottenham supporters have taken to social media and responded brilliantly to Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren’s performance against their side on Sunday afternoon.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men produced a dominating display and came away with a 4-1 Premier League victory over the Reds at Wembley Stadium.
Spurs talisman Harry Kane scored a brace and attacking midfielders Dele Alli and Son Heung-Min also found themselves on the scoresheet.
However, it was Lovren’s disappointing performance which stood out as he was at fault for Spurs’ opening two goals.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp decided to remove the Croatian just after the half-an-hour mark but the damage had already been done.
