Some Liverpool fans have criticised manager Jurgen Klopp for starting Dejan Lovren against RB Salzburg in the Champions League.

The Reds took on Salzburg away from home in Champions League Group E this evening.

Lovren started the match despite having suffered an injury against Bournemouth away from home at the Vitality Stadium in the Premier League at the weekend.

The 30-year-old Croatia international central defender started the game against the Cherries, but he was taken off after just 40 minutes.

Klopp included the former Southampton star against Salzburg, but the defender suffered a knock to his knee and was taken off after 53 minutes.

According to WhoScored, the former Lyon central defender played one key pass, had a pass accuracy of 82.2%, took 53 touches, and made four clearances.

Some Liverpool were not happy with Klopp for including Lovren in the starting lineup this evening despite his injury concerns and have criticised the German manager on Twitter.
