The talkSPORT host and boyhood Red reflects on Thursdays 2-1 defeat to Man City which blew the title race wide open again
Liverpool will not win the Premier League, or any major trophies with Dejan Lovren in defence, according to a fuming Micky Quinn.
The talkSPORT host and boyhood Reds fan believes Jurgen Klopp got his tactics wrong in Thursdays 2-1 defeat to Manchester City, saying the midfield-three the manager picked are also not good enough for the top level.
City blew the title race back wide open with a brilliant victory in a chaotic game at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday night.
Strikes from Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane ended Liverpools unbeaten run and reduced the gap at the top to just four points.
It was a frustrating game for the Reds, who had plenty of chances to score but overall looked a fraction off the pace compared to the defending champions.
Lovren, who believes he is one of the best defenders in the world and who talked up the teams chances of going the whole season unbeaten ahead of the game, in particular produced an error-strewn performance.
And Quinn believes the Croatian, together with midfielders Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum are just not good enough.
“The best team won on the night,” the former Newcastle striker said on Fridays Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.
“I think Jurgen Klopp got it wrong tactically with those three midfield players.
“At the very highest level that midfield wont win anything, and with Lovren at the back they wont win anything either.
“He might have been in the World Cup final, but he wouldnt be in my Liverpool team.
“Van Dijk must have got him out of trouble about seven or eight times last night, covering for him.
“Even in the last seconds I nearly put my head through the television, because he kept making mistakes under no pressure, and that just sums him up.”
