Lovren awful yet again.
Liverpool won 3-0 at Manchester United last season, but the Red Devils avenged that defeat on Sunday by claiming victory by the same scoreline, with Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Robin van Persie finding the net.
Brendan Rodgers tried an interesting 3-5-1-1 formation at Old Trafford, but it did not work as his side failed to win for a third consecutive game in all competitions.
Here’s how Liverpool rated at Old Trafford:
GK: Brad Jones – 6/10
Jones didn’t do much wrong on this rare start. He perhaps could have done better with Rooney’s goal, but he did produce an excellent stop to deny Van Persie late on.
CB: Glen Johnson – 5/10
Rodgers’ decision to play Johnson at centre-back was strange. As it turned out, it didn’t really matter, because he limped off with an injury after just 25 minutes.
CB: Dejan Lovren – 4/10
Dreadful yet again. He made a mess of his clearance and then played Van Persie onside for United’s third goal, which killed the game.
CB: Martin Skrtel – 6/10
The pick of a very poor defensive bunch.
