Champions League: Lampard reveals Liverpool player that gave away 2 goals to Roma

Chelsea legend, Frank Lampard has slammed Liverpool star, Dejan Lovren following the Reds’ 5-2 Champions League win against Roma on Tuesday.
Jurgen Klopp’s men won 5-2 at Anfield in the first leg of their semi-final clash.

Liverpool conceded two late goals in the last 10 minutes to hand Roma a lifeline heading into the second leg next Wednesday.

Lovren was at fault for the first goal as the centre-half misjudged Radja Nainggolan’s pass that set up Edin Dzeko.

And Lampard hit out at the defender following Liverpool’s win, claiming Lovren needs to be more assured.

“It’s poor defending from Lovren here,” Lampard told BT Sport.

“I think he knows he’s in trouble, he doesn’t realise until too late though.

“He needs to run back earlier but he keeps running backwards.

“He needs to get sideways on and start running, he doesn’t.

“Edin Dzeko’s movement is good, the timing (of the pass) is great.

“I just think he could have made it more difficult but yes on a positive side the pass was great.

“That’s Champions League football at this level.

“One moment can change the aspect of the game,” he added.

The Reds travel to Rome next Wednesday for the second leg of the semi-final.
