Joe Gomez likes Instagram comment slating Dejan Lovren following Liverpool 2-2 Sevilla

Defensive frailties once again got the better of Liverpool in the Champions League as they could only manage a 2-2 draw with Sevilla despite dominating large periods of the match at Anfield.

Much of the blame was pointed towards centre-back Dejan Lovren who had another horror showing in the middle of the defense. Lovren was in a large way responsible for both of Sevilla’s goal with his hesitation allowing both Wissam Ben Yedder and Joaquin Correa to score for Sevilla. To further compound the defensive misery, Liverpool’s Joe Gomez was sent off in injury time.

And if things weren’t bad enough on the pitch, Gomez also got embroiled in a controversy off the pitch when he appeared to like a comment from a fan criticizing his team-mate Dejan Lovren. While it is granted that Lovren’s performance deserved the stick from the fans, the fact that his own team-mate joined the fray is a sign of things that all is not well with the Reds defense.

(Video) Anthony Ralston cheering the crowd after his crunching tackle on Thiago Motta

Celtic’s European dreams did not kick off quite as they expected, as they were subjected to a harsh 5-0 hammering at the hands of Paris Saint Germain last night.

“We played like under-12s at times,” said manager Brendan Rodgers, whose men were defeated by strikes from Neymar, Mbappe, Cavani and a Mikael Lustig own-goal.

Despite the rout, the Hoops cannot be accused of failing to put their heart and soul into the game, and displaying maximum enthusiasm in this regard was Anthony Ralston.

The 18-year old, playing only his sixth senior game as a Celtic player, was given the massive job of man-marking the world’s most expensive footballer, Neymar.

Apart from performing that herculean task beautifully, the right-back also displayed typical Celtic aggression in the second half while leading a solo attack for his team, albeit unsuccessfully.

Unfazed by his effort being thwarted, Ralston simply rallied back into the game to crush PSG defender Thiago Motta’s foot during their immediate counter-attack.

Instead of apologizing to the referee for being booked, Ralston instead cheered up the crowd and sought even greater support from them.
