Dejan Lovren deletes his Instagram account after abuse from Liverpool fans (Tweets)

There has been an immediate casualty following Liverpool’s shock 3-0 home defeat to West Ham on Saturday in the Premier League: Dejan Lovren’s Instagram account.

Lovren was singled out for special abuse from Liverpool supporters yesterday after his woeful performance for the Reds.

Lovren completely gifted the Hammers their second goal after inexplicably giving the ball away at the corner flag, allowing West Ham to capitalise, as Mark Noble finished off a quick move.

Amazingly, the 26-year-old Croatian actually had the perfect chance to redeem himself in the final minutes, but missed a free and easy header.

But the finger of blame can’t be solely pointed at Lovren – Philippe Coutinho was reckless in getting himself sent off for two yellow cards after just 53 minutes.

It should be noted that prior to the West Ham match, Lovren had been one of Liverpool’s best performers in the opening weeks of the season. However one shoddy showing was all it took for fans to start abusing their own again, and in response Lovren has shut down his Instagram account.

Below are tweets on the topic.
