Echo's James Pearce reveals if the Reds need another centre-back after Lovren’s WC performances
- Liverpool Echo's correspondent reckons Liverpool have no need in new defenders
"I’m not surprised he hasn’t brought in another centre-back. Lovren was outstanding in the second half of last season and carried on that form at the World Cup. He will be part of the first choice combination with Van Dijk.
"Matip’s injury record is becoming a worry but Klavan and Gomez still provide decent cover. With Lovren only coming back next week, Gomez has a decent chance of starting against West Ham.
"It’s a big season for the young defender, who has all the attributes required to play centre-back having made most of his appearances for the club at right-back."
