Dejan Lovren.

Dejan Lovren nominated for November Player of the Month

Published Add your comment

Flash back to the start of Jurgen Klopp's reign at Liverpool. The German arrived on Merseyside to  a squad devoid of confidence and a number players who were deemed not good enough by fans.

One of those men would have been Dejan Lovren who, following a £20 million move from Southampton in the summer of 2014, had failed to live up to expectations.

A poor debut season and a slow start to this campaign, that saw him lose his starting spot to Mamadou Sakho, appeared to suggest his time at Anfield was coming to an end.

However, following the German manager's arrival and an injury to Sakho, Lovren has been handed a lifeline. One that he taken with both hands.

Good performances in games against Crystal Palace, Manchester City and Swansea City have earnt him a nomination for the Barclays' Player of the Month, and some people just can't believe it.


Here are the other nominations for Player of the Month

Jamie Vardy

The man of the moment and winner of October's award. Jamie Vardy scored three goals in three games during the month, including his record-breaking striker in the 1-1 draw with Manchester United.

Five goals and two assists in four games, Romelu Lukaku has been on fire for Everton. The Belgian forward scored in every match through the month and is just three goals behind Jamie Vardy in the race to be the golden boot winner. He also became the fourth youngest player to reach 50 Premier League goals.


Harry Kane

After a slow start to the season, Harry Kane is back and scored four goals in as many games during November. He scored the opener against Arsenal and bagged a brace in the 4-1 win over West Ham, to go with his strike against Aston Villa.
