The France international has been ever-present in Jurgen Klopp’s side since the former Paris Saint-Germain defender recovered from a knee injury earlier this year.
Lovren endured a tough start to his Liverpool career after a disappointing first season at Anfield following his big-money £25m move from Southampton under Klopp’s predecessor, Brendan Rodgers.
However, the Croatian defender has started to rediscover his Southampton form alongside Sakho in the heart of the Liverpool defence.
And moving forward, former Liverpool striker Aldridge believes Lovren and Sakho must be Klopp’s first-choice centre-half partnership.
“It’s obvious from what we’ve seen that Mamadou Sakho and Dejan Lovren are our best pairing at centre back. They had one or two hairy moments but that happens to everybody,” Aldridge wrote on Liverpool Echo.
“It’s all about partnerships and being able to read each other’s game and we can see that starting to grow. Over the course of the two games I thought they were excellent.”
Liverpool lost 3-2 to Southampton at St Mary’s in the Premier League on Sunday after having led 2-0 at half-time before Klopp replaced Lovren with Martin Skrtel.
The Reds are in ninth place in the Premier League table and seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester City in the race to secure a place in next season’s Champions League.
