Liverpool centre-half thanks supporters for a great atmosphere at Anfield
Dejan Lovren hailed Liverpool “great” performance and win after the Reds left it late to beat Swansea City in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday.
The Swans looked to be progressing to the quarter-finals of the League Cup after Marvin Emnes scored a second-half opener at Anfield.
However, substitute Mario Balotelli came on and scored his second goal of the season with four minutes of normal time remaining.
Swansea defender Federico Fernandez was sent off in injury-time before Lovren headed a dramatic winner with the fourth-round tie on the brink of extra-time.
And the Croatia international, who completed a £20m move to the Reds from Southampton, took to Instagram to praise his team-mates after the victory.
“Great win yesterday. Great perfomance from everyone. Great atmosphere! Well done lads. #YNWA,” Lovren wrote on Instagram.
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard was quick to praise goal-scorers Balotelli and Lovren after the 2-1 win.
“Well done lads @mb459 @dejanlovren06” Gerrard posted on Instagram.
