Jamie Carragher singled out Dejan Lovren for special praise after Liverpool eased to a 1-0 victory over Leicester City at Anfield.

The Reds started with an unfamiliar centre-half pairing of Dejan Lovren and Mamadou Sakho following injury to first-choice defender Martin Skrtel during their 3-0 loss to Watford last weekend.

However, Lovren and Sakho managed to keep Leicester’s in-form duo Riyad Mahrez and James Vardy quiet as Christian Benteke scored a second-half winner for the Merseyside outfit at Anfield.

Former Liverpool defender Carragher, who has been working as a pundit for Sky Sports since announcing his retirement in 2013, took to Twitter to single out Lovren for special praise.

Liverpool hoisted themselves up to eighth place in the Premier League table thanks to their 1-0 victory over the Foxes.
