Liverpool manager gives positive update on Lovren injury

Phew. Well it's some relatively positive news, at least, on the Dejan Lovren injury front, as the boss has confirmed that it doesn't look too serious for the Croatian centre back.

Lovren had looked fine throughout the first 30 minutes, before receiving some treatment and going through a stretching routine with the LFC physio staff whilst Ake was going off.

But he was taken off 5 minutes later for Trent Alexander-Arnold. It was another blow that the Reds didn't need whilst Matip is still injured.

Post-match though, the manager provided some fairly positive news. He said: "As always we don’t know exactly but it doesn’t look serious.

"It looks like a little cramp. That’s what I think at the moment but I don’t know 100 percent.

"He felt something, he told us. He wanted to get through to half time, receive treatment and carry on but we said no and stopped it there.

"That’s the status quo when you have these kind of things in this moment of the season.

"It’s similar to Gini and Lallana as it’s not serious but serious to keep them out so now we have two days to make sure they can go again."

So, much like with Gini and Adam Lallana, it was simply a precaution, and hopefully we'll see further good news once he's had his scan.
