The news on Dejan Lovren’s injury doesn’t look too bad, thankfully, according to an exclusive report from hns-cff.
They claim that Croatia’s team doctor Dr. Nemec has contact Liverpool’s medical department, who assured him that ‘there was no structural damage’ to Lovren’s knee, and that the player could be playing once again in two to three weeks’ time.
When Lovren left Anfield via a stretcher on Sunday, hands on his head, it looked for all the world that another Liverpool player had picked up a season ending knee problem.
Joe Gomez and Danny Ings are already out until the summer, while Mamadou Sakho’s sat on the sidelines for two months following a knee injury of his own.
The Frenchman is expected to come in for Lovren next weekend at Watford, but if the Croat really is available in around a fortnight, he’ll be able to play a part in our congested upcoming schedule. Come January, we’ve multiple Premier League games to play alongside an FA Cup 3rd round and a League Cup semi-final double-header.
Yesterday, Dejan Lovren posted a disgruntled Instagram message about the injury, but it looks like he’ll be back early in the new year.
