Dejan Lovren injury: Croat limps off after 11 minutes v Sunderland

Posted by

Liverpool simply cannot keep centre-halves fit.

Martin Skrtel has re-injured himself, and now Dejan Lovren could miss matches after limping off the field after 11 minutes today against Sunderland.

There was seemingly no collision for Lovren, but Jurgen Klopp had to bring on Kolo Toure early on in the Croat’s place.

Lovren had only just returned from a hamstring injury picked up in the first-leg of the League Cup semi-final, so the issue could potentially be a recurrence of that problem.

We’ll have to wait of course until word from the club regarding the seriousness of the issue, but with Skrtel out for three more week – it might now be Steven Caulker’s chance to get a continued run in the side.
