Dejan Lovren is Liverpool’s crossbar master!
The Croatian won a fun competition filmed at Melwood recently, in which Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Gini Wijnaldum and Mo Salah battled to see who could avoid the embarrassment of loser’s press-ups!
It was Salah who lost out, after Oxlade-Chamberlain nailed his sudden death effort!
Mo completed his obligatory press-ups after falling to the ground in disappointment.
The Egyptian will start this evening, as will Wijnaldum in the middle – but Lovren will only get a spot on the bench with Joel Matip Virgil van Dijk’s regular partner right now.
Oxlade-Chamberlain is not yet ready for first-team action and there’s part of us which reckons he might not actually feature until pre-season, sadly.
But seeing him in such good spirits is great, nonetheless.
A dramatic crossbar challenge, with a special press-up forfeit for the loser. 👀🤣 pic.twitter.com/A6OpSCiHzb
