Latest Liverpool injury update: Jurgen Klopp on Dejan Lovren

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp discusses Dejan Lovren's injury after centre-half is stretchered off at Anfield

Jurgen Klopp says he is unsure about the severity of Dejan Lovren’s injury during Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion at Anfield on Sunday.

The Croatia international required oxygen on the pitch before he was carried off on a stretcher after a clash with West Brom midfielder Craig Gardner.

Liverpool centre-half Mamadou Sakho has only just returned to first-team training after he injured his knee during a 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace in November.

Speaking at his post-match media conference after Sunday afternoon’s 2-2 draw with the Baggies, Klopp was unable to shed light on the seriousness of Lovren’s injury setback.

“We don’t know too much, it’s a cut, we hope it’s not serious. We’re waiting for a scan,” Klopp is quoted as saying after the stalemate.

Lovren was initially out-of-favour under the former Borussia Dortmund manager after Klopp replaced Northern Irishman Brendan Rodgers in October.

The £25m signing came back into the Liverpool first-team after Sakho suffered a serious knee injury in a surprise defeat by Palace last month.

Lovren was nominated for the Premier League player of the month award for November after a string of promising performances.
