Liverpool receive Dejan Lovren injury boost ahead of Watford trip – report
Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren hasn't suffered knee ligament damage, according to Sky Sports report
Dejan Lovren hasn’t suffered knee ligament damage after the Liverpool centre-half picked up a nasty injury on Sunday, according to a Sky Sports report.
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 during Sunday’s 2-2 draw at Anfield.
Speaking at his post-match media conference following the stalemate on Merseyside, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was unable to shed light on the severity of the injury.
However, according to Sky Sports, a scan has revealed that Lovren hasn’t suffered knee ligament damage, although a gash on his leg did require five stitches.
The Croatia international is expected to be sidelined for a number of weeks as the bruising and swelling reduces.
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.
The Reds make the trip to in-form Watford on Sunday afternoon before Liverpool host leaders Leicester City at Anfield on Boxing Day.
