Dejan Lovren has handed Liverpool a boost ahead of Wednesday night’s clash against Manchester City at Anfield.

The Croatia international missed Sunday’s League Cup final at Wembey as the former Southampton defender recovered from an illness.

Lovren hasn’t featured for Liverpool since their 1-0 win at Stoke City in the League Cup semi-final in January after the centre-half injured his hamstring.

However, the 26-year-old trained with his Liverpool team-mates at Melwood on Tuesday evening as Lovren geared up for the visit of the new League Cup holders.

Lovren wrote on his Instagram page: “In Life, many things don’t go according to plan. If u fall, get back up. If u stumble, regain ur balance. #neverstop”

Brazil international Philippe Coutinho cancelled out Fernandinho’s opener at Wembley before City were 3-1 winners in the penalty shootout after the South American playmaker, Lucas Leiva and Adam Lallana missed their spot-kick attempts.
