Klopp confirms Lovren injury

Klopp confirms Lovren injury Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Dejan Lovren sustained a hamstring injury during last night’s FA Cup defeat against Wolves. Lovren limped off just six minutes into the tie and was replaced by Ki-Jana Hoever, who became Liverpool’s third youngest debutant with an impressive showing from the bench. Now, Klopp has revealed that Lovren faces a spell on the sidelines as he overcomes his latest setback, but was unable to say when he thought the Croatian defender would return. With Virgil van Dijk missing yesterday’s clash through injury as well, Klopp may have to turn to his fringe players for Liverpool’s upcoming game against Brighton, before assessing his options in the build-up to a home game against Crystal Palace. The injury comes at an untimely period for Liverpool, as they look to bounce back from their first Premier League defeat of the season at Manchester City, and get back to winning ways to ensure they remain at the top of the league.

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren suffered a hamstring injury during Monday's 2-1 defeat to Wolves in the third round of the FA Cup, manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed.

Lovren was one of just two players retained in Klopp's starting XI from last Thursday's defeat to Premier League title rivals Manchester City but he pulled up during the early stages at Molineux.

It meant 16-year-old Dutch defender Ki-Jana Hoever was introduced, becoming Liverpool's youngster ever FA Cup player.

Hoever played alongside defensive midfielder Fabinho at the heart of Klopp's defence as goals from Raul Jimenez and Ruben Neves saw Wolves through, and the youngster's countryman Virgil van Dijk is now the Reds' only fit senior centre-back as Joe Gomez (broken leg) and Joel Matip (fractured collarbone) remain in rehabilitation.

Every game a final for Liverpool - Lovren.
Liverpool are six points clear at the top of the Premier League but Dejan Lovren wants the Reds to treat every match like it is a final.
