One in one out at the back for Liverpool.
Liverpool medics will continue to assess the fitness of centre-back Dejan Lovren after he was taken off at half time against Bournemouth on Wednesday night, the Daily Star reports.
The former Saints star was forced to be replaced by Mamadou Sakho after picking up a groin injury during the 3-1 victory over Championship high flyers Bournemouth in the Capital One Cup.
It was the sole negative on a night where Liverpool won 3-1 to book a Capital One Cup semi-final tie with Chelsea.
“We will just see and assess that,” he said.
“He had a little sort of nick in his groin and we will see how that is.”
By the same token Sakho was making his long awaited comeback since his last appearance against Middlesbrough back in September.
He is still not believed to be fully fit, but has been placed on standby in case his Croatian cohort is not able to take up his spot this weekend.
