Liverpool continued their excellent recent form on Saturday with a dominant 3-0 win at home to Bournemouth in the English Premier League.
Goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino book-ended Mohamed Salah’s 40th goal of the season to provide the victory and maintain momentum ahead of their crucial UEFA Champions League semi-final on April 24th.
It wasn’t all positive coming out of the match however, with fans left sweating on the fitness of Dejan Lovren after he was substituted off seven minutes from time.
As of this morning, the only update we have on the potential injury is Jurgen Klopp’s comments confirming he was limping and felt a problem.
Whether it’s a knock or a muscle problem of some sort is unclear.
It demonstrates how highly fans now think of Lovren that they’re worried about his injury status ahead of important matches. It was only a few months ago that some believed his career at Anfield could be over.
Will the player be fit for the upcoming Roma encounters?
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…
If ever there was an indication of the change in fortunes of our defence and a Particular player, it's this, people worried that Lovren could be out injured #LFC

Such is the level of Lovren's rise I'm incredibly worried he's seriously injured and we'll miss him. Who'd have imagined that 6 months ago #LFC

Any news on Lovren ? We need him for Roma match. Can’t afford to lose him at all. #LFC

The only downside to an otherwise perfect day was the injury to Lovren. He's been excellent recently and we cannot afford to lose him. #LFC
