      Klopp expects him to be out for 2-3 weeks it seems. He also confirmed it was an injury from last season where he played through it, but it just got worse during the WC.

      All of this Lovren stuff totally missed my radar yesterday.

      So before the Torino game he was fit and raring to go and could play 30 minutes right there and then, but a day or so later he's crippled with pain and has been since the World Cup?

      Doesn't sound clever behaviour.

      Doesn’t sound good for Lovren no matter how you slice it. Think Klopp is doing a bit of protection here for him but I would now be worried that this is a recurring injury if he’s had to play through it before. That’s not good because it means it could crop up and affect him at any time. All of he sudden we have VVD and a bunch of injury prone alternatives. Maybe we should have been looking at CBs during the summer?

      I'm sorry but this whole 'hiding an injury so we wouldn't buy a CB' is complete fabrication.

      He'll be fit in 2 weeks, in no circumstances would we buy another CB because Lovren is injured. We have VvD, Klavan, Gomez, Matip and Phillips along with Lovren. 7 centre backs is too many and 2 weeks on the shelf won't change that. Screw your heads back on.

      Inside scoop folks.

      Messi signing next week, you heard it here first ;)

      Given that he likes to mouth off to the media (not too dissimilar to Mignolet), I hope he'll keep schtum when he comes back from injury and most likely finds himself on the bench behind Gomez. It's always bad news when you get injured but it's even worse news if you're a Liverpool player because Klopp has shown time and time again that if your replacement comes in and performs to expectations then it's a long road back for you in trying to reclaim that spot.

      He might feel upset but big deal. Work hard and try to win back your place Dejan because on the evidence of the last couple of weeks, Joe Gomez isn't going away anytime soon.

      I hope Klopp is not that kind of a jerk. You don't let an injury lose someone his starting job. Not only is that cheap, it also makes players think twice next time.

      I’m confused at what you are trying to say ?

      Cheap ? A jerk because he keeps a strong partnership together!

      No, because he'd take away Dejan's starting job because of his injury. That sets a terrible precedent. It's like if your wife goes to hospital for 4 weeks and when she comes back you have a new gal and say 'sorry' to her. You do that to a player and you should not wonder if he treats you 100% business.

      Give Lovren the chance to prove he's the man. Gomez will understand it. If Lovren struggles, Gomez can come back and Dejan might give it back to you with 110% effort and total loyality. But maybe I am oldschool here, football has become so dishonorable the last 20 years.

      You can do that, but next time Lovren leaves for a better offer you cannot blame him either. It becomes purely business. Most fans want loyal players but treat them like computer game avatars.

      Sorry but you’re dribbling nonsense - you don’t just play players out of loyalty , you play the best players available and right now that’s what Gomez is - if Lovren wants to play alongside VVD then he can prove he is worthy of that shirt. Teams giving spots out of loyalty are teams that don’t win

      Dejan will get his chance to challenge Gomez for starting XI. Just look at the busy schedule after the international break.

      But Gomez showed he does not deserve to be replaced that easy. Till he keeps this form it will be hard for Dejan to claim back his spot. But competition will drive you to work harder so this type of situations is exactly what we wont to see in our club.

      Didn't Robbo come in for the injured Moreno? Proved his worth and kept the place, Gomez doing the same, doesn't deserve to be dropped for Lovren.

      He shouldn't but rotation is inevitable with the crowded schedule. Lovren/Matip is a great 2nd pair to have so hopefully Dejan is up for a lesser role to benefit the team.

      Was it a mistake to put Alisson into the team then, surely that upset poor Karius and Mignolet, they didn't deserve that, oh hang on YES THEY FUCKING DID!!

      What are you talking about? It's not the NFL, football is fluid. Players come in and out of form &/or get injured. That's the whole idea of having a squad and competition for places. Dejan will get his chance and when he does it's up to him to prove he is the best option to play alongside VVD in the side but at the moment young Gomez is playing very very well and only a fool would take him out of the side for fear of upsetting Lovren despite his proclamations about being one of the best defenders in the world. There is nothing dishonourable about keeping Gomez in the side. Since Lovren was 'the starter' we've had a World Cup, a full pre-season which he was unable to be a part of (due to WC) and then an injury. Like I said, football is fluid. Lallana used to be the first name on the teamsheet before his injuries, should he also be returned instantly to the starting line-up now that he is fit again? Absolutely not, he needs to earn his place in the side same as everybody else.

      Even better, knowing Lovren will be returning after the international break, Gomez will probably step up another level :D
