Liverpool media round-up: Reds await Lovren injury news; Klopp on Mignolet howler after draw

Anfield Night

A selection of the latest stories in the media involving Liverpool Football Club this Monday morning.

Divock Origi's late equaliser secured a 2-2 draw for Liverpool against West Bromwich Albion in a feisty Premier League encounter at Anfield yesterday. 

Jordan Henderson opened the scoring before Craig Dawson capitalised on a Simon Mignolet howler. Jonas Olsson had given the Baggies a second-half lead before Origi's deflected effort secured a point.

In his post-match press conference, manager Jurgen Klopp has said he takes the blame for Mignolet's costly error that gave the visitors a foothold in the game. 

He is quoted in the Liverpool Echo, saying: “I said to Simon at half time, 'if somebody says it is your fault, you can say it's not true, it's my fault.' Because I want a keeper who helps. I want a keeper who comes out and tries everything, with 20 players around him, he tried but didn't get the ball for the first goal.

“The disallowed goal was offside and the next one I will have to see again. It was at the short (near) post, usually it is not the goalkeeper's responsibility. We have people there who have to make the header and defend this."

The match also saw another injury for the Reds with Dejan Lovren stretchered off in the second half after  being on the end of a Craig Dawson challenge.

Lovren left Anfield on crutches with Klopp quoted by the official Liverpool website saying that the defender will have a scan today to determine the extent of the injury. 

“We don’t know too much about it. It’s a cut, as everybody could see in the dressing room.

“We hope it’s not too serious, but we have to wait for the scan. We have to wait overnight to see if it becomes swollen or not.

“I spoke to him and he felt not too bad. I saw the situation and anything could happen in that situation."

Liverpool are to find out their Europa League opponents this lunchtime as the draw for the last 32 of the competition takes place in Nyon.

The Reds are seeded for the draw after finishing top of Group B, the BBC reports.
