Liverpool have received a huge bit of good news over Dejan Lovren.

Dejan Lovren of Liverpool walks off during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool at Wembley Stadium on October 22, 2017 in London, England.

Liverpool announced via their Twitter account on Thursday that Dejan Lovren has returned to full training.

The 28-year-old was subbed off on 82 minutes during the Reds' 3-0 demolition of Bournemouth at the weekend, prompting concern over his fitness.

The Croatia international was outstanding over two legs as Liverpool thrashed Manchester City 5-1 on aggregate to reach the semi-final of the Champions League earlier this month.

With the first-leg visit of Roma to come next week, manager Jurgen Klopp needed Lovren available to partner Virgil van Dijk again, and that seems like it will be the case.

As a result, fans of the Anfield club are breathing a sigh of relief over the update.

The reaction of Lovren's fitness boost speak volumes for how important he has become for Liverpool.

He has not had a brilliant season overall, but his performance home and away against Pep Guardiola's side is evidence that he's a massive player for Klopp at the moment and fans must be delighted to be celebrating him instead of slating him for once.
