Dejan Lovren is in contention to make his first start of the season for Liverpool tonight.

Lovren has not featured for his club since he helped Croatia reach the World Cup final.

 

The defender has been out of action with a stomach problem, and is now on course to return.

He could feature in Liverpool's Carabao Cup tie with Chelsea this evening.

Manager Jurgen Klopp provided the update at his press conference on Tuesday.

 

Liverpool paid Southampton £20 million to sign Lovren in 2014 and after a poor start he has gradually got better and better.

The Reds have not missed Lovren, thanks to the impressive form of Joe Gomez, who has established himself as a regular alongside Virgil van Dijk.
