Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp makes injury admission in wake of Bournemouth win ● News Now ● #LFC

Jurgen Klopp admits it's too early to assess Dejan Lovren after the centre-back was taken off during Liverpool's 3-0 win over Bournemouth Liverpool went into Saturday evening's showdown at Anfield knowing they had the opportunity to put the pressure on second-placed Manchester United

And they got off to the best possible start when Sadio Mane converted the rebound after his initial effort was saved in the seventh minute Second-half goals from Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino put Liverpool out of sight and ensured the deficit to United is now just a single point Liverpool's day was not perfect though with Lovren limping out of the match seven minutes from time with an injury Speaking post-match, Jurgen Klopp admitted it was too early to determine the extent of the Croatia international's issue but remained optimistic "I didn’t see the knock," he said

"I would love if it would be because of a ‘knock’ rather than a strain or tear or whatever I have no clue "He felt something but I didn’t speak to him afterwards, I only saw that he was limping "We made a change because we could make that change – we had a centre-half on the bench Hopefully it is not too serious, of course, but I cannot say more now

" Klopp will be hoping Lovren is fit for the remainder of the campaign after he forged a solid centre-back partnership with Virgil van Dijk Liverpool have four more Premier League games to go, as well as a Champions League semi-finals tie against Roma
