The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are fearing the worst…
Liverpool have seriously struggled since the turn of the year, with Jurgen Klopp’s title challenge seemingly going up in smoke in recent weeks.
Their latest defeat, a 2-0 loss against Hull City, summed up their problems perfectly – with a defensive horror show on display at the KC Stadium.
Unfortunately for the Liverpool fans in the Tavern, though, their defensive issues are showing no sign of dissipating. As per the Mirror, central defender Dejan Lovren – who missed the game against Hull City through injury – has yet to be confirmed fit for the Tottenham clash.
The Mirror are reporting that he is facing a late assessment to determine whether he will be fit, leaving the Reds, including Jurgen Klopp, ‘sweating’ on his availability.
This has come as a huge blow to the Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern give how vital Lovren has been this season. Despite a slow start to life at Anfield, Lovren has really impressed since the arrival of Jurgen Klopp.
Lovren has made 20 starts this season, and alongside Joel Matip has formed a key part of Liverpool’s defensive proceedings.
Jurgen Klopp just can’t seem to catch a break at present, with key players including Coutinho, Sadio Mane and now Lovren all being unavailable at one point or another over the last few weeks.
