The Merseyside club Liverpool are now preparing themselves for a bigger showdown as a trip to the Stamford Bridge has been scheduled for this night. The Reds were trauma regarding the fitness of their defenders, but now, they have received a huge boost as Dejan Lovren is now available for the game.
The defender missed Liverpool’s 4-1 win over Leicester City last weekend with a black eye but the swelling has since gone down and he is now fit to return as the Reds take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge tonight. Croatian centre-back Lovren trained with his Liverpool teammates yesterday and was snapped staring lovingly into the eyes of manager Jurgen Klopp.
Klopp is expected to recall Lovren, who was replaced by makeshift defender Lucas Leiva against Leicester.
Lucas was solid for most of that match, although he produced one horrific error which handed a goal on a plate to Foxes frontman Jamie Vardy.
