Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Dejan Lovren suffered a groin injury in Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Swansea on Saturday – and fans have had a mixed reaction to the news on Twitter.
Lovren, 27, played the full 90 minutes of the fixture but was confirmed to be injured by Klopp after the match.
He was joined in the injury room by Adam Lallana, who also sustained a groin injury in the game and was substituted early in the first half.
“Dejan has a groin problem,” Klopp said, as quoted on the Twitter account of Liverpool Echo reporter Neil Jones. “Hopefully it’s not serious. Adam felt it, tried again. Out of international duty.”

Some supporters on social media were happy Lovren would now get a rest ahead of the Merseysiders’ clash with Manchester United in two weeks time, while other fans claimed not to care about the defenders injury.
Here is a collection of the messages on Twitter.

The Liverpool ace has only just returned to the Reds starting line-up after recovering from flu, which kept him out of his side’s 5-1 win against Hull last weekend.
The Serbia centre-back has had a busy week after already being accused of breaking four laws in a carpool video for Liverpool’s official Television channel.
The stopper has played 83 times for the Merseyside outfit since his move from Southampton to Liverpool in 2014, scoring three goals in that time.
The Reds now face Manchester United, West Brom and Tottenham at home before traveling to Crystal Palace on the 29th of October.
