Lovren Missing From Training Ahead of City Clash

Firmino was present, but training away from the main group.

It’s all hands on deck for Liverpool, as the Reds try to finish their last 10 games as strong as possible to ensure Champions League qualification. Or, at least it should be, but—surprise—injuries continue to be a constant source of worry for the Merseyside giants.

Dejan Lovren has missed the last several weeks with various, nagging problems, forcing Lucas Leiva and Ragnar Klavan into action as replacements. Now, it looks likely that Liverpool will enter their most difficult remaining fixture (on paper anyway), an away clash with Manchester City, without their preferred center back pairing. The Croatian defender was missing from morning training today, according to The Echo.

And of course, captain Jordan Henderson continues his spell out, with another bout of plantar fasciitis, as does Daniel Sturridge with an unspecified hip injury (sounds familiar).

However, some potentially positive news came in the form of Roberto Firmino, who trained, but not with the main squad. The attacking-midfielder-turned-striker picked up a knock late on against Arsenal, and did not feature in the come-from-behind win against Burnley.
