Are you tired of reading updates about Liverpool’s latest defensive injury setback? Well, tough luck, because here’s another one.

It seems that newly fit Dejan Lovren has suffered a setback this week. An old hamstring injury has flared up and it appears that he will be unavailable for when Liverpool take on West Ham on Monday.

This news comes hot on the heels of the announcement that Joe Gomez may need surgery on his leg after fracturing it back in March.

So Liverpool continues to wind down the winter in the same defensive crisis that it started in.

The good news is that new boy and recent defensive substitute Fabinho should be ready to fill in once again alongside Virgil van Dijk in defense when Liverpool travel to London Stadium to take on Manuel Pellegrini’s men in a match that could prove crucial after their unfortunate draw against Leicester City.
