Liverpool's Lovren fighting back in style after Spurs horror show, says Klopp

By Staff Reporter

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp claimed centre-back Dejan Lovren has responded positively in training to his nightmare display against Tottenham.

Klopp substituted the Croatia international after 31 minutes of Liverpool's 4-1 defeat to Spurs last Sunday. But the German insisted Lovren has kept his spirits up.

"Everything is okay. He's had a good week," Klopp said. "When I think about Dejan there are a lot more positive things than negatives. Yes, there was individual mistake from Dejan, but Joel Matip should have been much closer."

Klopp also confirmed Philippe Coutinho is a major injury doubt for his side's clash against Huddersfield today and he is facing a race to be fit for the Champions League match with Maribor next week.

Klopp said: "He had a little bit of problem with the adductor. It's not clear so far if he is out."
