Lovren picked up a hamstring injury in the 2-1 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup at the start of the month and has not featured since then. Liverpool played Fabinho in the center back role as they earned a barren draw against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League. Liverpool will also be without long term absentees Joe Gomez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Rhian Brewster.

Speaking in a press conference ahead of the Manchester United game, Klopp confirmed that Lovern will miss the clash, "Dejan is not in, Joe is not in, but I think pretty much all the rest are in training at least. Rhian Brewster is still only in little parts [of training], Ox in bigger parts but not ready to play. The rest have trained and will train with us, but there is still a little bit of time.

"Usually now I get the message that somebody is ill in the last three weeks, so I am still a bit nervous about that. But until now I didn’t hear anything."
