According to the Liverpool Echo, Dejan Lovren will be fit for Liverpool’s trip to Wales to face Swansea City in the Premier League on Saturday. 

Lovren missed his second Premier League game of the season against Hull City after a viral infection ruled him out. Ragnar Klavan covered for the former Southampton man quite ably but it seems as though Jurgen Klopp will restore Lovren to the team for Saturday’s game.

A consistent back four is something Liverpool hasn’t been able to feature for several years with plenty of interruptions and poor defending meaning that rotation at the back has become the norm.

Klopp, however, has tried to change this but things like suspension, injury and viral infections have ruined his attempts to do so.

Lovren has returned to training and the Echo reports that Klopp will be weighing up his options as to who will partner Joel Matip in defence.

Matip has definitely become Liverpool’s go-to man in defence as his aerial ability and composure on the ball instil confidence in his teammates. Klopp will be looking to get a regular centre-back partnership going and Lovren is certainly the man to line up beside Matip.

Liverpool has conceded three goals in their last three games and is a vast improvement on the six goals in three games that were given away in the first few games of the Premier League season. More of this sort of improvement could see Liverpool finally finish a season with a respectable goal difference.
