Liverpool centre-back Dejan Lovren has returned to training having not played for the Reds for over a month.

Lovren suffered a muscle injury against Salzburg in the Champions League on December 10 2019, and he has not been fit enough to play football since.

The injury did come at a horrific time for Jurgen Klopp, as Liverpool were entering a very busy December period.

The Reds were already without Joel Matip and Fabinho heading into December, who both have been pivotal in regards to Liverpool’s defensive game this season.

Klopp’s side got through a very tricky period of their season, and the news is only getting better, as Lovren returned to training yesterday.

“Happy to be back,” Lovren said, as quoted by Goal.

This is great news for Liverpool. The club currently possess a 13-point lead at the top of the table with two games in hand.

Liverpool have a serious chance to increase their lead over the next month or so. Getting key players back such as Lovren only increases Liverpool’s chances of doing so.

The Reds also still have the Champions League to contend for. Klopp will need his squad available and ready to go.
