Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react after it was revealed that Dejan Lovren looks likely to miss the first leg of the Champions League last 16 tie against Bayern Munich, as reported by the Liverpool Echo.

The Croatian international hasn’t played for the Reds since suffering a hamstring injury against Wolves in the FA Cup at the start of January, and has not taken part in the team’s warm weather training camp in Marbella.

Whilst his absence would be bad news on its own, Lovren’s failure to recover from this issue means that Jurgen Klopp has just one fit centre-back to choose from for the game against the Bavarians – Joel Matip.

Joe Gomez is also out injured, whilst Virgil van Dijk will miss the game through suspension.

It is looking likely that Fabinho and Matip will play in defence together for the huge game, which has got the Liverpool fans talking on Twitter…
