Dejan Lovren's fitness will be assessed ahead of Liverpool's meeting with Arsenal on Sunday after he suffered a groin injury during the Reds' midweek Capital One Cup victory.

The centre-back was substituted at half-time in the quarter-final tie against Bournemouth on Wednesday evening, which Brendan Rodgers' side won 3-1 at the Goldsands Stadium.

With the Gunners next up in the Barclays Premier League in two days' time, the manager provided the latest on the Croatian's condition at his pre-match press conference.

"We're just waiting to hear on that - hopefully he'll be fine," Rodgers responded when asked by reporters gathered at Melwood. "We'll assess that before the weekend."
