Dejan Lovren returned to Melwood on Tuesday morning to begin pre-season training ahead of 2019-20 - and he was joined by Divock Origi for the gruelling lactate test.

The duo have linked up with their teammates once again having been afforded a few additional days off due to their end-of-season involvement with their respective international sides.

Browse our gallery below of Lovren and Origi being put through their paces at the club's training complex.
