Lovren left Saturday's match against Sunderland in the first half with a possible recurrence of his hamstring injury, according to Andy Kelly of the Liverpool Echo.

Kolo Toure replaced Lovren on Saturday, and he could move into the starting lineup if the latter has to miss any time, as Martin Skrtel is still a few weeks away from returning from his own injury.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lovren returned from his hamstring injury Tuesday against Stoke City in the league cup, though he was an unused substitute.

Liverpool have been using Kolo Toure alongside Mamadou Sakho of late, but Lovren's return to fitness is likely to allow him to start next Tuesday against Leicester.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lovren (hamstring) is not in the 18-man squad to face Norwich on Saturday.

There was a possibility Lovren could have returned for Liverpool's FA Cup match against Exeter earlier this week, but he's still not fit enough to even make the bench, leaving Mamadou Sakho to partner with Kolo Toure on Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lovren could return from his hamstring injury as soon as Wednesday's FA Cup match versus Exeter, the Metro reports.

The defender has been out for two weeks since suffering the injury, but he confirmed that he could have played in Sunday's match versus Manchester United. The recent acquisition of Steven Caulker allowed the club to exercise caution with Lovren, and he could very well return Tuesday if his inclusion is deemed necessary. If not, he seemingly has a good shot to feature in this weekend's match versus Norwich.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lovren is nearing a return from a hamstring injury suffered last week, but he will not play versus Arsenal on Wednesday.

The Croatian had already been ruled out for Wednesday's match upon initially suffering the injury, but he could return for Sunday's match versus Manchester United. Lovren is joined on the sidelines by fellow first-choice center back Martin Skrtel, leaving the recently-recovered duo of Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sakho to hold down the position versus the first-place Gunners.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lovren has been ruled out for Friday's FA Cup against Exeter and Wednesday's Premier League match against Arsenal, but he could return Jan. 17 against Manchester United, manager Jurgen Klopp said Thursday.

Lovren has been a consistent starter in central defense in place of the injured Martin Skrtel, and it's now unclear who will start alongside Mamadou Sakho, as Kolo Toure is dealing with cramping.

January 5, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lovren exited Tuesday's Capital One Cup match versus Stoke City in the 33rd minute after suffering a hamstring injury, ESPN FC reports.

The Croatian exited just 15 minutes after Philippe Coutinho sustained a hamstring injury of his own, further adding to an already lengthy Liverpool injury list. It is unclear whether Lovren will be able to participate in the FA Cup match versus Exeter in three days, but the club could elect to hold him out, as the following fixture on the schedule is a Premier League date with Arsenal on Jan. 13.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lovren (knee) is starting Saturday against Leicester City.

Lovren will slot into the starting lineup in his return alongside Mamadou Sakho, with Kolo Toure still on the bench. While it's a positive that Lovren is back from the injury, it's a very difficult matchup from a fantasy perspective.
