Dejan Lovren played for 75 minutes as Liverpool U23s claimed an impressive 2-0 victory over Chelsea at Prenton Park on Monday night.
Centre-back Lovren has missed the Reds’ first team’s last five games due to a knee injury and a sore back, but appeared to come through the Premier League 2 contest unscathed in front of Jürgen Klopp, who was watching on from the stands.
Goals in either half from Harry Wilson and Trent Alexander-Arnold earned a fully-deserved three points for Mike Garrity’s side, who controlled the match from start to finish.
Captain Wilson broke the deadlock from the penalty spot in the 21st minute after Alexander-Arnold had been felled in the area, before the full-back – a constant threat down Liverpool’s right – sealed the win with a dipping free-kick 20 minutes from time.
