Dejan Lovren accuses Romelu Lukaku of deliberately stamping on his face

Dejan Lovren has accused Romelu Lukaku of deliberately stamping on his head during Liverpool's stalemate with Manchester United and claimed that the striker's lack of remorse betrayed his intent. No action was taken by referee Martin Atkinson, while it was confirmed on Monday that Lukaku will face no retrospective sanction.

The Belgium global was not punished by referee Martin Atkinson at the time and it was confirmed on Monday will face no retrospective action from the video review panel despite Lovren claiming his foot had connected with his cheekbone.

In the seconds after Lovren had tackled Lukaku, the Belgian's foot appeared to make contact with the Croatian, who responded by rolling a distance of around 40 yards in supposed agony.

Speaking at his press conference ahead of United's game against Benfica in the Champions League, Mourinho said that Lovren contradicted himself: "There is a contradiction there".

Lovren was quoted by the BBC saying: "My honest view is that he did it on objective".

DeShone Kizer again named starting quarterback for Browns
Browns coach Hue Jackson believes the rookie Kizer learned a lesson from the benching and will be better off because of it. It definitely motivated me throughout the week to make sure that I'm doing extra", Kizer said, via the Browns' site .


But I saw that he was nervous during the game, so maybe that was the reason.

"It's over and I cannot change it and nobody can change it".

Despite his comments, Lovern insists he has now moved on from the incident.

"I think he was too eager".

"It's over and I cannot change it and nobody can change it. That's football, part of the game".

Free flu shot clinic at Kimberley Centennial Hall
Each year, an average of 20,000 children nationwide under the age of five are hospitalized because of influenza complications. In real figures, out of 99,588 patients registered 65 years old and over in Buckinghamshire, 70,984 got the vaccination.


The draw meant Liverpool have only won one of their last eight games in all competitions, including the Champions League, in which they drew their opening group games against Sevilla and Spartak Moscow.

Meanwhile, Lovren says he is now fit after troubling back and groin injuries that were forcing him to take painkillers and miss training sessions.

"I skipped the first match of the internationals, so I think that helped me to put the pain a little bit down".

"I'm fit now", the central defender said.
