Video: Dejan Lovren Accuses Romelu Lukaku of Deliberately Kicking Him in the Face

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has accused Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku of deliberately kicking him in the face during the two teams’ Premier League clash at the weekend.

England’s most successful clubs squared off in an eagerly anticipated match at Anfield on Saturday afternoon, but it turned out to be a bit of a damp squib – with Lukaku’s kick on Lovren one of the main talking points.

The pair collided in the first-half, with Lukaku appearing to stumble before his heel catches Lovren on the face.

The Belgian striker has been informed he won’t face any disciplinary action from the FA over the incident but the Croatian centre-back isn’t happy, and insists his opponent knew what he was doing:

What do you make of Lovren’s comments? Did Lukaku really intend to kick him in the face?

It certainly makes their return meeting later this season a lot more interesting.
