Saints defender Dejan Lovren was forced off in the dying stages of today's 4-2 win over Norwich after suffering what was described as a "swollen testicle".

Lovren left the field during injury-time, and was understandably moving rather gingerly as he departed towards the tunnel.

Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino explained that the centre-back had suffered a rather painful injury when someone had stood on him in the most unfortunate of areas.

“Basically, one of his testicles was stepped on by another player and I’m pretty sure that one testicle is quite inflamed, quite swollen,” he said.
