Without Injuries Liverpool Would Be Challenging Chelsea Feels Dejan Lovren

There were plenty of tough, physical challenges, including one by Everton's Ross Barkley on Liverpool's Dejan Lovren, which earned him a yellow card.

As reported by FourFourTwo, Lovren told reporters "Progress on the contract is going on and I would say that hopefully everything will be clear in the next month".

"I don't like coaches from the bench the whole time shouting to referees, to [the] linesmen making a big show about tackles".

The duo have been castigated for their anonymous showings against Liverpool as the Reds ran out 3-1 winners to boost their hopes of sealing a place in next season's Champions League. Chelsea have not had one injury I do not think. "That's football. If you don't play football, maybe you don't understand".

"That's the future of the club and of course we like to sign and make the team stronger but everyone is always talking about the academy of Everton".

Lovren has since developed into a key member of Jurgen Klopp's side, having made 24 appearances this term. "Now we need to show our qualities in our mind and repeat it against Bournemouth".

Speaking with the Sky Sports podcast, he said: "Because I've worked with him for four years with England, I desperately want him to succeed and fulfill his talent and potential". Look at Mané and Roberto had a brilliant game and Divock comes on for two minutes and scored. "If you want to play in the Champions League then you need to play like a Champions League team".

The midfielder endured another disappointing performance against the Reds and was fortunate not to see red for a poorly timed challenge on Dejan Lovren.

"We are different, we are more into the game and not about what happened with the referee and linesman and tackles".
