Away form pleases Lovren

Away form pleases Lovren

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren welcomed the win at Chelsea on Friday and was delighted to find the back of the net.

Lovren grabbed the Reds' opener and Jordan Henderson made it 2-0 before the break.

Diego Costa pulled a goal back for the hosts but Liverpool held on to record a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge.

Lovren was happy to score but says the result is all that counts, and he feels Liverpool are a tough proposition on the road - especially against the bigger sides.

"We know what we need to do when we come to away games, especially against big teams like Chelsea," he told the club's official website.

"We are a team who wants to play, who wants to win - we are not a team who will defend deep and await our chances.

"It's always the same speech [from manager Jurgen Klopp], always positive! We need to keep working hard. We've had a great week in training so everyone was positive.

"Of course I'm always happy to score but I’m more happy with the performance of the team, I think we played brilliantly, especially in the first half. We controlled our football. [It’s an] Amazing win."
