Lovren: Liverpool don’t feel any pressure
Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren said that his team wasn’t under pressure due to gaining the status of the Premier League championship race favorite.
Lovren himself laid the foundation for Newcastle’s defeat last Wednesday, and thanks to the 4:0 victory, the Reds increased their lead at the head of the Premier League to six points.
Manchester City’s Josep Guardiola, whose team was thrown back to third place after two defeats in a row, already warned Liverpool about how heavy the burden of leadership was. However, the Reds themselves know it well, having celebrated Christmas at first place twice in 10 previous seasons, but every time losing the title.
However, Lovren doesn’t feel it at all and believes that the experience of previous seasons will allow the Reds to stay on top.
The defender said that no one talked about the championship at Liverpool. The whole team is focused only on the next match. It is foolish to think about what will happen in 5 months in January. The whole second half of the season is ahead, which means another 1 game with each of the rivals from the first half. Everything can happen.
