Frank Lampard's penalty helped Chelsea to see off Benfica at Stamford Bridge

Frank Lampard's penalty helped Chelsea to see off Benfica at Stamford Bridge

With much speculation about how United manager Jose Mourinho will set his team up against their free-scoring rivals at Old Trafford on Saturday, Lovren seized the opportunity to reference Mourinho's reputation for parking the bus.

The game, which is being broadcast on Sky Sports, will have a huge influence on who finishes second in the Premier League. But we knew Lukaku can win headers and when he did, we were not there for a second ball.

"When you are younger than I am, and you are learning the game, I think you do need it". You can say we deserved it because we were good enough around situations, but we caused United a lot of problems.

Former Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier once famously declared the only way his captain should leave the pitch before the final whistle away at Manchester United is "on a stretcher".

"

"We never play for a point."

". "It is our job to focus on ourselves and play how we hope to beat them".

"We want the supporters behind us, since I've been here they've been really good".

"They (United) had a very good result without a good game vs Crystal Palace".

"Maybe they are not in the best shape, but still they win ugly", Lovren told reporters.

"I have to be honest and give the credit to the people of the academy that was responsible for his formation, to Louis van Gaal [Mourinho's predecessor] who was responsible for his first season". Big rivalry for ages but in the last few years Man United were more successful than us, we respect that.

"We saw Tottenham players getting penalties at Anfield a few weeks back after falling over in the box, but Salah chose to stay on his feet and the referee then made a decision to give nothing". I think I responded quite well even with some different things around my life - burglars and things like that - so it wasn't easy for me, especially in October.
