Date published: Wednesday 7th March 2018 10:33

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren believes the club have every chance of adding to their five European Cups this season.

The Reds managed a goalless draw at home to Porto last night which secured their progress to the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in nine years thanks to their 5-0 win in Portugal.

“We are ready for everything; whoever comes, we are ready to fight,” said Lovren, who partnered Joel Matip at centre-back last night at Anfield.

“I think if we are ready and prepared to fight until the end, I am a big believer that we can see ourselves into the final.”

Before they get ahead of themselves, however, Liverpool head to Manchester United on Saturday in the battle to be the Premier League’s best of the rest behind runaway leaders Manchester City.

“It will be a massive game – one of the biggest games in Europe,” added the Croatia defender.

“It will be a tough game and let’s see what will happen, but we are full of confidence and it will be a big fight for second place.”
