Lovren makes bold Liverpool claim ahead of West Brom clash
By Emma Sanders
Dejan Lovren has claimed Liverpool can beat any team in the Premier League ahead of their clash against West Brom this Saturday.
The Liverpool defender is in high spirits as Liverpool extended their unbeaten run in the league to six games after their goalless draw against Manchester United.
Lovren believes his side has improved so much under Klopp that they’re now in the race for a top four finish at the end of the season after early results have put them in a commanding position.
“It’s good when you are in the race,” Lovren told Liverpool’s official club website.
“You have a better chance to finish well than if you are sixth or seventh. You know everything is possible. Every game is a ‘win’ game for us now.

“We have the quality to beat everyone, when you look at the teams we have played already. It’s just about a winning mentality. If we can keep that, at the end of the season we can be proud.
“We improved a lot with Jürgen [Klopp]. We were really good last season when he came, but now we are flying. We just need to keep that winning spirit.”
Since Klopp arrived in October 2015, Liverpool have won 32 out of 62 games, drawn 18 and lost just 14, including the Europa League and Capital One Cup finals.
The Reds currently sit in fourth position, two points off the top, after scoring 18 goals and beating rivals, Arsenal, Chelsea and Leicester City.
They have also recorded important draws against Manchester United and Tottenham in their opening eight fixtures and are among the favourites to lift the Premier League title at the end of the season.
