Dejan Lovren believes Liverpool have a lot of areas in which to improve but is confident last season’s Premier League runners-up will get it right, ESPN
The Reds beat Queens Park Rangers 3-2 at Loftus Road on Sunday but the defensive performance of Brendan Rodgers’ side was heavily criticised, with Lovren accepting the team has been sub-par, both in that game and throughout the season.
“A lot of things are not right at the moment but it will come,” he said. “We need to be more compact, to run more, we need to be like one player on the pitch, all together, to breathe the same. We need to improve and play more like a team.
“We have amazing individual players, but we need to show it as a team,” Lovren continued. “QPR was the first time in my career I was unhappy after the game, even though we won, because we didn’t play good. I was glad it was over because one more minute and it would have been 3-3.”
Lovren moved to Anfield from Southampton over the summer, joining Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert in swapping the south coast for Merseyside. Liverpool are currently three points and two places behind the Saints, who are third.
