Lovren knows what to expect from United side that “wins ugly”

Liverpool’s Dejan Lovren expects Manchester United to sit back and defend deep again in Saturday’s huge Premier League clash at Old Trafford. United stifled Liverpool at Anfield in October and emerged with a goalless draw. Now Lovren expects more of the same. “Maybe they are not in the best shape but still they win ugly,” he said. “What matters is the points. It will be a tough challenge definitely. “Last time, when they came here, they defended really deep so let’s see what happens now. I think they will do that again. They need the points. For them maybe a point is good but we never play for a point. We will play like we play every day, attacking football. Let’s enjoy.” Lovren believes he has overcome troubles both on and off the pitch this season to stake a claim to be Virgil van Dijk’s long-term partner. The Croatia international endured a torrid first half of the season with his lowest on-field moment coming when he was hauled off after just 31 minutes in October’s 4-1 defeat to Tottenham. Lovren received death threats to his family on social media and things worsened when burglars targeted his home, with his wife and two children inside, while he was at Liverpool’s Champions League match against Maribor. It represented a real low point for Lovren, who admits those few weeks did affect him. “It was horrific,” he said of the attempted burglary. “People look at football and they don’t look what is going on around the life. “Some people can understand that, some people not, but in these difficult situations I saw the support from some really good people like the manager, the club, my team-mates and of course the supporters who are ready always to support you. “It is not easy because we are also humans and everyone has problems. “I am giving my best to have a quiet life around myself but sometimes it doesn’t depend on myself because people just want to come into my home and steal things. “I think I responded quite well even with some different things around my life: burglars and things like that, so it wasn’t quite easy for me especially in October.”
