The Croatia centre-back switched from Southampton for £20million on a long-term deal, one of three players to trade St Mary's for Liverpool this summer, following England duo Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana in making the switch to Merseyside.

Liverpool have also signed Germany Under-21 midfielder Emre Can from Bayer Leverkusen, Serbia winger Lazar Markovic from Benfica and Lille's Belgium striker Divock Origi, but star striker Luis Suarez has departed for Barcelona.

Despite the loss of Suarez, Lovren believes the Reds can challenge both domestically and in the UEFA Champions League this campaign.

He told Sportske Novosti: "Luis Suarez is gone, that is true. He is great striker and it would have been great if he had stayed.

"But his departure will not mean anything for Liverpool. Each player can be replaced. Liverpool bought five quality players and I think many more will come.

"I'm 100 per cent sure that we will fight for Premier League title. But not only that. We can win in Europe too."

W

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
