Welcome to our weekly round-up, a diary of news and events on the site, matters relating to LFC and the world of football generally.
The Week in Football – Liverpool FC:
Dejan Lovren insisted he was more disappointed than anyone with his individual error in Liverpool’s defeat by West Ham United – but vowed that he and his teammates will respond. (LiverpoolFC.com)
“I’m the first one who is disappointed with myself. Of course for the first minute after the second goal I wanted to go under the table. What can I do?
“In these moments you have to keep your head up and to play the rest of the game. I tried everything but what can I say? It was a bad decision by me and mistakes happen.
“But it is finished. The game is finished. I’ve forgotten it already. Now it is the national team and in two weeks we have Manchester United.”
“This is a big year for me,” admitted the No.6. “I said I needed time to have a full pre-season with my team and this is an important thing for me.
“It’s not just about me and Martin. It is all the team when we defend well, it is all the team when we attack well. It is not just the two central defenders or goalkeeper.
“A game like this, it happens. Mistakes happen and they were cheap goals. But I don’t think it will shake myself and the team so we will go again straight away to find our form and win at Manchester United.
“We need to keep our heads up in a tough moment. We need to work hard and forget this as soon as possible. I know that we will do better, definitely better. We have to do it for us and the fans.”
