Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren says the Reds must continue the early season form that they have shown under Brendan Rodgers.

After securing narrow wins over Stoke City and Bournemouth, Liverpool managed to earn a point in an enthralling goalless draw against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Lovren, speaking to the official club website, said that the Reds were left somewhat disappointed not to have taken all three points back to the Merseyside.

“We knew it was going to be a tough game – and we lost here last season – but after the first two games of the season, we had a lot of confidence, so we came here looking for three points,” said the 26-year-old.

“I’d say we’re disappointed [not to have won]. Especially in the first half, we had so many chances. They also had some good chances.

But I think we were defensively perfect and everyone did a great job. We need to continue like this and the goals will come.

Philippe Coutinho hit the woodwork twice in the first half while Gunners ‘keeper Petr Cech was in inspired form to thwart Christian Benteke and James Milner.

Arsenal rallied in the second half and applied pressure on the Liverpool back-line but Lovren et al held firm.

“The first thing for us was not to concede and then after that, to finish [chances],” added the Croatian.

“Cech was amazing and made a brilliant save from Benteke on the line.

“But in the end, it’s a good point because we know it’s tough here every time.”

The former Southampton player has been part of a defensive back four that has kept three clean sheets in a row and they will be looking to repeat those heroics in their next game against West Ham United on Saturday.
