Lovren admits 'I was shouting' at halftime of Liverpool victory: Wake up!

Lovren admits 'I was shouting' at halftime of Liverpool victory: Wake up!”

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has hit back at Dejan Lovren for claiming he gave a passionate half-time team talk in Liverpool's Champions League win over Manchester City on Tuesday.

But Lovren issued a stern warning to his team-mates at the interval, telling them to be more aggressive, and the Croatian's blast settled Liverpool's nerves.

Despite their convincing 5-1 aggregate Champions League victory over Manchester City, former England global Chris Waddle reckons Liverpool are still short of being able to challenge for the Premier League title. The first 10-15 minutes (of the first half) wasn't good enough.

"Of course Klopp said 'yes, you are sitting too deep because you are not pushing up'".

"He wanted me and Virgil to be more compact and push the team up but it was quite hard when City had the ball". When you see the second half, again they had a couple of chances but nothing too serious.

But Lovren, who hopes to avoid Real Madrid in the last four, says it fell to him to remind the Reds at half-time there was a semi-final place at stake.

Liverpool will now turn their attention to their domestic league form, as they host Bournemouth in the Premier League this weekend, before travelling to strugglers West Bromwich Albion the following week.

Real Madrid and Bayern Munich lead their respective quarter-final ties against Juventus and Sevilla after the first legs, and are expected to join Liverpool and Roma in the semi-finals.

"I hope we will face Roma or Bayern [Munich in the semi-finals] because Real has won the last two cups and it is very hard to beat them".

"Liverpool have shown how good they are by beating City three times this season", Waddle said to the BBC. When you go and score two goals it is enough.
