Dejan Lovren: 'Liverpool deserved victory over Swansea City'

Dejan Lovren believes that Liverpool deserved Tuesday's late victory over Swansea City in the fourth round of the League Cup.

Dejan Lovren has insisted that Liverpool deserved their dramatic win over Swansea City in the League Cup on Tuesday night.

The Reds found themselves 0-1 down with 10 minutes left to play at Anfield, but late goals from Mario Balotelli and Lovren earned them a place in the quarter-finals.

While Swansea were close to claiming the victory on Merseyside, Lovren believes that the hosts were worthy winners in the end thanks to their dominant display.

"It was a great feeling to score at the end," he told the club's official website. "It was a relief because we deserved a win. When I saw the statistics, they had five shots on goal and we had 20, so we completely deserved the win."

Liverpool are next in action on Saturday when they make the trip to Newcastle United in the Premier League.
