Dejan Lovren does not believe Liverpool should be worried, despite failing to seal Champions League qualification at Chelsea on Sunday.

The Reds have reached the final of Europe's premier club competition, yet their participation in next season's tournament remains in doubt, as a defeat at Stamford Bridge allowed Chelsea to close to within three points of Jurgen Klopp's men.

Although Chelsea have a game in hand, Liverpool's superior goal difference almost certainly means victory against Brighton will secure a top-four finish.

And Lovren is confident that third-placed Liverpool, who defeated Middlesbrough on the final day of last season to book a return to the Champions League, will deliver again, telling the club's website: "It's similar [to 2016-17]. We know what we can expect.

"It will definitely be tough. Brighton showed in their previous game against Manchester United that they can win against big teams, but I'm confident we can do it."

Lovren also believes Liverpool deserved a draw at Chelsea, where Olivier Giroud's header settled the game in the home side's favour.

"To be honest, we had a quite good game," he said. "We played our football how we wanted and how we expected.

"With [Chelsea's] deep defending, it was quite difficult. We had a couple of chances and didn't score; they had this one header and that's it, one goal. It should usually be at least a point but, unfortunately, we didn't take our chances like we usually do.

"But it's still in our hands. The next game will definitely be a tough game but I'm confident we can manage to win it."

Dejan Lovren named in Croatia Preliminary WC squad .
Dejan Lovren has been named in Croatia’s Preliminary World Cup squad ahead of the tournament with begins in July. He is the only player named in the squad to play in the Premier League. Lovren also scored his first Anfield goal in the Premier League, in their 4-0 win over Brighton. The win also confirmed they place in next season’s Champions League, for the second successive time under Klopp. His inclusion in the World Cup Squad also suggests that he is now on good terms with coach Ante Cacic.. Lovren had endured a rocky relationship with Cacic, having been left out of the Euro 2016 squad and his exclusion saw both sides exchanging words in the public eye. His season at Liverpool has been revived with introduction of Virgil van Dijk as they have established themselves as strong and resilient centre back pairing. Earlier in the season, Lovren was paired up with Joel Matip and this proved to be a good partnership at the start. However, Matip picked up injuries along the way resulting in the back four being reshuffled and it also showed signs of lacking consistency. Lovren himself made a few errors during the course of the season but he also been remarkable in adapting to new partnerships. The arrival of Van Dijk stabilised the central defence position. Lovren is a natural right sided player whilst Van Dijk prefers the left side. With Lovren playing in his favoured side, he excelled and showed fans how good he can be.
