Goal "80% mine", jokes Lovren

By SFC Media time Sat 19 Oct Men's First team

Dejan Lovren was left in high spirits after helping Saints take only their second-ever Premier League point at Old Trafford.

With it looking like his side were heading for their second loss of the season, Lovren's 89th-minute header span off Adam Lallana's leg and beyond Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea to level matters.

There was some debate over to whom the equaliser should be credited – with Lovren coming out fighting when he spoke to Saints Player after the match.

"I told Adam in the changing room that I didn't care because the most important thing was taking the point, but I also told him that it was 80% my goal and 20% his!" he laughed. 

"It would give me pleasure to have scored here. I think we did a great job.

"It was a hard game," he continued. "In the beginning it was really tough and, in the end, I think a point was a good point for us.

"Our attitude is to play the same kind of football everywhere. We always try to play our game. They had a lot of chances today, so we can be happy with a point."
