The Reds slumped to a disappointing 2-1 loss to the Citizens at The Etihad on Thursday night as they suffered their first Premier League defeat of the season at the hands of last term’s champions.
Still, Liverpool FC remain at the top of the Premier League table and four point ahead of Manchester City as the top flight title race hots up.
And Lovren believes that Jurgen Klopp’s side have plenty of reasons to be positive despite admitting the disappointment of losing for the first time in the Premier League this term.
Speaking in an interview with Liverpool FC’s website, Lovren said: “The message [in the dressing room afterwards] was to stay calm.
“There are many games in front of us, and we knew it was a big season and we are still first. Nothing changed.
“We need to stay calm, keep our focus game by game and do not look back. When we win or we lose, we will not look back.
“People already questioned us even before the season, even now they said this game was already the title. It doesn’t work in football like that. It is game by game, let us see at the end of the season where we will finish.
“But I don’t think this will change anything. No, we are quite strong, strong in the mentality.
“This is Liverpool, we will always come back when it’s tough. And you know it is tough after the final whistle, but it is over, finished, we can’t change it.
“We will accept that and congratulate Manchester City – but the season is quite long and I believe in this team.”
Liverpool FC will look to bounce back to winning ways in the top flight when they travel to Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
Before that, they will take on Wolves in the third round of the FA Cup on Monday night.
Liverpool FC are still looking to take home their first major trophy under Klopp since his appointment back in October 2015.
