Zenit defender Dejan Lovren: Facing Chelsea important for us

Zenit St Petersburg defender Dejan Lovren insists they're taking seriously their Champions League clash with Chelsea.

No matter the result, Zenit will finish third in their group.

But Lovren says: "This match is important for us. We must show what we are capable of. I would like to be on a good wave for Sunday's match against Dynamo.

"We are focused, we need to fight for the coat of arms on the chest. At home we want to play well in front of our fans, we have nothing to lose."

On his record against Chelsea, the former Liverpool defender also said: "I played a lot against them, yes, but I remember one match at Stamford Bridge in which Liverpool won 3-1 or 2-1. I scored then - that's why I remember."
