With a place in the final secured after a 2017-18 season in which Liverpool reached the Champions League final despite criticisms of their defensive weaknesses, Lovren feels a point had been proven about his quality as a player.
Speaking to beIN Sport following the game, the much maligned Liverpool defender claimed that he is one of the world's best.
Lovren joined Liverpool from Southampton in 2014 and played 43 games in all competitions last season.
"From my point of view, people said I had a hard season but I don't agree", said the 29-year-old.
"Since I came in, maybe Dejan made three or four mistakes, two of them in the Tottenham game, maybe one in a Champions League game a year ago. I think people should recognise that I'm one of the best defenders in the world".
"I am perfectly ready and fit, and I can say the same for my teammates".
