Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side are next in action when they face Norwich City at the weekend.
Liverpool fans have spotted a worrying trend when Lovren does big interviews with the national press.
He spoke out before Liverpool’s game against Manchester City last season, which they lost, and also was in the press before Croatia were beaten in World Cup Final by France.
With Liverpool unbeaten in the Premier League this term, there is now a fear that Lovren’s words could come back to haunt them again.
"I want us to be remembered like the Barcelona team who won in four years, like the 20 trophies. Why can we not do that,” Lovren questioned.
The statement is an ambitious one, but Liverpool fans have questioned why Lovren has come out and said it before they have mathematically secured the Premier League title.

Always get nervous after Lovren pipes up........— Mark G (@markshark1122) February 12, 2020
It is notable that Lovren’s comments are different to many of his Liverpool teammates.
The Reds players have been keen to play down expectations, but Lovren has made no secret of his ambition.
Liverpool are next in action against Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday.
