The Reds have not lost to Manchester United in their last five meetings in all competitions.
Lingard meanwhile has enjoyed his most prolific season to date with the Old Trafford club, scoring a career high eight league goals, as well as providing four assists in the Premier League to strengthen his claim for a place in England's World Cup squad for the tournament in Russian Federation this summer.
The two teams drew 0-0 earlier this season with Romelu Lukaku missing a clear cut opportunity at Anfield.
Lovren said: "Maybe they are not in the best shape but still they win ugly".
Matters on the pitch added to the vitriolic mood, with Ashley Barnes and a Chris Wood double steering Burnley to a second win in a week, closing the gap on sixth-placed Arsenal, who host Watford on Sunday, to two points.
"Last time, when they came here, they defended really deep so let's see what happens now".
The former Ajax star said: 'It's a pity that the manager is Mourinho because normally he's an English player you want to give him time and he can then make mistakes. They need the points, definitely. "If we had won the two finals we played in my first season here everything would have settled on another level". Everyone turns up every day for training, we all work hard, we all do the necessary things.
"Still, you know Mourinho has his own plans". And if we have to defend there we have to defend there with all we have, not gambling and thinking "we're flying" and play this and that.
One would hope that Liverpool getting something from the match with Manchester United wouldn't hinge on the team being awarding a penalty but sometimes that's the way these things go. Fascinating interviews with Gary Lineker, Russell Brand, Lily Allen, Eric Cantona, Alastair Campbell, Jon Ronson, Nick Clegg and more.
