Does it help to play Liverpool without fans?
I think obviously the crowd makes them stronger because it is a unique atmosphere they are able to create at Anfield. As well you are able to see how well they are playing without any crowds as well, so we know the challenge ahead of us, so let’s embrace it, let’s go for it, prepare well and try to go there and win.
How much confidence will you take from the last two performances?
They are all very different games. The one we played at the Emirates and the final were very different. It will be different again. We know the standards they have set in this league, how consistent they have been. That’s because they dominate almost every aspect of the game.
We need to be at our best, we need to compete very well against this team. Hopefully the boys are ready to do that on Monday.

What do you mean different?
They were really different. They have some variability depending on what they do, how we have to control those aspects, as well the way we can attack in different ways as well.
We work all the time with them without much time to breathe, it’s a really quick game. Long sequences of passes don’t really exist against them. We have to be at our best that’s for sure.
What have you been working on to address the issues you saw after the West Ham win?
Obviously I’m not going to discuss that but we had some time to work and try to prepare better. Every game brings you different challenges and in this league every opponent is causing you issues that you have to resolve.
We are evolving, we are getting much better. On Tuesday already we did a lot of things much better in the same aspect. We need to keep improving.
Is there any update on Lucas Torreira’s future?
We don’t have any update on Lucas or any other player at the moment.
