‘We know how good Liverpool are on the counterattack when they get the ball up to their pacy attackers.
‘We know they have some weaknesses we could exploit in our favour and we should exploit them again in the next game. We have to pay attention because, besides using those strengths, they have an extra player, which is the Anfield crowd, and that makes things harder for us.
The Uruguayan also spoke about Liverpool’s famous ‘You’ll never walk alone’ song.

‘The lyrics say it all. You can have a bad game, and another bad game after that, but they will never stop believing in you.
‘They won’t let you walk alone, as they say. People won’t boo you if you lose a ball. They will keep believing in you because you are playing for Liverpool. And that confidence which people give you was huge.
‘There have been players who have cost a lot. They haven’t had a lot of success, but when they went out on the pitch they felt that love from the people. It’s amazing, and it gives you confidence.
