(Sunday) is a test of character. We can take our anger out against Liverpool.

It’s a massive game and both teams will be going to win. We’ll look forward to putting (tonight’s defeat) right.

It’s still early doors (in the Champions League). We’re fuming we lost today. But there’s still five games to go – we just have to win our next five.
