It’s now a little bit more ­interesting.“It was one of the ­biggest ­performances since I came here. Liverpool are, at the moment, maybe the best team in Europe or the world, so we’re happy we beat them. The players all felt how ­intense it was, especially given how important the game was. It was ­really tense.“You could see in every tackle, in every pass, everyone was really focused on the game and not to make mistakes. One wrong pass, one mistake, and you could get ­punished.“So it was really important to win against Liverpool. It gives you more confidence to know we are closer and it’s not over.
