No holding back for Hiddink

14 Apr 2009 - 08:39:03

Guus Hiddink has promised that his Chelsea side will not adopt a defensive approach to their Champions League quarter-final second leg encounter with Liverpool.

The Blues are in control of the tie after winning last week's first leg at Anfield 3-1 but the Dutchman is keen to go for more goals in the capital.

Liverpool need to score three times at Stamford Bridge to stand any chance of progressing to the semi-finals, but Hiddink said: "Before the first game there was talk that for a European game the approach would be different for both teams.

"But I can't imagine two English teams with this attitude in their team will not play an attacking way of football. I didn't believe both will play a cautious game before and it will be the same on Tuesday.

"It cannot be a cautious game, a game where you expect nothing to happen in the first hour and then at the end we take a risk, that is not in both teams' souls.

"When you play in April and May in the Champions League then all the matches are like the Final, it all goes on those little details and a bit of luck.

"That is the same with Liverpool, it is a kind of Final and there is no game between the managers, it is just going on what you planned and sometimes you come away with a victory. We have to go for the win."
