Yossi: Reds can manage twin assault

Liverpool playmaker Yossi Benayoun believes the Reds can juggle the demands of chasing Premier League and Champions League glory. The Reds face Chelsea in the Champions League quarter-finals this week aiming to maintain their fine run of form as they challenge for honours at home and abroad. Benayoun, who scored the dramatic winner in the last-gasp victory over Fulham on Saturday, feels Liverpool have proved they can fight for both competitions. "It's a huge week. We have a massive game against Chelsea and hopefully we will be able to show all the good feelings of the strength and hard work to beat them," said Benayoun. "We're very confident but we have to think now only about the next game. The main thing is to concentrate on Chelsea, after that Blackburn and then game by game to the end of the season. "Every season is a test for Liverpool. You need to try to do your best in the league and the Champions League. "It's true that in the past few seasons we weren't in the race for the title but we've shown a lot of character in the last few games in the Champions League. "We beat Real Madrid and United in the league. We've proved we can manage with both of them."
