Lyon v Liverpool: Dirk Kuyt fired up for revenge mission

04 November 2009 10:24
Liverpool face the group E leaders knowing that only a victory will keep alive any realistic hopes of staying in the Champions League this season.

Liverpool are without Steven Gerrard, Martin Skrtel, Fabio Aurelio, Albert Riera and Glen Johnson. Torres, despite struggling with a hernia problem, will start the match and so too could Italian midfielder Alberto Aquilani.

'Now we have to make sure we win over there. You always want to win games. The only difference is the pressure is much higher in the Champions League.

'But we've done it before. We've come back from a bad position and we always feel we have a chance.

'Do we want revenge? Of course we want revenge. Our next game is there and we definitely have to win.

'They are a good team with some quality players but we have beaten good teams away from home before.

'We've beaten Marseille, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Inter Milan away in the last few years. We have nothing to fear. People may have written us off but it doesn't matter what people are saying. We need to win our last three games. We will try to win every one. We'll never give up.'
