Shuddered by the brilliance of Lionel Messi and defeat in Barcelona at Champions League, Liverpool is aware of the fact that anything but a win in the Premier League at Newcastle United is going to leave their dreams in tatters.
The semi-final’s second league with Barcelona is awaiting at Anfield on Tuesday with the side of Jurgen Klopp requiring a comeback of Istanbul proportions if they would like to make it to the semi-finals. In case the scoreline in Spain appeared like a harsh reflection of the effort of Liverpool at night, there is a similar feeling about the campaign of Premier League.
Jurgen Klopp’s team has lost only one in the season but until the Manchester City, the leaders are defeated in their first 2 games, to Leicester City and then at Hove Albion and Brighton, they will have to settle for the second place.
James Milner, the Liverpool midfielder said that they obviously have to bounce back first during the weekend to pick themselves up after a disappointing performance.
He added the fact that they have all seen the heart in their dressing room previously. They have also seen the team spirit and drive. According to him, he is ready to go to the weekend. They are hoping to get the result and get some positive feeling for the second leg.
Liverpool supporters might draw on the memory of their comeback game from 3 goals down to win against AC Milan in the Champions League of 2005.
