Brendan Rodgers takes his turn. “There’s still quite a way to go. It’s fantastic game, one we’re really looking forward to. It’s a really tough game against the champions but one in which we want to show our qualities. It’s big blow for us with James [Justin], a young player coming through from League One to play at the top end of the Premier League, he was just getting better and better all the time. He’s a tough boy mentally and hopefully he’ll be back in a few months. We can adapt and change, and the team is fresh, with a lot of players rested in the midweek.”

Of course we know today is a proper test, against Barnes, Vardy, Maddison, all these kind of things, so it will be tricky. But we think we are prepared. It’s not that there is a difference between Premier League and Bundesliga, because in the Bundesliga you play against top, top, top strikers; it’s more than you are in a new team. That makes a difference. Defending is a common thing, but you do not defend alone and you have to get used to each other.

It is a proper football game!”
