REFEREE: Nicola Rizzoli (Italian)

Philippe Coutinho: THOUGH HE BE BUT LITTLE, HE IS FIERCE.

(And he would never let his inability to speak any English get in the way of fighting an opponent.)

I’ve told everyone this is an opportunity they shouldn’t miss,” he says. “They’re used to a stadium that holds 80,000, sure, but Anfield is la bomba, unique. It’s only 45,000 and they say: ‘Well … ’ and I say: ‘Well?’ Those 45,000 make the atmosphere very, very special. I’ve told them to enjoy it. I can imagine what Anfield will be like, how they’ll sing You’ll Never Walk Alone and cheer every corner or throw-in close to our area as if it’ll end in a goal – and I know it’ll feel like that to us.
—  Alvaro Arbeloa in The Guardian
