Liverpool striker Crouch: We will go into the game to win

Crouch said: “We will go into the game to win, just like we did against Barcelona, PSV and Chelsea.

“Yes, we are cautious, that’s the way we play.

“The starting point of our success is our resilience and we are difficult to beat.

“We have a fantastic defence and all work hard for each other to keep clean sheets, and that will always be the main objective.

“But when we attack, we do attack. We scored three goals in Istanbul, and then three more to win the FA Cup last season, so we’ve proved we’ve got that in us.

“When we go forward we can score. Even this season, we got three at PSV Eindhoven and two in the Nou Camp. We’ve scored goals in this competition and we can do it when we need to.

“Maybe we don’t get as much credit as we deserve attacking-wise because our defence is so solid. Of course we try to keep a tight shape and work to keep a clean sheet, but we don’t go for 0-0.

“We try to score goals and win games and that’s been the case throughout the European campaign.”
