Adrián: the Winning Mentality Is Back

Whatever went wrong is apparently history.

Liverpool were not winning football matches recently. It still feels weird to type that.

Adrián was probably at fault as much as anyone, making a big error against Chelsea. But he believes it’s no longer an issue.

“The confidence of everyone was a bit down but I think today we showed the winning mentality is back, the team came back after the early goal from Bournemouth”, the goalkeeper told the official Liverpool site.

“We showed again that we are here to face the end of the season and face the big challenges that are coming and the three points was the most important thing today, and we got them.

“Today it was really important to get the three points to get that confidence back again, 100 per cent. On Wednesday we face a big challenge against Atletico Madrid here at Anfield. We need to come back against the result in Madrid but Anfield will be on fire for sure, the fans will be supporting us from the first second.

“We will go for the game from the first second and from tonight we will be thinking about that game because it is the most important game of the season right now.

“I think we know the style of play of Atletico. We have to prepare in the next few days as well as possible to try to keep the ball, be patient, to move the ball quick because for sure they are going to defend the result here.

“But it’s going to be very difficult for them to defend again for 95 minutes, here at Anfield it’s a different history. Madrid was Madrid but now we have the second leg here so we hope and we are thinking to try to come back in that game and win the game for sure.

Liverpool have a huge game on Wednesday. It’s not make or break, because this season is already a big success, but god it would be nice to keep things going.
