Following Liverpool’s dismal performance against Real Madrid in the Champions League this past week, young center-back Ozan Kabak is determined to put the loss behind him.

“In the Premier League, at this stage we need to win every game. Obviously the Madrid game is huge for us in the Champions League, but we will concentrate on the Aston Villa game and we will be there for the win”, he said in an interview with

“We have eight games remaining in the Premier League and obviously in the Champions League we will decide how many games we’re going to play.

“We don’t have any points to lose and we just need to win every game. This huge club needs to be in the Champions League next year, [like] every year.

“The Real Madrid game is now in the past, we just focus on this game in the Premier League. Obviously we need to win every game and we need to go into the Champions League next year.

“We are desperate to win in the Premier League, so we are fully focused on Saturday.”

Hopes had risen when Liverpool put on a dazzling display in the Premier League against Arsenal, with a standout performance from young Portuguese forward Diogo Jota. And Kabak is eager to build on that positivity.

“We played very good against Arsenal. I think this is one of the best games of our season,” he said.

“We played really well, we scored good goals. In the midfield we were so aggressive, we put pressure on when we lost the ball. In defence, solid and also [got a] clean sheet.

“I think we need to put this performance on the pitch every week.

“I hope we will win against Aston Villa and I will get my first win at Anfield.”
