Portugal forward labeled the game special after he helped the Reds to take down his former club



"We are in poor form so we need to change that. Today was a good game and we did our job,"

he told

BBC Sport


"It's a special game. I worked here for over three years. I know almost everyone in that dressing room. I just wish the fans could be here to make it even more special.

"The goal meant a lot and it helped the team I represent now. It was really, really important today. The break comes not in a good moment. We had two wins, two clean sheets so we could have built some momentum.

"It was really, really important [to score]. As a striker, I always want to be involved in goals. I had opportunities I didn't take in the Champions League. It's a good feeling to be back on scoresheet.

"If we play the way we have here I think we have a chance [of the top four]."
