Andy Robertson

tells BT Sport:

“We had a few chances in the first half, trying to break them down, We had a bit of momentum after the first goal and the noise in here was incredible. It took us to the second one. We would have liked one more but a clean sheet and two goals, we can’t argue with that.

“It is the semi-final of the Champions League. If you can’t run around for 90 minutes in this kind of game, when will you? Our intensity has been high for the last couple of games. We have had a hectic schedule but we are enjoying it. There is still work to do but we are happy.”

Jordan Henderson

tells BT Sport::

“They are a very organized team and we knew they would make it difficult. It was just important that we kept going and believing that we would eventually break them down. We did that with two good goals.

“The first one was a bit lucky - good build up but a bit lucky, in off the defender and keeper I think. But you need a bit of luck when a team plays with a low block. We got that and it lifted the crowd. For the majority of the game, the counter-press was really good. It made it difficult for them. But the game is still alive and it will be tough in Villarreal.”
