'Crewe Quotes'

There's been so much coverage and interviews regarding Tuesday night's match at Anfield that we may as well just stick it in the one article. After all, we're only used to a 3 minute Steve Holland interview (stuck on repeat) every Saturday.


Rafa Benitez on the game -

'We brought Torres on to try and score the third goal - every competition is important so we were trying to create more chances.

'So going forward Torres would give us more space and you could see he had two chances to score which if they would have gone in would have sealed the game.

'As always in these kinds of games, if you don't score the third goal and finish the game, then things can get a bit nervous.

'We were a little bit nervous today and we certainly had enough chances to score a third goal. It was good for some of our younger players to play against players like Crewe, who are coming to come here and be competitive and play football.'

Sami Hyppia on 'difficult' Crewe -

'Crewe made it difficult but that's what you are always going to get against a lower division side - they fight until the end and that's what happened. Maybe we could have played a bit better in the second half but it was a tough match and in the end we have to be happy to go through.

'It was a good battle and I'm happy because maybe the League Cup is a competition in which I will play, so I'm very happy we got through to the next round and hopefully it will mean another game for me.'

Jermaine Pennant on his team's relief at the win -

'I think we were all relieved when Lucas' goal went in. We'd missed a few chances and Crewe were also defending well, so it was nice to see the ball hit the net.

'Now we'll be looking forward to seeing who we get in the next round.'

Danny O'Donnell on facing his former club-

'It has been an awesome night. From the first whistle, and having 'You'll Never Walk Alone' sung by a packed Kop, to the way we played was a brilliant experience for everyone.

'I must admit the heart raced a bit when I saw Torres coming on and then Robbie Keane. They are top quality players and to play against them is something I will never forget.

'That really is the last thing you need when you see them two warming up with 20 minutes to go!'
