"Liverpool are having an excellent season will play with confidence. If we overcome this then PSV will be able to win.
"I believe that Liverpool and Atletico are the favourites in this group are but we want to cause problems for our rivals and fight until the last moment.
"Torres, Keane and Kuyt are a phenomenal offensive line. For me is one of the best in Europe today and really is hard to stop this. We are obliged to give 150 per cent on the pitch this week.
"To play in a stadium like Anfield is sensational because it is steeped in history. The atmosphere will help PSV to increase our level this Wednesday.
"We don't arrive in England with fear. If that was certain we'd prefer to stay in Holland and avoid travelling, but PSV is a champion club with courage and ambition."
