Denmark international left buzzing after Anfield debut

New Liverpool signing Christian Poulsen has been left on a high after making his Anfield debut against Trabzonspor. The Denmark international, a summer signing from Juventus, featured for the full 90 minutes in Thursday's 1-0 Europa League play-off first leg clash. The referee delayed the start of the game to allow the famous 'You'll Never Walk Alone' to finish on the PA system and Poulsen admits hearing the legendary song reverberating around the stadium was a special feeling. He now cannot wait for more as he seeks to help new boss Roy Hodgson bring silverware back to Merseyside. Poulsen told the club's official website: "It was something really special being out on the pitch hearing the Kop singing 'You'll Never Walk Alone'.


"I was sat in the stand for the Arsenal game and it was great to see it, but to be out there on the pitch with them tonight was fantastic. "It was nice to play 90 minutes and it felt good to be out there and I am looking forward to playing many more games for this club. "We probably should have won by more than one goal but we kept a clean sheet which is always important in Europe. "We missed a penalty and we had some good chances but didn't take them. I thought we were much better in the second half and we had a bit more control of the game. "We know we have a job to do next week. It will be a tough match over in Turkey but we'll be ready for it."
City challenge
The 30-year-old midfielder is now hoping to making his Premier League debut in Monday night's clash with Manchester City, which is being shown live on Sky Sports HD 1 and 1. He added: "We'll have to wait and see what team the manager wants to play, but we are looking forward to it. "I think we have got a good squad here and you need a strong squad to compete with the other big teams in this league. "We showed last Sunday this team is ready and hopefully we can do well and get a victory in Manchester."
