Atletico Madrid midfielder, Saul believes his club can hurt Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League because they have what it takes.
Saul has said since there is no memory in football, what Liverpool had done before the game will be out the window and it will be a level playing field for both clubs.
According to him, the fact that Atleti will be playing at home means the players have to take advantage of the atmosphere the fans will provide.
He added that he is sure the Spanish club can hurt Liverpool and exploit their weaknesses.
His words, “You break them.
“There’s no memory in football: what you did yesterday is no use.
“We had a good run before Christmas then we fell away and it was hard. People wanted to kill us. Do I think it’s unfair? Honestly, yes. But it’s life.
“People whistle Cholo [Simeone], important players; the fans are demanding. If we win two or three games, it’ll change again.
“We know how we can hurt Liverpool, their strengths and weaknesses, and we always compete against big teams.
“We have to make the most of the home game. There will be an incredible atmosphere, more than ever.”
“They have those perros de presa [hunting dogs] in the middle who run, press.
“It’s not just running for the sake of running: they do things that aren’t normal and it looks disordered but it’s ordered, mechanised.
“One comes out here and you think: ‘That’s mad, why’s he there?’ But the other man knows and comes from here.
“Klopp said they play with their heart, but it’s planned too. One breaks out to press, wild, but they follow. It’s very hard to escape when they come at you like that.
“It’s incredible: they press like animals, because they know that even if they get turned there will be seven of them running like mad to get back.
“Liverpool are very complete, a great team in every area [but] they find it hardest when you’re deep because they’re very, very, very good in transition.
“I watched them against Norwich and if it wasn’t for [Sadio] Mané’s extraordinary control, they don’t win.
“They’ve won lots of games they could have drawn or lost, which tells you something about what they have inside. It’s not luck. It’s work, sacrifice, not giving up a single ball for lost.”
