Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez says Liverpool play like animals ahead of Champions League clash

Liverpool have ‘hunting dogs’ in midfield and ‘press like animals’ according to Atletico Madrid star Saul Niguez as he prepares to face the Reds in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Atletico host the defending champions in the first leg of their last 16 tie in Spain and know that they have a tough task on their hands against the runaway leaders of the Premier League.

Liverpool’s win at Norwich on Saturday gave them a 25-point lead at the top of the Premier League table and keeps them full of confidence as they return to European action.

25-year-old Saul is hugely impressed by Jurgen Klopp’s side and has clearly spent a lot of time watching them as he understands the method to the German’s madness.

The Spaniard feels the savage nature of Liverpool’s pressing is almost animalistic and expects a very tough night out against them at the Wanda Metropolitano.

‘They have those hunting dogs in the middle who run, press,’ Saul told the Guardian. ‘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.
‘[Jurgen] 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.’

Still regarded as one of the toughest nuts to crack in Europe, Atletico are having a poor season by their standards due to a chronic lack of goals.

Just 25 goals in 24 La Liga games this season have restricted Diego Simeone’s side to just 10 wins in that time and they are down in fourth in the table.

Only a rock solid defence, which has conceded just 17 goals this campaign, has kept them challenging.

Saul admires Liverpool’s ability to turn possible draws and defeats into victories through their incessant hard work.

‘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] Mane?s extraordinary control, they don?t win. They?ve won lots of games they could ...
