The pressure is on you, Adomah tells Liverpool

Middlesbrough winger Albert Adomah is relishing the challenge of testing himself against Liverpool on his first-ever visit to Anfield.

All the pressure will be on Liverpool tonight, insists Albert Adomah. The Boro winger will make his first ever visit to Anfield for the club’s mouth-watering Capital One Cup third round clash against Brendan Rodgers’ side.

The visitors go into the game on the back of three successive wins but Liverpool are reeling from three losses in their last four top-flight fixtures.

However, the Reds narrowly missed out on the title last season and Rodgers’ squad is packed full of talent.

That’s why Adomah is relishing the challenge of testing himself against such quality opposition.

“We can learn something from a Premier League side, especially if they play a strong side,” he said.

“We are going there to win but we are obviously underdogs so we know that there is no pressure on us.

“We also know that there’s pressure on them, I know it’s a cup game but there is still pressure on them while we’ve got nothing to lose.

“It will be a good experience for everyone who is involved,” he added.

“I’ve never played there before and I’ve never been there before, I’ve just seen Liverpool on TV, so it will be my first experience of Anfield as a person and a professional player.“I’m sure it will be a great atmosphere and a great experience for our fans.”
