Kuyt looks to ‘œspecial’ second leg

Goalscoring hero of last night Dirk Kuyt has set his sights on finishing the job against Arsenal next Tuesday, when Liverpool take a 1-1 draw back to Anfield in the second leg of the all-English Champions League quarter-final tie.

Kuyt’s equaliser three minutes after Emmanuel Adebayor had given the Gunners a first half lead at the Emirates Stadium secured an important 1-1 draw for the Reds.

After Saturday’s Premier League clash with Arsene Wenger’s side in London, it’s back to Merseyside to battle it out for a place in the Champions League semi-final against the winner of Chelsea vs Fenerbache (1st leg score: 1-2).

Kuyt says, “They have a great side but we’re playing at Anfield and we’ve shown we can do special things there.

“Everyone knows what European nights are like at Anfield. Everyone knows what we’ve done there over the last few years. Hopefully the same will happen next week and we’ll get into the semi-finals.”
