PREMIER - Liverpool, Neco Williams: "It's going to be tough against Preston"
Speaking up about Reds' upcoming League Cup away match against Preston North End, Liverpool and Welsh senior national team 20-year old right-back Neco Williams stated:
"From what the lads have been doing, especially in the last few weeks, we just want to carry on that form and hopefully just get the win on Wednesday night and put a great performance in. With this type of game, you know that they're going to come out with everything, they're going to give everything.
It's not usual for them to face Liverpool, because obviously we're in the Premier League and they're in the Championship, so there's not many times we come together and play. So, we know that they're going to give everything. They're going to come at us with 100 per cent but we know we need to be switched on. We need to play our football, and hopefully if that comes together we'll get the win.
Every training session we train, it's always like our last. If we're playing five-a-side games, everyone's always so competitive, there's arguments – but that's just our team. We're so competitive and we just want to win everything. So playing in this type of tournament is going to hopefully bring the best out of us and we can win as many games as we can.
I made my debut against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup [in 2019], so it's always been special to me playing in this type of game. Playing for Liverpool Football Club, you want to win as many trophies as you can. To win the Carabao Cup will be special because all the youngsters have been playing in it, because the more senior lads [have] had more game time.
I always love playing these type of games because you don't know who you're going to come up against – it could be anyone from the Premier League, Championship or even lower. On Wednesday night we've got Preston, a top side, a good Championship side, so we know it's going to be a tough game. But hopefully we can go up there, put a performance in like the lads have been doing all season and get the win".
