Liverpool attacker Dirk Kuyt will put sentiment to one side for their Europa League clash with Utrecht.

Kuyt is a former Utrecht player and is looking forward to the homecoming.

"If we beat Utrecht in Utrecht, it will be great because we would have six points in the group already and we would almost be in the next round," he said.

"They have had some great results there, like beating Celtic 4-0. The 0-0 result in their first group game against Napoli was decent too.

"They seem to make it very difficult for big teams. If you ask the Ajax players if they like going to Utrecht, then everyone would say 'no' because it's very difficult to get a good result there."
