Liverpool not practicing penalties - Benitez

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez says his players won't be practicing their penalties this week ahead of the second-leg of their Champions League quarterfinal against Arsenal.

He told liverpoolfc.tv: "I don't believe too much in practicing penalties.

"I am a believer in the heart and quality of the players. We have some good players to take penalties. We practiced before the Chelsea semi-final but not too much, because when you are walking from the halfway line to the box it is just about being calm.

"Sometimes an 18-year-old player can be really good, sometimes a 31-year-old can be not so good.

"But I will try not to think about penalties. We will try to use our experience during the game."
