Liverpool's Finnan: FA Cup exit won't affect Champions League form

Liverpool fullback Steve Finnan insists they can shake-off their FA Cup humiliation and beat Champions League opponents Inter Milan this week.

"Obviously Inter are a massive obstacle and they're going to be really tough to beat but we think if we play like we have in the last couple of seasons then we can go through," said Finnan.

"Some people have us down as the underdogs because of the form we've been in and the fact they're top of the league. That's maybe not a bad thing for us because it's been the same before most of the best European nights we've had in my time at Liverpool.

"Juve, Milan in Istanbul, Chelsea and Barcelona were all expected to beat us and none of them were able to do it. None of them deserved to do it either.

"If we approach this game with the same mentality then we'll be tough for anybody to beat."
