Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey: I hope Liverpool clash will be career highlight

Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey is excited facing Liverpool tonight at Anfield.

Atletico are on Merseyside defending a 1-0 lead for the second-leg of their Champions League round 16 tie.

"Yes (we're ready for Liverpool). As players, it's always nice to play with fans on the field. We are prepared. For me it is a dream. I always watch Liverpool play and it is a dream to play against them in their stadium," Partey said.

"I hope this stays forever with me in my career."

The midfielder added: "They are doing well. It is a difficult game for them and for us. We have to be focused, because we know it will be difficult.

"If we are not, many things can happen."
