Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson: We have our Champions League targets

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson admits there was some relief qualifying for the Champions League last season.

Liverpool host AC Milan tomorrow night at Anfield.

"It is really hard [to win the Champions League]," Alisson said.

"Myself and my team-mates, we will try again really hard and it starts against AC Milan.

"It's a really hard opponent but we have our goals and our targets.

"First, it is to go through to the next phase and obviously the biggest goal is to win the Champions League."

On his goal at West Brom, he added: "That was good, huh? It was a good feeling!

"I think everyone has a good feeling who is not a Liverpool supporter. I think I made a lot of people happy.

"But yes, it was really important for us as a team.

"I told the team after I scored the goal, I said it would be even more important if we qualify for the Champions League and we are here now.

"I am happy about that and I am really sure that what helps more wasn't just that goal, but what the team does in every game to try and achieve the victory and the three points.

"It wasn't just my goal that brought us here to the Champions League, but [also] what we did during the season and that was really difficult for us with everything."
