"We know all about Liverpool and they are expected to win, so the pressure is on them," Chukwueze said, as per BBC Sport Africa.

"We have a squad and manager good enough to compete against any team in the world. Because of the way Liverpool play some people have already made their own predictions but that is normal in football.

"We have a job to do and we are not going to Liverpool to lose. Why not aim for the best result over there? And that is what we hope to do."
