Liverpool defender 'angry and hungry' ahead of Barcelona tie

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren says he has been left 'angry and hungry' by people who have written them off in their Champions League semifinal tie against Barcelona. 

Liverpool faces a daunting task in overturning a 3-0 first-leg defeat when they host Barcelona for the second leg on Tuesday night at Anfield.

Lovren, who spoke to Press Association Sport, said they have the capability of turning the tie around, and they will fight to make it a special night at Anfield. 

"It makes me more angry. Angry and hungry to show them we are capable of doing something special at Anfield,"  he said. 

"We have big players, and big players should show in big games, and I think this is one of those games on Tuesday, so I expect one of the biggest games at Anfield. This is why we are Liverpool. This is why we are a unique club," he added. 

The Reds will be looking to achieve an unlikely feat against the Blaugrana, and will be forced to do so without two of their main attacking weapons in Mohammed Salah and Roberto Firminho. 

Salah was ruled out of the clash after colliding with Newcastle goalkeeper during an English Premier League match on Sunday. 

Firminho, who did not feature in the first leg, is still recuperating and will miss Tuesday's clash as well.
