Philippe Coutinho admits that he cannot wait to line up for Liverpool in the Champions League this week.

The Reds are set to make their long-awaited return to Europe’s elite club competition when they face Ludogorets Razgrad in their Group B opener at Anfield on Tuesday.

And the Liverpool playmaker is relishing the club’s return to top European action at Anfield.

“I’ve heard all about the experience of playing at Anfield in the Champions League – I can’t wait for it to happen,” said Coutinho.

“I know about Liverpool’s tradition in the competition, so hopes will be high. But considering Liverpool as one of the favourites for the Champions League before we kick a ball is something for the fans, not for the team.

“I believe that we have a strong squad, new players have been brought in and we are in a good position to perform well in the Champions League, but without calling ourselves favourites or anything like that.”
