Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has said he and his teammates “want to win everything” ahead of a busy period that could see them end the season with an unprecedented quadruple.

The Reds have already won the EFL Cup and are one point behind Manchester City in the Premier League title race and are still in the UEFA Champions League and FA Cup.

Liverpool will have 13 extra games to play between now and the end of May if they can reach the finals of both competitions, but Alisson is confident the club can face a busy schedule.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final against Benfica, their 3-1 lead, the Brazilian striker was asked about the physical needs of being in so many competitions.

“At this level, we need to prepare for that and we are there,” he said. “We have a great staff, we train that every day. We have set goals, for every final, every game, and as many games as we can for the season.

“We want to win everything, so we are ready for that. Yes, it is not easy, sometimes we feel tired, but you need to keep in mind that you are strong enough to face all the challenges.”

Alisson has played 41 games for Liverpool in all competitions this season, keeping 22 sheets clean, and paid for the players in front of him.

“It’s very good [to have a strong defense as a goalkeeper]. I have top players who play in front of me. Whoever plays, they always do at a very high level, so I’m very happy to be part of this team,” he added.

The former Roma goalkeeper conceded power to Benfica ahead of the second leg on Wednesday at Anfield.

“It was a tough game,” Alisson admits. “They have fast strikers, they have a strong striker like the ninth player [Darwin Nunez]. I know Everton of Brazil, I know his features, how good he is.

“They have given us a lot of work to do, but we are ready to face them, we are ready and ready to face that game to achieve our goals.”
