Jurgen Klopp’s men go into the semi-final second leg 1-0 down on aggregate after Adrian Lopez’s injury-time strike last week but Mignolet believes they can overcome that deficit.

The Belgium keeper is looking for the fans to replicate the special atmosphere they created in their memorable comeback win over Borussia Dortmund in the last round.

He told the club’s website: “We know when the fans are behind us, it’s so much easier.

“At home there’s always something possible, a European night at Anfield. We showed it against Manchester United and Dortmund this year, and over the years there have been so many great fixtures in Europe at Anfield.

“We’re obviously confident that it’s still possible but we have to stay calm and as players focus on our jobs, to play at our best to try and get through.

“That’s what everyone wants in the dressing room – everybody in Liverpool – to go to the final.”
