Defender Joe Gomez insists Liverpool cannot afford to change their game-plan against Roma if they want to secure a place in the Champions League final.

Jurgen Klopp's side take a 5-2 lead into the second leg at the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday but the Reds will be look to extend not defend that advantage.

"We have shown this season our best form of defence is attack so we will probably just do that again," said Gomez after Saturday's disappointing goalless draw at home to Stoke, which saw Liverpool creep closer to securing a top-four finish.

"Obviously we will be wary they have their threats and the two goals they scored will keep us on our toes and we will be defensively aware.

"But I don't think we can go there and afford to just sit off and try to defend the whole game because that will bring pressure and that is not the type of football we play.

"We want to go there on the front foot and try to add to the goals."
