Cape Town - Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is confident that the Reds can get past anyone in the Champions League, as they prepare to face Sevilla on Wednesday.

Jurgen Klopp's men beat Hoffenheim over two legs in the Champions League qualifiers in August, after managing a fourth-place finish in the Premier League last season, and will get their group stage underway against Sevilla at Anfield.

Henderson is delighted to be back in Europe's elite competition, but admits the hard work only starts now.

"Well, the hard work and commitment of everyone involved last season means we are back in it now - but this is where the hard work begins again. It’s a really tough group we’re in and Sevilla were in the first two pots for the draw for a reason - they are an outstanding side and have a pedigree in Europe," Henderson wrote in This is Anfield website.

"But to be honest, one of the reasons that we as players are so delighted to be back in the Champions League is that we believe we can take on and beat anyone in it. We respect Sevilla but we don’t fear them. 

"We know that to get a result tonight we’ll have to be at our very best and that’s something we are used to in the Premier League week in, week out.

"We all know our jobs this evening, and we know that the supporters know the importance of the role they can and do always play for us on occasions like this.

"Hopefully, together, we can make this the start of a European campaign we can remember fondly in years to come. That’s certainly our aim."
