The Reds will interrupt their unstoppable title charge to resume their defence of the Champions League, as they face Atletico Madrid.
And Wijnaldum is ready for a big test against Atletico, and is not buying into the theory that Liverpool are under more pressure simply because they are the current trophy holders.
He told Liverpool’s official website: “No, not really, because we are doing pretty much the same thing we were doing last season,” the midfielder stated.
“We are mostly working on improving the team and becoming a team that is really difficult to beat, so it is essentially the same as last year.
“What we are trying to do is give everything we’ve got and we’ll see what happens at the end of the season.”
