Sewart Downing believes that Liverpool are capable of overturning Zenit St Petersburg's 2-0 advantage in the Europa League on Thursday.

Stewart Downing has said that he is confident Liverpool can overturn a 2-0 deficit in the second leg of their Europa League fixture later this week.

The Reds face Zenit St Petersburg on Thursday at Anfield for a place in the last 16 of the competition.

The 28-year-old told the team's website: "We lost 2-0 but you saw the chances we had, six or seven great chances in a European game away is quite good.

"We didn't finish it off and made it hard for ourselves, but with the crowd behind us on a big European night I'm confident with the way we're playing that we'll win the game.

"Scoring goals and putting chances away, that's what wins you games. The goals [against Swansea on Sunday] were great finishes, we have to do that week in, week out, not just now and again."

Hulk and Sergei Semak netted for the Russian side in the first leg last week.
