Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish leads his side out for their long-awaited return to Wembley on Sunday confident his players can handle the burden of expectation.
The Reds have not won a trophy since the FA Cup in 2006 or been in a final since being beaten by AC Milan in the Champions League the following year. Since then the personnel has changed significantly but Dalglish has faith in the experience of his squad to bring home some much-needed silverware.
Dalglish said: "I'm not very emotional. I suppose like everything else in life every person is not going to act the same to situations. Emotion and nerves will be helpful to some and detrimental to others but is part and parcel of football and it is how you handle it. There are a lot of people with different personalities who will handle it totally differently."
