Mousa confident ahead of Lazio test
Mousa Dembele is looking to kick-off our Europa League campaign in style in tonight’s high-profile Group J opener against SS Lazio.
It will be Mousa’s first European experience at the Lane and our first competitive match against the Italian giants.
Lazio arrive in London in fine form, having won their first three matches in Serie A and both legs of their Europa League play-off against ND Mura of Slovenia.
“It’s a big name, a big club,” said Mousa. “It won’t be easy, but we have so much quality that if we play our game, we can do something at home, for sure.
“I know a few players there, unbelievable players. I’ve played against Hernanes before, an incredible footballer. I was impressed with him.
“But we have a lot of players that you could say the same thing about.
“We play at home, I have a lot of respect for Lazio but I know we can do something on Thursday.”
