Liverpool belong in Champions League quarters, says Klopp

James Milner: Liverpool must take pressure off Mohamed Salah

Liverpool FC will now switch their attentions towards their crunch clash against Manchester United in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Saturday lunchtime.

Jurgen Klopp's men cruised through the last 16, drawing 0-0 with Porto on Tuesday to complete a 5-0 aggregate success.

But the Reds boss was not concerned with what was largely a lacklustre display, and instead put his focus on the side reaching a level the club hadn't seen in Europe in almost a decade.

And Lovren believes that Liverpool's blistering form, with more goals in this season's competition than any other team, has instilled a belief in going all the way.

Liverpool will discover their quarter-final opponents when the draw is made on 16 March (11:00 GMT).

"I think he has more (appearances) than our whole squad", said Klopp, who embraced Casillas at full-time. "But being a good lad helps a lot to settle in the team immediately and that's what he did".

Tickets for those games will go on sale following Monday's formal announcement of the tournament bracket and host sites. This is the eighth straight year of Turner Sports and CBS Sports' marriage of broadcasting the NCAA Tournament.

"I think if we are ready and prepared to fight until the end, I am a big believer that we can see ourselves into the final".

However, he did not make his Champions League debut until nearly two years later in a group game at Olympiakos.

"It has been four years since the club has won a title and people deserve it". Porto coach Sergio Conceicao made 10 changes from the first leg, but top-scorer Vincent Aboubakar was one of those to come back into the side having missed the first leg through injury.

And it was the hosts who had the better of the chances, with Sadio Mane - the scorer of a hat-trick in the first leg, hooking a volley over the bar and then striking a low shot against the post in a low-key first half.

But Klopp admits his side are ready to take on anyone.

And Can has admitted that he is looking to evade any English opposition at this stage of the Champions League. The visitors became the first team to stop Liverpool from scoring in this season's competition, not that Klopp minded too much. What the future holds, I don't know.
