Roberto Firmino Names His Ideal Opponents for Next Week's Champions League Quarters

Roberto Firmino Names His Ideal Opponents for Next Week's Champions League Quarters

Sure they lost 5-0 to Manchester City at the beginning of the season but they remain the only side to beat Pep Guardiola's in the Premier League.

"And this team seems like it's peaking at the right time".

Liverpool midfielder Emre Can has told Juventus that he wants to consider all the offers on his table before taking a final decision in the summer.

While Hargreaves and Ferdinand focused on the Reds' attack, Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard suggested it is defensive improvements that make the Reds a risky proposition. Our record is good against them.

"The goalkeeper's (Loris Karius) in great form, (Virgil) van Dijk's made a big impact, but they've cut out the mistakes".

The last time the five times European champions reached this stage of Europe's elite club competition was in 2009 when they went out to Chelsea in a dramatic 7-5 aggregate defeat.

He said: "Last eight is cool". We are also both vying for second place so that adds a little bit of extra spice to the occasion.

"I think especially over the last couple of months we have improved that". The next round will be very hard.

Liverpool have an outstanding record against the top sides in the Premier League since Jurgen Klopp took over at the club and there's a school of thought that this habit of beating the big boys could translate well into the Champions League knockouts. It's sometimes hard to predict how Jose Mourinho will respond, but we know Liverpool like to fly out of the blocks so I think it's likely to be a cagey start to the game.

Porto boss Sergio Conceicao believes the Reds can exceed that target, saying: "Liverpool are definitely one of the teams that can win this year".

He said he naturally needs to think about his future, but all contract negotiations with any club are now being blocked by his agent so he can focus exclusively on football. A goal galore which Liverpool has produced throughout the season under the German has been a display of one of its kind which the team was missing since Luis Suarez days.

'We feel we have played well against the top English clubs and shown we can beat them.
