Liverpool secured their place in UCL quarter final

Liverpool secured their place in UCL quarter final

Tottenham were cruelly denied a place in this season's Champions League Quarter-Finals after being defeated 2-1 at Wembley last night by a clinical Juventus side. And Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand is of the opinion that his former club's bitter rivals have what it takes to win the Champions League for an English record-extending sixth time this season.

"We feel we have played well against the top English club".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said that he is "happy with the decision" of referee Craig Pawson to not send off Liverpool counterpart Jurgen Klopp during Saturday's clash at Old Trafford. If you want to have the most fluent offensive football and be successful then I think Pep Guardiola is a good choice to be honest. If United get the first goal then they won't come out and give him that space.

The draw for the quarterfinals of the 2017-18 Champions League will be made at 11 a.m. BST / 7 a.m. ET on Friday, March 16. "Yes, we'd like a draw against an English club".

It will be a good test of how Virgil Van Dijk, who has strolled through some games without having a hard time, will get on against a much tougher test with United's attacking power and pace. "We feel we can beat any side on our day, and we don't mind who we get".

"I think he has more (appearances) than our whole squad", said Klopp, who embraced Casillas at full-time.

"We needed to try to break them down but it wasn't good enough". 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.

"I don't like to talk about the future but if we continue like that in this form, we can see ourselves in the final".

A win for third-placed Liverpool will take them to 63 points and a point above United into second. "You have to play against the big teams".
