Liverpool do not fear any opponents in the Champions League - Firmino

Liverpool do not fear any opponents in the Champions League - Firmino

Four teams have already gained access to the quarter-finals of the Champions League. "But I don't think it matters to us (who we get)". 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.

That said, Gerrard won't have forgotten Liverpool's 4-3 win over the Citizens in January.

As we prepare for this huge Premier League clash, are asking our readers to decide upon who makes it into a combined Manchester United and Liverpool team.

"Yes, we'd like a draw against an English club", said Firmino, according to Sky Sports News.

"I never had a time schedule in my mind where I thought "we have to be there and then have to be there". I have my objectives with Liverpool and I want to concentrate on them. He has kind of unbalanced the team because we had been playing very well with Anthony Martial on the left. "We feel we have respect for the brand of football we show, they respect us in Europe we feel". Also in the draw for the last 16 will be Real Madrid, which beat Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 away on Tuesday to clinch a 5-2 aggregate win in the marquee matchup in the round of 16.

Liverpool's Brazilian midfielder Roberto Firmino controls the ball during the UEFA Champions League round of sixteen second leg football match between Liverpool and FC Porto at Anfield in Liverpool, north-west England on March 6, 2018. "I think we are a team who will cause problems to others".

The Anfield club will face Manchester United on Sunday in the Premier League, aiming to regain the second spot. Andrew Robertson was not a part of the Liverpool squad that played Porto but should be back in action this weekend. Porto coach Sergio Conceicao was even more confident about Liverpool's chances.

It's not about money, and they make that clear, but the idea of entering through the front door at Santiago Bernabeu "doesn't leave him indifferent". We want to finish in second place in the Premier League, we're in the Champions League quarter-finals and we want to progress.
