Liverpool cruised into the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in nine years 5-0 on aggregate over Porto, despite settling for a goalless draw in an uninspiring last 16, second leg at Anfield on Tuesday.

Spurs need to get past last year's beaten finalists Juventus at Wembley - where it's 2-all after the first leg in Italy.

Liverpool midfielder Emre Can has revealed any contract talks regarding his stay at the club, or a move to another, will have to wait until the end of the season.

Though Klopp has never recorded a domestic victory over historic rivals Manchester United, his side did eliminate Louis van Gaal's United from the Europa League on their way to the final in 2016.

"I think we will have a chance for sure to go to the semis".

Attention has quickly turned to who they might face in the next round, with an English opponent possible. They are all good teams (left in the draw).

"Of course I have to think about my footballing future", said Can.

"If you are in the draw, then you can not be afraid of anyone".

"I think he has more (appearances) than our whole squad", said Klopp, who embraced Casillas at full-time. The visitors became the first team to stop Liverpool from scoring in this season's competition, not that Klopp minded too much."It feels good, to be honest", he said. But that is a long away ahead. That's all I'm focused on now.

We're inching closer to crowning this season's Champions League winner-but there's still a lot of soccer to be played. "We are all concentrating on that, and that is the aim at this stage".

The former BK Hacken star thanked the travelling supporters on Twitter, calling for attention to be switched to the Portuguese top-flight following their exit from the Champions League.

The Champions League quarterfinal draw will take place Friday, March 16 at 6 a.m. EST in Nyon, Switzerland.
