The Reds secured their progression with a 5-0 aggregate scoreline, having scored all fives goals away from home in the first leg of their last-16 match-up. 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.

'Yes, we'd like a draw against an English club, ' said Firmino, whose breakthrough performance for Liverpool came on the night he tormented Manchester United in the Europa League last 16 at Anfield two years ago, scoring in a 2-0 first leg win.

Liverpool midfielder Emre Can remains focused on playing for the Premier League club this campaign, saying that his agent had blocked all negotiations regarding his future until the end of the season.

"Mourinho will have some sort of plan to nullify Liverpool and hurt them where he can, so it should be a good game".

"After the group stage we improved our reputation in Europe", the Argentine said.

"I never had a time schedule in my mind where I thought "we have to be there and then have to be there".

The former Leeds and Manchester City man has been hugely influential in the Reds' European campaign, claiming more assists than anyone else in this season's Champions League.

A three-time Champions League victor with Real Madrid, Casillas' love affair with the competition began in November 1997 when, at the age of 16, he was taken out of school to be in Real Madrid's squad for a Champions League group game at Rosenborg.

And even though Naby Keita is joining Liverpool in the summer, the report said that Klopp wants to add more dynamism to the midfield and that's what Seri can bring to the table.

"Actually, we didn't think for a second when we played Newcastle that we had to play on Tuesday again". But I think we will have a chance for sure to go to the semis, that is of course the target. "I think we are a team who will cause problems to others".

On Monday, Champions-elect Manchester City head to relegation-threatened Stoke knowing that four more wins will guarantee them the title.
