Liverpool are back where they belong: Klopp


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

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.

Having been without seven first-team players at Selhurst Park on Monday, United will be hoping that Anthony Martial at the very least may be able to make it for Liverpool's visit. Our record is good against them. Marcus Rashford's high-impact display off the bench against Crystal Palace may well have won him a starting place in the mind of his manager, while the Portuguese could also have been persuaded by the second-half entrance of Juan Mata.

"That's how our life is - do what you have to do and after that, start thinking about the next step".

The Reds advanced to the last eight of Europe's premier club tournament after a 0-0 draw with Porto at Anfield which saw them progress 5-0 on aggregate.

And Klopp does not feel that the Red Devils will be at any significant disadvantage despite the two games being fairly close to one another.

They've previously drawn with both Manchester United and Chelsea and are still to play them again this term.

Manchester City will contest a Champions League quarter-final after beating FC Basel in the last 16. Despite dominating the game in a majority of the ninety minutes, Liverpool failed to break the deadlock at Anfield but their five-goal thrashing of Porto in the first leg meant they were always the favourites to race through.
