Liverpool do not fear any opponents in Champions League, says Roberto Firmino

"I think it was time that we showed up again", said Klopp.

Forward Roberto Firmino insists Liverpool are not scared of anyone in the Champions League and do not fear meeting English opposition in the last eight.

Liverpool played out a 0-0 draw with Porto on Tuesday, meaning that they sailed through to the quarter finals with a aggregate score of 5-0.

The Reds broke their club record transfer fee when they paid Southampton £75m for Dutch centre-back Van Dijk in the last window.

The Reds have spent some wild sums on the likes of Virgil Van Dijk and Naby Keita, yet still feel like they are at least several players short of truly competing.

We're halfway through the Champions League second round and thoughts are already turning to the quarter finals and who will play who.

"If it's not the right player, if it's not the value of the player in our minds, then you can't pay it". "We feel we can beat any side on our day, and we don't mind who we get", reckoned the Brazilian who has been instrumental for Liverpool this season. "This year, we belong there, to be honest, it should not be a big surprise and the next round will be very hard, there are seven other very good teams involved, so maybe five or four are from England, it doesn't make it easier to be honest", he said. They won the match by destroying the Portuguese team completely. "You have to play against the big teams".

"I want to be part of it and am I happy to be part of the squad but that is a long away ahead", he added.

"We had a good season so far because we're still playing in the Champions League and in third position in the Premier League".

"The season is not over, I have my objectives with Liverpool and I want to concentrate on them".
