Liverpool want domestic rival in Champions League quarters, says Roberto Firmino

The Reds confirmed safe passage to the last eight on Tuesday with a draw against Porto after beating the Portuguese outfit 5-0 in the first leg. Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Bobby Firmino all notched at the Estádio do Dragão on Valentine's Day.

"It will be a good test of how Virgil Van Dijk, who has strolled through some games without having a hard time, will get on against a much tougher test with United's attacking power and pace". However, the job is not all done as bitter rivals Manchester United, or Premier League leaders City can draw them in the quarterfinals.

"Manchester United are very experienced and very fit, as we saw last night - they can score late, so I don't think they are too anxious about playing on Saturday and then again on Tuesday".

An own goal by Eric Bailly got Liverpool back into the game but United held on for the three points. They can drop the ball, literally, sometimes, but play with a vicious team spirit that seems to carry them from match to match.

Klopp, who is in his third season in charge at Anfield, is still searching for his first trophy as Liverpool manager, but his side remain in this season's Champions League, while at the same time pushing for a second-place finish in the Premier League.

"I don't like to talk about the future but if we continue like that in this form, we can see ourselves in the final".

I think he's a bit fed up with all of the suggestions that he can't deliver in the big games but I think it has something which has been caused by something out of his control - Manchester United's tactics against the top six.

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Liverpool FC are ready to spend big on bolstering their squad in the summer transfer window.

"We are all concentrating on that, and that is the aim at this stage".

Porto had to make the most impossible things against Liverpool if they wanted to move to the quarter final of UCL.
