Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool are back where we belong

"As a player you don't want to see others around you panicking and that's one thing I've never seen him do", Johnson told talkSPORT.

Sadio Mane conducted an outrageous piece of skill and applied the finish to put the Reds 1-0 up in the first half, and left the hosts needing to score twice to progress.

Liverpool a year ago had an English game against City, I was not here, but it could happen again.

"We were playing too deep, we didn't take risks, I don't know why". That says something about the team itself.

"A lot of teams struggle here to get a result, but we still did it".

After the 3-1 win which gave the Reds the qualification for the quarter finals, Fabinho has spoken to the Brazilian press about the match, claiming the Anfield side were very confident they would leave Germany with the qualification.

Bayern coach Niko Kovac, whose side went top of the Bundesliga at the weekend after scoring 13 goals in their last two matches, could only praise their opponents.

"You saw after the second goal how much quality they have", the Croatian said. Liverpool, however, kept up the pressure and were rewarded when Dutchman Van Dijk grabbed his third goal in his last four appearances in all competitions.

Guardiola said: "I would like to be more who we are in the first 25 minutes but we were solid, we didn't concede chances and in the last 15 minutes [before the break] and second half we were incredibly good".

Defender Mats Hummels, formerly coached by Klopp when the pair were at Borussia Dortmund together, was also gracious in defeat.

Last season's runners-up Liverpool completed a full house of English teams in the last eight, the first time this has happened since the 2008/9 season, with Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Manchester City already through.

"I was alone sometimes and I didn't have help, I couldn't do something and it was very hard", he said. "Still this was not a great game of football".
