  • Liverpool sealed the joint biggest away win in the knock-out stages of the Champions League with their 5-0 thrashing of Porto

The Reds are through to the last eight of the competition for the first time since 2009 after beating Porto 5-0 on aggregate.

The tie is effectively over as the Reds scored five away goals in the 5-0 win in Portugal.

A hat-trick from Sadio Mane and goals from Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino sealed the emphatic victory over the Portuguese side in Porto that eventually saw them progress.

Despite that there has so far been no announcement of a pre-contract deal, and the midfielder has said there's no agreement "with any club".

"We have shown in the past few seasons we can beat all the English clubs".

There will be seven other very good teams-maybe four of them will be from England, which doesn't make to easier, to be honest. We feel we can beat any side on our day. We don't mind. We are not afraid.

The in-form 26-year-old added: "Of course they are good teams".

Gini Wijnaldum could also be pushing for a recall after recovering from an illness that's kept him out of the last two games but a place on the bench might be the best he can hope for this weekend.




At times, it felt like the English club was going through the motions, especially since it faces a huge Premier League game against Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday.

"If you are in the draw [at this stage] then you cannot be afraid of anyone".

"I don't think it's a problem if you play well and don't score, when you are creating chances".

Manchester City will contest a Champions League quarter-final after beating FC Basel in the last 16.

When queried about the prospect of drawing against an English club, Firmino showed no sweat of fear and flaunted his club's record against the top six sides this season, claiming that Klopp's men won't be losing sleep over such draw.

"It is a big game against Liverpool", United manager Jose Mourinho said.

Liverpool back in QF=THERE'S a familiar name back in the quarter-finals.
