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.

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are also through but Tottenham are out after defeat to Italian champions Juventus on Wednesday.

Liverpool now prepare for the biggest game of the season, facing fiercest rivals Manchester United away, especially with the fact that whoever wins goes to second place.

"I've always thought that for Liverpool away from home they struggled with the size of the pitch, despite them not being hugely different on paper".

Manchester United, who host Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday, and Chelsea both play their second-leg matches next week.

Can's Liverpool contract runs out at the end of the season and he has so far failed to take up the club's offers of a lucrative new deal.

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

Manchester City will contest a Champions League quarter-final after beating FC Basel in the last 16. They return as the competition's top scorers this season with 28 goals and will be feared by the other qualifiers."This year, we belong there", Klopp said, "it should not be a surprise".

Starting Monday, we have posted a poll asking for you to vote on who makes it into the XI.

"I think he has more (appearances) than our whole squad", said Klopp, who embraced Casillas at full-time.

There have been a few cracking encounters between these two but the last four games have ended in a draw with Mourinho putting his defensive style onto this encounter and stifling the game. This is our first year when we had the opportunity to do it so I think we are in time.

Jurgen Klopp and Co. face a week's wait to find out who their next opponents will be as they enter the quarter-finals of the competition, the draw for which takes place next Friday.
