In fact, having allowed 17 goals thus far, they are now on pace to concede just 21 goals by the end of the campaign, which would make them the best Premier League defense since Chelsea in 2004/05!

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been ruled out of the trip to west London due to a minor ankle injury that he picked up against Bayern so Fabinho is expected to be recalled to the side.

Mourinho, who won the competition with Porto in 2004 and Inter Milan in 2010, says he'd like to see an all-English affair for two of the quarterfinal ties. "But, like I said, the main thing was for us to come here, put pressure on them and try to hit them on the counter - and that's what we did, we punished them". "You still think about it now", he said.

Although we weren't entirely sure of it at the time, it is now for certain that Liverpool managed to get their hands on a world-class centre-back in January 2018 for just £75 million.

FC Barcelona in the quest for winning a treble this season, registered a thumping 5-1 win over Olympique Lyon in the 2nd Leg of the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League to book them a spot in the Quarter Finals.

"And when he gets the hard chances, he puts them away".

"You are proud to have played in the European Cup final but you don't go there to lose".

"We don't think about the situation in the table or whatever, we are only focused on our situation but we know how hard it is". At the time, the club was criticized for how they had handled the transfer and for paying too much for a defender (£75 million) but now, a full year on, those arguments seem distant memories. We have to put that right.

"To obviously get the clean sheet at Anfield was big for us and we knew that coming here and getting a few goals would make it very hard for them to go through, so the main aim for us was to come here and put a few [chances] away".

With Manchester City not in Premier League action this weekend, Liverpool will be aiming to move clear at the summit of the division, albeit having played a game more than their title rivals.

We didn't defend the way we do usually in the away games of the Champions League but today we did. "If you are alone against two three players, good players, it is very hard to play".

Liverpool's German manager Klopp could not stop smiling as the final whistle sounded, as he lavished praise on his players after what may have been their finest performance of the season. "You can only take positives".

English teams will make up half of all the clubs involved in Friday's Champions League quarter-final draw.
