  • Liverpool players celebrate following Sadio Mane's third goal against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena

After a goalless first leg, Liverpool made the trip to Germany to face the reigning Bundesliga title-holders and five-time European champions, genuine heavyweights in this competition.

"We still have space for improvement but beating Bayern here is a big one".

Serge Gnabry had forced an own goal from Joel Matip to equalise in the 39th minute, but Liverpool went ahead again through a corner when Virgil Van Dijk met James Milner's cross with a thumping header with 20 minutes to go. We have set a mark that this wonderful club is really at the top of the landscape of European football.

"We all feel that's where this club belongs and we proved it at least a little bit".

Whether he was joking or not, it's fair to suggest that Juventus knew exactly what they getting when they signed Ronaldo from Real Madrid last summer. The opponent attacked us very high and left no spaces, that made it hard for us. I don't know about the statistics, but my impression is that there were not too many hard situations in and around our box.

"You have to find different ways".

"And let me tell you when the ball is coming over your shoulder like that, for you to just see it and to pick up that flight of the ball, but not only that, to take a touch is just ideal".

"Liverpool's self-awareness now must be: 'We are back". I don't want to speak about it really. "Liverpool are a top team in Europe and they showed us our limits".

United's unexpected victory over PSG also ensures that they will be regarded as a risky outsider in Friday's draw, but while it's inevitable that the focus will be on the prospect of a first English Champions League victor this season since Chelsea in 2012, it would be wise to consider the threat posed by Messi and Ronaldo, with Barca and Juve respectively, to Premier League ambitions.

His statistics are even better when restricted to the Premier League with 17 shut-outs in 30 matches, which has allowed Klopp's side to take on Manchester City head-to-head as they trail the defending champions by just a point.
