Roberto Firmino says he doesn't mind who Liverpool get in the last eight of the Champions League, however Can is hoping that Liverpool avoid one of their domestic rivals in the draw.

Klopp will be confident after getting to rest his goal-scoring talisman Mohamed Salah in the Champions League draw with Porto in midweek. "Why not?" said the Brazil global.

"We have shown in the past few seasons we can beat all the English clubs". Our record is good against them.

"I don't care who you are in this tournament now that front three, when they are on fire, the way they play, the intensity, going to Anfield - a difficult place to go - the pace they have got in that team, they are going to be a hard proposition for any team in this tournament". We are not afraid of anyone in the draw. We are not afraid.

"Of course I have to think about my footballing future", Can told the Liverpool Echo.

SUN SIX is the new predictor game where you can win £1million - just by correctly picking the results of six games. "We feel we can beat any side on our day, and we don't mind who we get", reckoned the Brazilian who has been instrumental for Liverpool this season. I prefer to not play an English team, but I don't care who. However, when you've got players like Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba going chasing after the ball and showing a lack of positional discipline, it is hard for him to make the team play in such a structured way.

Firmino, 26, is set to feature for Brazil at the World Cup in Russian Federation but said first he is focusing on winning his first trophy with Liverpool.

However, he is focusing on his club football first and would dearly love to win his first trophy with the Reds.

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Liverpool FC are ready to spend big on bolstering their squad in the summer transfer window.

If he is breached then United need to change the way they play and really open up, which they don't want to do with Liverpool's counter-attack being so brilliant.

Basically Liverpool won the first leg against the same team Porto which was the away match of the Reds.

"We are all concentrating on that, and that is the aim at this stage". We want to finish in second place in the Premier League, we're in the Champions League quarter-finals and we want to progress.
