Virgil van Dijk delivered another valuable goal to put the Reds 2-1 up on the night, and then Mane made sure they would join English counterparts Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Manchester City in Friday's quarter final draw.

"It's massive, a big step for us", said Klopp.

"It is good for English football", Milner told BT Sport. We found that and that makes me feel really proud and happy.

Despite all the focus on Manchester City chasing a quadruple, Liverpool are still pursuing a Premier League-Champions League double - something not achieved since Manchester United managed it in 2008 - and with Van Dijk in such peerless form, you can not write them off. "We are back. There is no doubt we are back again".

Liverpool are now going toe to toe with Manchester City for the Premier League title, while Klopp is under contract at Anfield until 2022. The only shadow is Hendo twisting his ankle, but it is Hendo so hopefully not too serious.

Despite starting on the bench for the Champions League clash against Bayern Munich, the Brazilian player soon had the responsibility of replacing club captain Jordan Henderson, and did a good job even with all the pressure on the game.

"We knew that it would be a very tough game, but I think in both games we were playing too defensive", the Poland global told Viasport.

Klopp insisted he took no extra satisfaction from Liverpool's victory in eliminating his former Bundesliga rivals from the Champions League. He has brought the same defensive organisation, but with more time and space to use his ball-playing abilities, he has also enabled Liverpool to be more dynamic playing out from the back. Fabinho came on and did well then we scored. Not since Bayern's Wembley win against Dortmund in 2013 has a Champions League been won without one of them in the victorious team and there has been no sign of either of them slowing up in this season's competition. He also scored a headed goal, Liverpool's crucial second, prompting Klopp to highlight his enormous value to this team.
