Mourinho aims dig at Man Utd with Liverpool praise


City have won six of their eight Champions League games this season, including a 6-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk and Tuesday's 7-0 thrashing of Schalke.

The Reds return to EPL action after clinching a berth in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final with a decisive 3-1 victory over Bayern Munich.

John Aldridge has insisted Liverpool's win over FC Porto in last season's Champions League will have little effect as this time around the Reds will play first at home in the quarter-final tie.

He is on his way to becoming the best defender in the world, but I agree with Rio Ferdinand when he said you need to win things to be seen as a great.

Liverpool fans still shudder when they think back to this infamous date: 27th April 2014.

"The game in hand of City is Manchester United, I think, so for sure not an easy one".

"I respect a lot the desire of all the people, and all the players, and I can be part of that dream, but it's not for me at the end, it's for the people".

Champions League: Liverpool ease past Bayern Munich 3-1 to reach last eight

"I have been to three finals since I have been here (the League Cup and Europa League in 2016), lost them all and I am desperate to put that right".

Wow, so Mourinho is feeling very positive about Liverpool's chances domestically as well as on the continent.

Bayern were knocked out in the round of 16 of the Champions League for the first time in almost a decade at the hands of Liverpool, and their fellow Bundesliga clubs - Borussia Dortmund and Schalke - also fell at the same hurdle. I never saw Bayern being that defensive-orientated. Joe Gomez played the first part of the season and was incredible, Dejan played unbelievably good football and Joel as well. "It's just a good moment for Liverpool and let's enjoy that".

"Lewandowski too lonely. No pressure in the midfield".

The 51-year-old German wants to focus on developing the players he already has at his disposal, after Alisson, Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri all arrived at Anfield in the summer. "So I think really a sad performance from Bayern".

England's best era of the Champions League came in the mid 2000s. Have your say in the comments section below.
