Klopp targets more after Liverpool end long wait for last eight

Friday, 09 Mar, 2018

Jose Mourinho's side remain in the hunt for the Champions League and FA Cup this season and are now the best of the rest in the league, but remain 16 points adrift of rampant leaders Manchester City.

The 22-year-old is leading the goalscoring charts for Leipzig this season, having netted 16 goals in 33 games across all competitions, and has often spoken of his desire to move to a top European club in the future.

On Monday at Crystal Palace, Mourinho's side was disjointed and shapeless as they fell 2-0 down to the relegation-threatened Londoners, only to rally and get the three points thanks to a last-minute strike from midfielder Nemanja Matic.

We're halfway through the Champions League second round and thoughts are already turning to the quarter finals and who will play who.

Gini Wijnaldum could also be pushing for a recall after recovering from an illness that's kept him out of the last two games but a place on the bench might be the best he can hope for this weekend. So, we must do more than simply mirror the passion and desire they will show.

"Of course, I have to think about my footballing future", he said.

Lauding Liverpool's front three of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, former England player Hargreaves said on BT Sport: "I don't think anyone will want to face Liverpool with the attack they have". I prefer to not play an English team, but I don't care who. "But I don't think it matters to us (who we get)".

The Champions League quarter-final draw on March 16 is open, meaning no teams are seeded and clubs from the same national association can be drawn against each other.

Porto boss Sergio Conceicao believes the Reds can exceed that target, saying: "Liverpool are definitely one of the teams that can win this year".

"We have to improve together - we have the Champions League and the FA Cup still to play for".

And even though Naby Keita is joining Liverpool in the summer, the report said that Klopp wants to add more dynamism to the midfield and that's what Seri can bring to the table.
