United discover next Champions League opponents

United discover next Champions League opponents

The team is now immersed in a bitter fight for the Premier League titke with Manchester City and have reached the Champions League quarter-finals, where they will meet Porto. The Reds have stuttered in recent away games domestically, but the fantastic performance in Germany during the week should have them brimming with confidence ahead of the visit to Craven Cottage.

"Liverpool is a team that is fighting at the right end, in terms of fighting for the championship", he added.

The draw means there will be three clashes between the sides in 10 days in April with a Premier League fixture following hot on the heels of their second leg.

"And that was maybe the main problem of Liverpool for the last decade".

The Blues last lifted the trophy back in 2011 when a solitary strike from Yaya Toure edged them past Stoke at Wembley and secured a first piece of silverware in the Sheikh Mansour era.

Eleven goals have been scored by Liverpool substitutes against Fulham.

While Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino boast a total of 44 league goals between them this campaign, compared to Fulham's team total of just 28, Parker wants his team to be the aggressors on Sunday.

The draw for the Champions League quarterfinals has thrown up some classic ties as Europe's biggest clubs attempt to reach this season's final in Madrid.

Beirne Makes Six Nations Debut - Carty Back On the Bench
This will also be the final Six Nations appearance for Rory Best and Ireland will be hoping to give him a flawless send-off. The Irish boss, as expected, recalled Rob Kearney and Sean O'Brien while handing Tadhg Beirne his Six Nations debut.

"For fans spending their money and coming to watch us I think you understand in this league you can lose and you can get relegated from this division if you're Fulham but there is a way to lose".

Arguably the tie of the round, with two of the world's biggest clubs meeting in the knockout stages for the first time since United triumphed in the 2007-08 semifinals on the way to winning their third Champions League crown.

"When you look at Liverpool, they're the deadliest front three in the Premier League", he said. Five years ago, the teams met in similar circumstances to now, with the Londoners in a relegation battle and the Merseysiders in the thick of a title race.

The spending strategy at Anfield has shifted towards heavy investment in new contracts for the nucleus of a squad that is pursuing Premier League and Champions League success this season rather than looking to bring in new signings.

It was a night when the Reds had to dig incredibly deep to claim the points.

"They said in Munich I would be judged for not getting to finals".

Which team will make it to the semi-finals out of United and Barcelona? As the match entered stoppage time, and with Liverpool set to drop two valuable points, they won a penalty which Steven Gerrard coolly converted to send the travelling Kopites home in delight.

Liverpool are four goals short of recording 400 under Klopp in all competitions - this is his 196th game in charge. When Manchester City came here, it was similar. Wow.
