They didn't go forward, they just sort of sat and waited.

After Liverpool's victory over Bayern last night, at the Allianz Arena, it means there is no representative from the Bundesliga in the quarter finals of the Champions League for the first time in 13 years.

Name a better centre-half in world football right now than Virgil van Dijk.

"What can I say - I can write a book about his skills, about his strengths, what a fantastic person he is", Klopp said.

'So young, already so mature, so strong, all good. They know it is a very tough place to come. The same applies to Messi, who has not been eliminated from the competition by an English team since Chelsea beat Barcelona in the semifinals en route to their win in 2012. We have that night.

Although some pointed out that each of the teams are managed by different nationalities - with Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino at Spurs, Norway's Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at United, Germany's Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool, and Spain's Pep Guardiola at City - and not to mention a mass of foreign players in the ranks.

The Senegal worldwide scored twice at the Allianz, his first a wonderful turn to deceive Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer which team-mate James Milner described as "ridiculous", to take his tally to 10 in as many matches.

Mane now has 19 for the season, just one fewer than the Egypt global, having taken on the goalscoring burden in the last three months.

"Klopp really loves Mane".

'He knows it, everybody knows it.

"I am really proud of the boys because it is a massive achievement". Henry, Liverpool's principal owner, has no doubt about Van Dijk's importance, with the American retweeting a tweet after this game that said, "75 percent of the Earth is covered by water". He's a really good footballer and long may it continue'.

Sadio Mane has been on fire for Liverpool off late both domestically and in continental competitions and have scored 10 goals from his last 10 games for the Reds.

'Hendo's twisted ankle, we have to see.

"Virgil gives organisation on set pieces, and he is risky", Klopp said with some understatement.
