Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp rejects talk of European exit boosting title tilt

Liverpool's Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk celebrates scoring the 1-2 goal with his team-mate Brazilian midfielder Roberto Firmino during the UEFA Champions League last 16 second leg football match Bayern Munich v Liverpool in Munich southern G

"Liverpool is a really good fit for me", Klopp said.

The Senegal worldwide scored his 18th and 19th goals of the season in the 3-1 win over Bayern Munich which put the Reds into the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Liverpool's run to the final past year signalled a re-awakening and this season, with holders Real Madrid, Bayern and PSG all out, the odds are shortening on the first all-English final since United beat Chelsea on penalties in Moscow in 2008.

Oxlade-Chamberlain could also be available for the Spurs fixture at Anfield on March 31, the former Arsenal player nearing a first-team comeback after almost a year out with a serious knee injury.

Klopp confirmed Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson twisted his ankle in an incident that forced him out of the game after just 14 minutes, with his condition to be assessed when he returns to the club's Melwood training ground on Thursday.

Next up is their trip to Fulham on Sunday afternoon, needing a victory to take them back above City heading into the global break, and with only seven matches to go in the title race. "What other people say about me I couldn't be less interested". Not good, but okay.

"Naby we have to see if he can train today", Klopp said on Friday.

"The approach was the same as against Gladbach and Wolfsburg, when we scored 11 goals (in 5-1 and 6-0 victories)".

"Oxlade, I heard nothing new".

"For sure after the global break he will be 100 per cent fit", Klopp said. Mo did not score (against Bayern) but had a good game.

And this is exactly what they did as a brace from Sadio Mane and one goal from Virgil Van Dijk ensured that Liverpool breezed into the quarter-finals.

Many an attacker has tried and failed to get the best of Van Dijk who continues to make his mammoth £75 million price tag look like the bargain of the century.

"We haven't struggled psychologically with them ahead of us or us ahead of them it's just being really focused on the football game".

"But when the players played, they all did well".

However, a caveat to the manager's claims must be added, as telling reporters of his plans to sign a high-profile player in the summer would both undermine the club's business and the progress of the squad this season.

"That's normal that we want to prove things but it's not that we wake up in the morning and think we lost against City in the League Cup final, Europa League final against Sevilla and against Real Madrid in Kiev (2018 Champions League final)", he said.
