Klopp sang the praises of Virgil van Dijk, who played an outstanding game: 'What can I say?

The Netherlands worldwide has been a consistent presence at the back for Jurgen Klopp's men since his world-record transfer from Southampton in January 2018.

Jurgen Klopp's men progressed through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League with a 3-1 win over Bayern Munich powered by a brace from Mane on Wednesday at the Allianz Arena.

Defender Virgil van Dijk was a towering presence at the heart of defence and even chipped in with a goal and an assist.

Bayern knew they had to be more adventurous than they had been at Anfield, but they were suffocated by Liverpool's intense pressing in the first half.

"When players see him as calm as he is in every situation, it rubs off and everyone puffs themselves out as well".

"There's going to be many times in the Champions League you'll come up against world-class strikers, and he's the player you need to put them to sleep".

" We will see what we can do with it but it's still fantastic for us that LFC as a club, we really are back for the last games of global top football".

Liverpool legend Steve Nicol believes that Sadio Mane has been in scintillating form since Christmas and admits that the attacker reminds him of former Red Raheem Sterling. We had [Daniel] Agger and [Martin] Skrtel.

Joy for England was despair for Germany, though, as Liverpool's win meant a hat-trick of defeats for Bundesliga teams against Premier League opposition at the last 16 stage.

Liverpool nullified their German opponents with a dominant performance, sending them through to the quarter-finals.

Van Dijk will be expected to retain his spot in the starting XI against the Cottagers and Johnson believes he has mastered the art of defending.

"This guy has taken it to another level".

"All of the teams have gone through to the next round, and for us of course it was really good because we managed to win an away game at Bayern Munich - which is quite hard".
