REVEALED: Who Liverpool want to avoid in Champions League quarter-final

Liverpool reached the last eight of the Champions League after beating Bayern Munich 3-1 at the Allianz Arena.

Due e to goals from Sadio Mane and Virgil Van Dijk, Liverpool handed a hope of winning the Premier League and Champions League this season.

Milner, who was part of the Reds side that reached the final last year – and edged out City – knows who he doesn’t want this time around.

“It is good for English football,” Milner told BT Sport. “That’s what you want. I don’t think we want to play each other in the next round but we’ll see who we get.

“We have good feelings from last year so hopefully we can carry that on and go as far as we can.”

“It says a lot about the squad we have got,” the former Leeds man said. “To lose the captain that early was difficult but we dealt with it well. Fabinho came on and did well then we scored.

“It was a good result. We didn’t play our best but it is about defending well and getting three points.

“This guy [Van Dijk] got another goal. To be honest, he should get more given his height!”
