Klopp delighted to put Liverpool back on the map

Liverpool players celebrate following Sadio Mane's third goal against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena

Joel Matip's own goal levelled matters before half-time but Liverpool kept their illustrious hosts at arm's length throughout the second period, when Virgil van Dijk restored their lead before Mane headed his second of the game.

"It's never easy, they're going to have spells on top".

"Scoring three goals here is massive and a big step for us, a big, big step", the former Borussia Dortmund manager said.

'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 worldwide top football.

Maybe we're being a bit harsh on Neuer here.

'There are some places in the world where whichever team would struggle. There were not too many hard situations in and around our box and that is a massive sign.

'You have to find different ways. We didn't play our best but it's about getting a result.

"We again set a mark for this wonderful club, that we really are back on the landscape of worldwide top football". We have a lot to improve, a lot to learn, but we are back and I like that very much'.

Liverpool's victory over Bayern means four of the eight teams in the Champions League quarter-finals come from the Premier League, the first time that has happened since 2009.

And fans will hope the omens will show they can go all the way again.

Who will progress to the next stage of the Champions League?

The two teams had it all to play for after their first meeting at Anfield ended in a goalless draw and Liverpool were forced into a quick change inside of 15 minutes when Fabinho replaced Jordan Henderson after the captain collided with James Rodriguez and picked up an injury.
