Nicol slams Liverpool performance: Atrocious, as bad as I've seen!

FC Barcelona haven't only qualified for the quarter finals of the Champions League but, in the contest against Lyon, broke another record in Europe's top tier competition.

And in explaining the game plan the visitors adopted for the second leg, Van Dijk cited the Reds' courage at either end of the pitch as the ultimate difference.

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.

The Senegal winger's touch left the on-rushing Manuel Neuer stranded and he swirled before lifting a deft chip into the far corner to cap a stunning move.

Glen Johnson has hailed Virgil van Dijk for his influence in the Liverpool defence, insisting that there are "no weaknesses" in his game. "I could write a book about his skills, his strength, how much I like him".

"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".

I think we played very well, we knew how to have a good time in the game, when we had to slow a bit more, keep the ball a little more, we knew how to do it.

"A lot of teams struggle here to get a result, but we still did it".

On the instructions from the manager, the centre-back said: "Obviously be courageous when we have the ball, make sure everyone wants the ball and when we defend, defend all together". We have that now and that's cool.

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.

After a 0-0 draw at Anfield, Jurgen Klopp's side stormed into the last-eight by downing Bayern 3-1 at the Allianz Arena, Sadio Mane scoring twice as the German giants were knocked out having not been ahead at any point in the tie.

"Whoever we get as an opponent we will take", he added.
