John Aldridge says that Liverpool will be feared by the remaining teams in the Champions League.

Former Liverpool striker John Aldridge has claimed that no team will want to take on the Reds in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Alongside Manchester City, Jurgen Klopp's side are one of two English teams so far that have made it into the final eight, with Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United falling at the last-16 hurdle, while Chelsea will discover their fate this evening.

The Merseyside outfit have been blistering their way through the tournament, scoring 28 goals in total, including seven against Maribor and Spartak Moscow, as well as five against Porto in the previous round.

"On our day, we can be devastating," The Mirror quotes Aldridge as saying. "Look at Maribor, people said they were a poor team, but we're the only team that beat them away and we beat them 7-0. Moscow, they said it was easy when we beat them 7-0, but no-one else beat them by that scoreline. Porto, what a performance that was!

"It wasn't because those teams are poor, it was because we hit the heights going forward and if we hit the heights then teams like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City, the teams that open up, then on our day, if we defend well, we can beat them. No team will want to play us, that's a fact."

The quarter-final draw will be made on Friday.
