Serge Gnabry had forced an own goal from Joel Matip to equalise in the 39th minute, but Liverpool went ahead again through a corner when Virgil Van Dijk met James Milner's cross with a thumping header with 20 minutes to go.

"It's a big, big step for us". I don't know about the statistics, but my impression is that there were not too many hard situations in and around our box.

'I really think this club deserves to have awareness again.

The Reds defeated the German giants at the Allianz Arena with a balanced performance of defensive resilience and clinical attacking play to reach the Champions League quarter-finals. We have a lot to improve, a lot to learn, but we are back and I like that very much'.

Liverpool's only concern is a twisted ankle suffered by captain Jordan Henderson, although the initial diagnosis was more positive. Andy Robertson also picked up a booking in stoppage time that means he will miss the first leg of the quarter-finals but they were the only blemishes on an otherwise impeccable night for Klopp's team. We wanted fresh legs, not to rest Fabinho but to bring in fresh legs.

The result ended a run of five successive Champions League defeats - including the final last May - away from Anfield and maintained Klopp's record of never having lost any of the nine two-legged European ties he has overseen as Liverpool manager in Europe. You have to try and impress the other team and we did that.

"It was really good. It's just a good moment for Liverpool and let's enjoy that".
