Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool are back where we belong

Pep Guardiola praised goal-hungry Manchester City as "incredible" after they trounced Schalke 7-0 and said he was "sorry for the English people" but he wants Bayern Munich to beat Liverpool in the Champions League.

In-form Sadio Mane's double was added to by a towering Virgil van Dijk header - Mane's first was an undoubted Goal of the Season contender - with Joel Matip's first-half own goal ultimately proving meaningless.

Van Dijk got the ball rolling for Liverpool in the 26th minute at the Allianz Arena after his long ball was superbly plucked out of the air by Sadio Mane.

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.

"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".

"It is a hard place to come and not a lot of teams have on their cards an away win at Munich".

Stocks rise on tame inflation outlook, dollar eases
The dollar fell and 10-year Treasury yields turned negative after core inflation cooled. "After yesterday's CPI data, yields fell. Oil prices extended overnight gains with US crude up 15 cents per barrel at $58.41 and Brent adding 22 cents to $67.77.

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.

Bayern coach Niko Kovac, whose side went top of the Bundesliga at the weekend after scoring 13 goals in their last two matches, could only praise their opponents. "Our goal is to win both of these competitions".

" 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".

"I was alone sometimes and I didn't have help, I couldn't do something and it was very hard", he said.

Although some pointed out that each of the teams are managed by different nationalities - with Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino at Spurs, Norway's Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at United, Germany's Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool, and Spain's Pep Guardiola at City - and not to mention a mass of foreign players in the ranks. "Still this was not a great game of football".
