Firmino Wants PL Team In UCL

Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino is hoping to face a Premier League team in the last-eight, even though Emre Can hopes to avoid one.

The Reds made it to the second round of knockout, after a 5-0 aggregate win over Porto.

Liverpool, Madrid, Juventus and City have made it to the last eight, and Firmino hopes to face an England team, with Chelsea and United still involved.

“Yes, we’d like a draw against an English club,” he said. “Why not? We have shown in the past few seasons we can beat all the English clubs.

“Our record is good against them. We feel we have played well against the top English clubs and shown we can beat them.”

“We are not concerned who we get. We don’t mind. We are not afraid. I don’t think we have anything to fear from any side now.

“If you are in the draw (at this stage) then you can not be afraid of anyone. We feel we can beat any side on our day, and we don’t mind who we get. I think we are a team who will cause problems to others.

“Of course they are good teams. They are all good teams (left in the draw). But I don’t think it matters to us (who we get).

“We are a good team, we can play against the big Spanish teams and we feel we can be a match for them. You have to play against the big teams.”
