We feel we can beat any side on our day.

Even before Jurgen Klopp's side find out if they can face United in the next round of the Champions League the pair face on Saturday in the north west derby in the Premier League.

"That front three, when they're on fire, the way they play, the intensity, going to Anfield, the pace they've got in that team - they're going to be a hard proposition for any team".

He said on BT Sport: "People talk the front three and how risky they are and how good they are going forward but, for me, defensively they've tightened up". They won the match by destroying the Portuguese team completely.

Liverpool remain the only side to inflict a league defeat on champions-elect Manchester City this season, while Chelsea were beaten at Stamford Bridge last season. Now, in the ongoing season, they have participated in the UCL and in the second leg of round of last sixteen in Champions League, the Reds made draw against Porto.

United are now two points ahead of Klopp's men in second place, ahead of what is usually one of the feistiest Premier League fixtures of the season.
