Liverpool made it a flawless four for English clubs in the UEFA Champions League this season as they beat Bayern Munich to join Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham in the quarterfinals.

Liverpool then scored with headers from Van Dijk in the 69th minute and Mane in the 84th to book their spot in the last eight.

Liverpool saw off Bayern 3-1 in their last 16 second leg thanks to a double from the in-form Sadio Mane and a goal from defender Virgil van Dijk.

In a dominant performance, Liverpool shrugged off an early ankle injury to captain Jordan Henderson and kept their cool after Bayern's equaliser through Joel Matip's own goal late in the first half.

The Senegalese's 18th and 19th goals of the season helped Liverpool join Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in the quarter-finals, the first time since 2009 that four English teams have reached this stage of the competition. We have set a mark that this wonderful club is really at the top of the landscape of European football. I'm really happy about the result.

"Liverpool's self-awareness now must be: 'We are back".

"We all thing that's where this club belongs and tonight we proved it at least a little bit".

The odds looked to be stacked against Liverpool with Bayern going into the contest in such good form, but after a nervy beginning to the game for both sides, it was the Merseyside outfit who took the lead.

After a goalless first leg, Liverpool made the trip to Germany to face the reigning Bundesliga title-holders and five-time European champions, genuine heavyweights in this competition.

Jurgen Klopp praised Virgil van Dijk's impact on Liverpool's season and feels the best is yet to come as the club's fight on two fronts continues.

And fans will hope the omens will show they can go all the way to the final again.
