"Unfortunately we couldn't break them [Porto] down but I can't fault the lads - the attitude was brilliant".

Owen Hargreaves singled out James Milner as Liverpool FC's best player during the Reds' Champions League goalless draw with FC Porto on Tuesday night.

Liverpool hold a commanding 5-0 lead from the first leg back in February when Sadio Mane's hat-trick and goals from Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino blew apart the Portuguese Primeira League leaders.

"So I am happy for all the people involved that we made that step".

"We want to work hard and achieve big things". Now we are in the next round, so I don't need any more positives.

The 5-0 rout from the away leg had all but put his team into the quater-finals and no one seriously expected much of a game at Anfield. "He can do it on his own at times, but it's important that we keep creating those opportunities, so that he keeps doing the work for us as part of that team as well".

However, Manchester United regained second spot with a last gasp win at Crystal Palace last night so Liverpool will be forgiven for having one eye on Saturday's huge trip to Old Trafford.

Jurgen Klopp's side warmed up for the game with a routine 2-0 victory over Newcastle at the weekend which saw them briefly move up to second position in the Premier League table.

However, he did not make his Champions League debut until nearly two years later in a group game at Olympiakos.

"He's a top player and that's a credit to the players around him but also to the club for helping him settle in as fast as possible".

The left-back played the full 90 minutes of the second-leg clash as the Merseysiders cruised into the quarter-finals of Europe's elite competition.

"It was time we showed up again".

"It feels really good", said Klopp. "You can not win any race in the world without being aggressive".

"Take it step-by-step. It is cool absolutely".

"The result at Anfield should be a big motivation for us on the domestic front", Casillas said.
