Roberto Firmino says Liverpool fear no one in the Champions League and would not mind facing English opposition in the last eight.
The Reds became the first Premier League team to reach the quarter-finals on Tuesday night when a low-key 0-0 draw with Porto at Anfield completed a 5-0 aggregate win, set up by a fine attacking display in the first leg.
Liverpool will learn their next opponents a week on Friday and, with the draw free of geographical restrictions, they could face Premier League leaders Manchester City - with Manchester United and Chelsea also possible opponents if they can make it through their ties next week.
Liverpool's Brazilian forward Firmino: "Yes, we'd like a draw against an English club. 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 but we are not afraid of anyone in the draw.
"We are not concerned who we get, we don't mind. A top Spanish club? We are not afraid. I don't think we have anything to fear from any side now.
"If you are in the draw, then you cannot 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.
"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."
