Liverpool defender Andy Robertson says he is not concerned who the Reds draw in the Champions League semi-finals, and insists there are no "easy" opponents remaining the in the competition.
Jurgen Klopp's side booked their place in the final four with a 2-1 win over Manchester City at the Etihad on Tuesday, securing a 5-1 aggregate victory against the runaway league leaders.
Liverpool could now face Roma, who sensationally defeated Barcelona on away goals at the Stadio Olimpico, in the semi-finals or potentially play Bayern Munich, Sevilla, Juventus or Real Madrid - who play their second-leg ties on Wednesday.
"It is the semi-final, it doesn't matter who we get," said Robertson. "Roma got an unbelievable result tonight, they've put out Barcelona - we all know what a great side they are.
"We will look forward to the draw. There is going to be no easy way into the final but we'll be up to the challenge and hopefully we'll do enough."
Robertson insists Liverpool fully deserved to progress to the semi-finals on the balance of play over the tie.
"We knew how hard it was going to be over the two legs," said Robertson. "They've been the best team in our league hands down this season.
"They will go on to be rightfully champions and well done to them for that, but over the two legs I think we've been the better team.
"Especially in the first leg when we dominated the first half, really that won us the tie. We've grabbed a couple of away goals and we're delighted to be in the semi-finals.
"We knew how hard it was going to be but luckily we've stood up to that challenge."
Mohamed Salah has now scored 39 goals in all competitions this season after netting the first of Liverpool's two goals at the Etihad and Dejan Lovren believes the Egyptian has developed into one of the world's best players during his time at Anfield.
"It is just brilliant," said Lovren. "It's a pleasure to have a player like him in our team. We're helping him to be one of the best players in the world.
"He is such a cool guy, you cannot believe how enjoyable it is to share the dressing room with him and he deserves it, simple as that."
