Five things we learned from the Champions League

"It is not our best game, but we deserved it at the end".

And with City's line-up packed with attacking players - although top scorer Sergio Aguero was on the bench - it came as no surprise that they flew out of the blocks.

It means the Merseyside club have progressed to the last-four of the Champions League for the first time in a decade, where they could face Roma - after their stunning win over Barcelona - and likely Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

"From a personal point of view I don't want Real Madrid in the semi-finals".

Jurgen Klopp admits the clock is ticking on his target of winning a trophy within the first four years of his Liverpool tenure but after eliminating Manchester City he says he dare not dream that it will be the Champions League.

A much more composed Liverpool worked the ball through to Sadio Mane, whose run into the box was stopped by Ederson only for the City keeper to lose the ball, giving Salah a simple chipped finish in front of the travelling fans.
