Roberto Firmino has revealed who his preference in terms of who Liverpool will draw in Champions League quarter-final.
The Brazilian forward has enjoyed his most productive season for the Reds so far, scoring 13 league goals and assisting a further seven in 28 appearances for Jurgen Klopp.
Liverpool have also enjoyed a fine Champions League campaign all round and have been rewarded with a quarter-final appearance for the first-time since 2009, in which Firmino admitted he would like to play an English side.

“Yes, we’d like a draw against an English club,” he said, reports the Telegraph.
And the Brazilian believes his side’s record against their English counterparts stands them in good stead.
“Why not?” he continued.
“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.”
In contrast, Can said on Tuesday that he would prefer for Liverpool to avoid another English side in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Roberto Firmino the perfect false nine?
Liverpool are currently third in the table thanks to their forward trident of Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Madio Sane, who have combined to score 45 of their 67 league goals this season.
The Brazilian has been key to Jurgen Klopp’s fluid attacking frontline and is often deployed centrally.
In addition to netting 13 times, his tireless running has enabled him to create 49 chances – the most that any Liverpool player has managed to produce this season.
Liverpool will face Manchester United away at Old Trafford this Saturday in the race for second place.
