Twitter reacts to the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 draw

  • Squawka predicts: who will win the Champions League and which Premier League team will go furthest?

I just think they're short, defensively they're short. "I have played a lot in the last few games and I have to make the most of the opportunities.

But for sure, I hope, is better not to say for sure, I hope some will be available but for sure some will not be.' Mourinho admitted that he is 'far" from making United a team in his own image.

"The three points are very important to continue at the top of the table and also because it was a very important game for the fans, against Manchester United", Fabinho said.

"And I think his post today, whether it was his team or whatever, it was totally out of order. We've got a great team and we've got great players who can come off the bench and change the game for us".


While that was cause for pre-Christmas revelry on the Kop, more significantly, Liverpool's refusal to be subdued by a United team set up by Jose Mourinho with five defenders was another statement of intent as they chase a first English league title since 1990. After City's 3-1 win over Everton on Saturday, Juergen Klopp's side rose to the challenge with two second-half goals from substitute Xherdan Shaqiri. "Maybe it's to do with the modern player - but I'd love to see Mourinho have a good break, come back and try to evolve a bit to bring back the old Mourinho that everyone loved".

"They can counter quickly and they're risky in front of goal, but they're also vulnerable, as we've seen, and they'll be up against a good Bayern attack".

The Switzerland global could prove Wolves real problems if he gets in-between the pocket of the back three and midfield, something which is a big feature of his game.

Meanwhile, Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has said he believes Ovie Ejaria has made the wrong decision in ending his loan spell in Glasgow early and returning to Liverpool. "I'm very confident we'll get through". Asked if he needed the same kind of investment to keep pace with Liverpool, he added: 'It's not just about the money they spend in the summer, it's about many things. Both of the Swiss international's efforts, in the 73rd and 80th minutes, were deflected but the good fortune had been earned by a enterprising Liverpool display that highlighted the 19-point gap between the two clubs - the biggest at this stage of a season in 46 years.
