Liverpool have one foot in the Champions League semi-final after Wednesday’s Man City win and one Anfield legend has suggested they could go all the way.

Jurgen Klopp’s side stunned everyone when his side came out 3-0 winners in the first leg of their clash with City.

Goals from Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane have given them a huge chance of reaching the next stage.

Now, people are starting to talk about Klopp’s side potentially going all the way in Europe’s top competition since 2005.

They are likely to face one of the biggest tests in the next round, with all of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich seemingly progressing.

Though, Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson has claimed that the path is open for the Reds this year.

“Klopp’s tactics remain the same whether he has faced Guardiola with Borussia Dortmund or Liverpool and it’s often been the same result for Pep at Barcelona, Bayern Munich and now City,” he explained in his Mirror column. 

“And you can bet that every other team left in the competition – Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern, whoever – would have looked at the way Liverpool play and immediately seen they will be a formidable opponent.

“Barca are not the force they once were, they rely so heavily on Lionel Messi, Real Madrid are not unbeatable and maybe even Bayern are not as good as two or three years ago.

“It leaves the path open for Liverpool.
