Jurgen Klopp: 'Liverpool will not spend big on new players'

The 51-year-old German was the top flight's biggest spender last summer when recruiting Alisson, Fabinho, Naby Keïta and Xherdan Shaqiri for about £170 million.

Liverpool's heavy investment has paid off as they are second in the Premier League, a point off leaders Manchester City, and into the last eight of the Champions League.

"I don't want to talk exactly what we will do but I don't think this is a team at the moment where we have to spend the big money or whatever", Klopp said. There are six teams in the Premier League and we can not say they are bad because all of them are in quarter-finals [Arsenal and Chelsea are in the last eight of the Europa League].

Manchester City have been handed the challenge of overcoming English opposition in the quarterfinals for the second successive season, and they will be determined to ensure that Spurs do not inflict the same damage that Liverpool did a year ago.

On the space for further development, he continued: "It's massive".

Sergio Conceicao's team overcame Roma in the last round, and they have the experience of goalkeeper Iker Casillas, Pepe and Hector Herrera in their squad, but it is hard to suggest that Liverpool are anything other than overwhelming favourites to book a semifinal meeting against either Manchester United or Barcelona.

'Everyone wants Neymar, Mbappe' - Tuchel replies to Perez
Perez said: " Zidane is French, so with Mbappe he could do something, no?" Get the latest sports news updates. The Belgian forward is back on Real's agenda following the return of Zinedine Zidane in the Bernabeu dugout.

Former Manchester City boss Stuart Pearce added: "I think Liverpool have gone as favourites now for the competition, being that side of the draw".

"My standards are not thinking "we are Manchester City, we have to win everything".

"We won a lot in the past and that's why people believe that is normal but that is not normal". United will be played on Wednesday April 10, with the second leg games on Tuesday April 16.

"It is a good sign of character, but it is normal that we have to get used to our potential. At the end, that is the most important thing".

"For the future we have to be lucky that they all stay healthy and we can work with them and use the little time we have in training to bring the group together so that we don't have to develop only in games which is modern football".

'We must put this season's Champions League campaign behind us and attack next year, ' Kovac told the club's official website.
