Stevie – “We’ll have anyone!”

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard insists his team can beat anyone and holds no fear as to who they may face in the Champions League quarter-finals when the draw is made this Friday.

After beating Real Madrid 5-0 on aggregate in the second round, the Reds are in the final eight of the competition along with Manchester Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal, Villarreal, Porto, Bayern Munich and Barcelona.

And a confident Gerrard believes they have what it take to beat any of the seven they could draw against.

He said, “We are not running scared of anybody. We will take who we get, and believe that we are going to go through.

“If you are asking me about a fear factor in the Champions League, then I think it is the other seven teams in the draw who are going to have concerns about coming up against us after that Real Madrid result.

“The way I look at it, we are going to have to play them sooner or later, so it does not matter if it is now, the semi-finals or the final.”

The draw takes place in Nyon, Switzerland on Friday (March 20th) morning.
