Liverpool labelled ‘weaker’ than Man City and Chelsea as three English teams reach Champions League quarter-finals

The remaining teams in the Champions League would rather face Liverpool than Chelsea or Man City, talkSPORT has been told.

Three English clubs made it through to the last eight of the competition alongside Porto, Real Madrid, PSG, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

All three are looking strong heading into the Champions League quarter-finals as none conceded a goal in their round of 16 ties.

Liverpool’s form in Europe has been in complete contrast to their Premier League form.

When discussing the strength of the teams remaining, talkSPORT host Andy Goldstein said: “Here’s my thinking right. I saw your mob (Chelsea) play tonight and Man City last night. I’ve seen Liverpool play.

“Out of the three English clubs left, both English clubs, Chelsea and Man City, out of all the other sides left in it and they had to pick one English club to play for a place in the last four, they’d all pick Liverpool.

“I think Liverpool are the weakest side out of the three left. Will that be fair?

“Your mob don’t concede and Man City are Man City”

Co-host Jason Cundy said: “It’s remarkable. We (Chelsea) just don’t concede goals anymore.

When asked if that was fair that Liverpool were the worst of the three, Cundy added: “Maybe. Over two legs you need moments where you will keep things tight. I have to say, Liverpool breezed past Leipzig.

“They did lose to this lot (Atletico) last season, but that doesn’t even look like Atletico.

“Weakest is pushing it, but if I was a foreign side maybe you could make an argument that Liverpool are a bit more vulnerable at the back than Chelsea or Man City right now.”

Goldstein was not the only one to think that Liverpool could be the weak line with Jamie O’Hara claiming sides will actually want to draw the Reds.

“How can you say you might want Real Madrid when they’ve won it four times (recently),” O’Hara told talkSPORT Breakfast.

“It’s a tough one to say because they’ve won it so many times as well, but you’d have to say Liverpool were the team you’d want.”
