Luis Garcia believes that Liverpool FC should have “no fear” when they take on Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals next month.

The Reds are preparing to play their Premier League rivals in the last eight of Europe’s elite club competition as they look to try and secure their spot in the semi-finals.

Liverpool FC booked their place in the quarter-finals by beating FC Porto 5-0 on aggregate in the last 16.

The Reds will now take on Manchester City in the first leg of their quarter-final tie at Anfield on 4 April before the return leg at Manchester City after that.

And despite Manchester City having been in such dominant form in the Premier League this season, former Liverpool FC star Garcia feels that the Reds have no reason to fear the Citizens.

Garcia told the Liverpool Echo: “No, I don’t think there’s any reason for fear. People won’t be thinking about that.

“The most important thing is to go into the game while being aware that both teams will have chances to go through.

“It’s great to see the team back on this stage, the history of the club shows how important Liverpool are in the Champions League.

“People know everything the team has done in the past.”

Meanwhile, Liverpool FC will return to Premier League action on Saturday when they travel to Crystal Palace in the top flight.

Liverpool FC are currently in third place in the table as they look to try and secure their spot in the Champions League for next season.

The Reds ended up in fourth place in the Premier League table last term in Jurgen Klopp’s first full season un charge.
