LFC were unranked last week in the table composed by the former goalkeeper and current ESPN FC pundit. The four teams ahead of the Reds in the rankings, in order, are Bayern Munich,Barcelona, Manchester City and Juventus.

“Good development in Liverpool at the moment, it’s a nice moment, but you don’t show up in a competition like the Champions League and nobody really will realize it,” Reds boss Jurgen Klopp said after the Reds officially qualified for the Champions League quarterfinals.
“I’m happy for all the people involved that we made that step. It’s done, it’s good and now let’s go and carry on.”
