Liverpool have kept the double dream alive after seeing off Nottingham Forest in FA Cup

Liverpool have kept the double dream alive after seeing off Nottingham Forest to make the FA Cup semi-finals at the weekend.

But the wily German has admitted that his side cannot afford to fixate on Manchester City with the Champions League quarter-finals also in the pipeline.

‘We have Watford, Benfica, City, Benfica, City, United, Everton (after the international break),’ said Klopp, looking ahead to a series of tight scheduling for Liverpool.

‘From a Liverpool perspective these are all massive games and we try to play them one at a time and not all together.

‘We knew before the game City would be the opponent if we wanted to go to the final anyway. Now here we go.

‘The further you go in whichever competition the more likely you are you will face City at one point.

‘I don’t think we are the dream draw for anyone, but it will be a tough tie and we have to make sure it will be tough for City as well.

‘But there are a lot of games to play before that.’
