All the four Premier League teams competing in this season’s Champions League have made it to the hat for the final eight, with Manchester City and Liverpool considered two of the favourites to win the competition; Manchester City crushed Schalke in their last 16 tie, while Tottenham Hotspur saw off Borussia Dortmund. Comparing England to the Bundesliga, Klopp insisted that not every team in the Premier League is better than their German counterparts.  

Six Or Seven Top, Top Teams – Jurgen Klopp Compares Premier League and Bundesliga

But he insisted that what makes the Premier League a special competition is at least six to seven teams in it could thrive and compete in any top league in the world. Klopp was quoted as saying by German broadcaster Sport1: “Not all teams in the Premier League are better than in the Bundesliga.

“But there are six to seven teams who can play in every league in the world. “So that makes it a bit special.” The last time four Premier League teams reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League was 2009. Three of those teams made it to the semi-final, with Manchester United making the final, only to lose to eventual winners Barcelona.  

Jurgen Klopps side will be aiming to avoid a third straight goalless away draw for the first time in the top flight, having failed to score at Manchester United and Everton in their last two outings.
