Gerrard: Everyone fear us

The Champions League quarter-final draw will take place in Nyon and Gerrard is confident.

He roared: “If you ask me about a fear factor in the Champions League, I think the other seven are the ones who are going to have concerns about coming up against us, don’t you? The way I look at it is that we’re going to have to play them sooner of later so it doesn’t matter if it’s now, the semi-finals or the final.

“We’re not running scared of anyone. We’ll take whoever we get and believe that we are going to go through.

“If we could hand-pick an opponent then maybe we’d want someone like Villarreal or Porto but, at this stage of the competition, there are no easy games. It may be a cliche but it’s true.

“Everyone who’s got to this stage has done well and believes in themselves. But we’ve shown — the players, manager and fans — we’re a force to be reckoned with when we pull it all together.”
