London, Mar 19: Steven Gerrard, the Liverpool team captain insists that his club fears nobody left in the competition ahead of Champions League draw for the quarterfinals.
Gerrard reckons Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal are quaking in their boots at the prospect of being paired with Liverpool. The Reds lived up to their ranking as the number 1 team in Europe after sweeping Real Madrid aside 5-0 on aggregate in the round of 16.
"We are not running scared of anybody. We will take who we get and believe that we are going to go through," he said.
"If you are asking me about a fear factor in the Champions League, then I think it is the other seven teams in the draw who are going to have concerns about coming up against us after that Real Madrid result," he said.
Gerrard marked his 100th Euro appearance with a double against Real, leaving him level with Bayern's Miroslav Klose as joint Champions League leading scorers on seven.
Yet it was Liverpool's first-half display against the Spanish giants, which really left the Kop captain purring, regardless of his own personal milestone, The Sun reported.
Things are certainly looking good for the Reds than at any stage of the season, with Fernando Torres also hitting peak form after a hamstring-dogged campaign.
