Liverpool sent ‘Dangerous’ Inter Milan ‘Warning’ as Reds take next step towards potential historic quadruple

Liverpool are aiming to book their place in the Champions League quarterfinals tonight with a win over Inter Milan in the second leg of the Round of 16 after securing a strong 2-0 lead in the first leg.

John Aldridge has sent Jürgen Klopp’s side a warning over what he believes is a ‘dangerous’ tie.

And the former Anfield striker has a good point even if the Serie A champions failed to have a shot on target in Nico Barella’s absence in February.

Writing in his column for the Liverpool ECHO, Aldo sent the Reds a ‘warning’: “Liverpool play the second leg of their Champions League tie with Inter Milan on Tuesday night and I think it could be a dangerous one.”

Based on the first leg, Liverpool should be wary of Inter Milan at Anfield

While Simone Inzaghi’s men failed to register a shot on Alisson Becker’s goal, they had the Reds pinned in their half and would have had many fooled into thinking they were the counter-pressing side breathing down Manchester City’s neck in the Premier League.

So although Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah to win the game and in some viewers’ eye, the tie, there is still plenty of work to be done against a fantastic team.

Trent Alexander-Arnold was superb against West Ham and earned an 8./7/10 rating from WhoScored for a display that saw him grab an assist, save a certain goal with a goal-line clearance and play five key passes.

However, he will be up against Ivan Perisic, a tricky customer that gave him huge issues and that will be a key battle.

After the Hammers game, Klopp said: “If he couldn’t defend, he would not play here – at least not that in that position.

“He improved in all departments and defending of course as well, but he is that young that he can improve and has to improve, but yes, his defending is not a problem we have.”

Aldridge insists Liverpool can complete quadruple but calls for calm

The 63-year-old says it will be a “big ask” for Liverpool to win the Carabao Cup, the FA Cup, the Premier League and the Champions League this season and there’s really no arguing with him.

Until the Reds get their hands on trophy no.2, I personally don’t think there’s any use in having the conversation.

Aldridge continued in the ECHO: “It’s a big ask for Liverpool to win all of their remaining games – let’s be honest.

“There’s a lot of games still to play.

“It’s going to be really difficult for us. Hopefully Man City are the same in many ways.”
