Liverpool have been drawn against Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League quarter-finals and manager Jurgen Klopp admits it's the toughest draw his team could have had.

Gunners boss Klopp's former club brushed aside Tottenham Hotspur 5-1 over two legs, after a 2-1 win in London. His current club Liverpool eased through after a 1-1 draw against local rivals Manchester United gave the Reds a 3-1 aggregate victory.

Klopp said he didn't want to face the German giants in the next round, as they are clearly the best team left in the competition. "Dortmund? Of course not," said Klopp after the draw. "Why should I want the strongest team in the tournament in the next round? I am not so silly. But if [it happens] then we go there and try to win too. I saw only a little bit of the other results but I am pretty sure there are no easy games any more so it is not too important. We have to be prepared and hopefully we are."

Other mach-ups in the quarter-finals see Sevilla, trying to win the competition for the third successive season, face Athletic Bilbao; La Liga rivals Villarreal meet Czech side Sparta Prague and Portugal's Braga face Shakhtar Donetsk of Ukraine. The matches will be played on 7 and 14 April.
