    Mikel Arteta is certainly in for a good night's kip.

    Thanks for your company.

    Sweet dreams.

  2. 'The boys were exceptional'

    Liverpool 0-0 Arsenal (Arsenal win 5-4 on pens)


    Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta, speaking to Sky Sports: "I am really happy with the performance. I think the boys were exceptional. We corrected a few things from Monday and it was superb.

    "We competed much better, the level of aggression we had, the way we pressed them really high was exceptional.

    "Bernd Leno was really good. When we needed him we had him. You need a top individual performance to win at Anfield and that is what we had tonight.

    "I really have belief in Bernd. I know him really well and what he can give us. We didn't want Emiliano Martínez to go but it was probably the right thing for both parties to do.

    "To come here and play with the determination and courage is a big step forward for the team. They are on the right path.

    "The gap towards Liverpool is still big. We will keep improving to try and reach their level."

    On the draw with his former club Manchester City: "I was waiting and enjoying the victory and then we have to play Manchester City. It is what is, there are a lot of tough teams left in the competition and we will prepare for it."

  11. 'I liked a lot of parts, just missing the goals'

    Liverpool 0-0 Arsenal (Arsenal win 5-4 on pens)


    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, speaking to Sky Sports: "If there would have been a winner in 90 minutes it should have been us but we are not in dreamland, you have to score.

    "I liked a lot of parts of the game, we mixed it up a lot and I saw a proper performance, a lot of things we like on the pitch when you wear this wonderful shirt.

    "A penalty shoot out is tricky, everyone knows. That is it."

    What did the performance lack? "Goals. So many things are different when you mix it up in decisive positions especially. I really liked how the boys did it, there were a lot of good individual performances, it could have been a Premier League game but here or there we lacked the last pass. There were not a lot of chances in this game because there was a lot of work from both teams closing each other down.

    On Xherdan Shaqiri's absence: "Some were not involved. It is the time of the year when some things happen in the background and you have to react - that is what we did."

  13. "I feel I have proved I am No 1"

    Liverpool 0-0 Arsenal (Arsenal win 5-4 on pens)


    Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno, speaking to Sky Sports: "It was a very tough game. We made a few changes, you could see our philosophy and intention to win this game.

    "This is a chance to win another trophy, that is our target. Of course it is good for a goalkeeper to make some penalty saves and see some laughing faces after the end. I'd prefer to win the game without penalties. The main thing is we won the game.

    "It is not easy to come to same place with a big disappointment from Monday. We analysed the game and the manager found the right words to lift us.

    "The club has always given me the feeling I was the number one, I am the number one and will be the number one. My job is to prove it every week and I feel I have done that tonight."

  14. 'Pepe hasn't done enough yet'

    Liverpool 0-0 Arsenal (Arsenal win 5-4 on pens)

    Stephen Warnock

    Ex-Liverpool defender on BBC Radio 5 Live

    Nicolas Pepe has to prove that price tag. He hasn't done enough yet. He's had a season in the Premier League. Now he wants to show what he can do. He's slowly growing into it and showing signs of creating something from nothing. At times his final ball can be lazy and too relaxed, but he's still young - that will come in time.

    Tom Lawrence: Perhaps the most undeserved win of any team so far this season? Maybe just edges out the United win with the 105th minute penalty

    Mike Hall: This just shows that Liverpool are beatable if everyone tracks back. Leno made some good saves but they weren't the tap-ins he had no chance against on Monday.

  20. Post update

    Right, we have the quarter-final draw coming up.

    Anyone for Manchester City v Manchester United or Spurs v Arsenal?
