Virgil van Dijk described Liverpool achieving a quadruple as "almost impossible" but did not rule out the Reds doing so after taking another step towards it last Saturday.

Having won the EFL Cup in February, the Reds reached the FA Cup final with a 3-2 win over Manchester City.

They are a point behind Pep Guardiola's men in the Premier League and through to the semi-finals of the Champions League, where they could also potentially meet City in the final, after just facing each other twice in the space of a week.

Van Dijk downplayed the probability of Liverpool completing quadruple, but could not deny the gravity of that possible achievement.

"Nobody did the quadruple and there is a reason for it – because it is almost impossible to do," he said.

"All this talk about quadruple or treble is from the outside world and could put extra pressure on us.

"It is something that everyone would dream about, to win every competition you participate in, but we will see what it brings. Anything can happen, with other teams as well."

The Reds will have a gauntlet to run to claim the quadruple, with midweek games at both domestic and continental level all the way from now until the FA Cup final in May.

This week will see Liverpool face a pair of fierce rivals, hosting Manchester United on Tuesday before taking on Everton on Sunday.
