Liverpool are better equipped than Premier League title rivals Manchester City to win the Champions League this season. That’s according to former City player and manager Stuart Pearce, who believes the Reds have the greatest chance of any English team to win the European crown. Liverpool are through to the last 16 of the Champions League Last season’s beaten finalists booked their place in the last 16 this week with a 1-0 victory over Napoli. They joined Man City, Manchester United and Tottenham as the Premier League take their full complement of teams into the knock-out stages. Pep Guardiola’s side are big favourites for this year’s tournament after storming to the English title last season and winning their Champions League group by five clear points. But, speaking on Friday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Pearce said: “Liverpool were one step away from winning it last year. “They were a poor goalkeeping performance away from winning it, really. Loris Karius’ nightmare in Kiev cost Liverpool in the Champions League final “With Joe Gomez fully fit I would say they might just be the best equipped Premier League team to win the Champions League at this moment in time.” [article-rail-section title=”Premier League news on talkSPORT.com” posts_category=”232″ posts_number=”8″ query_type=”recent” /] The Premier League sides will find out who they will face in the last 16 on Monday, in the draw which comes live from Monaco at 11am. In the knockout round, teams play against each other across two legs, home-and-away, up until the final. READ MORE: Potential last 16 opponents for Liverpool, Man City, Man United and Tottenham The first legs of the round of 16 will be played from February 12-20, and the second legs will be played from March 5-13. Man City were the only English team to finish first in their group so are expected to get an easier opponent than their league rivals.

The Christmas holidays are fast approaching and teachers across Europe are busy writing up their end of term reports. With that in mind, we have decided to play teacher ourselves and give some feedback to teams across Europe’s top five leagues. Two representatives from the Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1, Bundesliga and Serie A will either achieve the teacher’s pet accolade or be told they must do better and stop being the class clown. SIGN UP – WIN £5k BY PLAYING DREAM TEAM WEEKENDER THIS WEEKEND England Teacher’s pet: Liverpool Is it their year? Liverpool did manage a fourth place finish last season but still finished 25 points off champions Man City. Both stake a fair claim to be top of the class yet with Liverpool one point ahead of Pep Guardiola’s side, the Anfield club are just about our Premier League prefects. Jurgen Klopp’s side have vastly improved the defensive side of their game, keeping eight clean sheets in 11 home games in all competitions. With Virgil van Dijk and Alisson at the back, they now have a solid defense to compliment the venomous trident up top. Class clown: Man United Is time running out for Jose? As for the Premier League’s biggest disappointment, there are no prizes for guessing it’s United. Jose Mourinho’s men seem to keep getting results to paper over the cracks – think Juventus/Newcastle/Young Boys – but ultimately the league table doesn’t lie. Having finished second last year and winning a so-called treble the year before, United are free falling their way down the league. This time last year, United were nine points and five places better off. Top four by Christmas, Jose? Spain Teacher’s pet: Alaves They have gone toe to toe with the big boys La Liga’s usual top performers are not dominating the league in the way that we have become accustomed to over the past decade. Barcelona are top with nine wins from 15 games, but top of the class in Spain goes to Alaves. The Spanish minnows finished 14th last season and are now just one point shy of fourth and a lucrative Champions League qualification spot. The season might still be young but the boys from northern Spain have already taken the scalp of Real Madrid. Class clown: Villarreal Even with Santi Cazorla, Villarreal look hopeless The dunces cap was destined for Madrid but Los Blancos have recovered somewhat since the appointment of Santiago Solari. As things stand the unwanted title goes to Villarreal. They have won five out of the last 19 games in all competitions. For a team with the likes of Santi Cazorla and Carlos Bacca, those numbers really aren’t good enough. The Yellow Submarine might have qualified from their Europa League group, but their La Liga record is well below par. Germany Teacher’s pet: Borussia Dortmund There has been cause for celebration this year It’s no surprise to see Dortmund at the top of the Bundesliga class after Lucien Favre whipped last season’s fourth-place side into shape. The Black and Yellows finished 29 points off Bayern Munich last season and are currently nine points clear of their would-be title rivals and seven ahead of next best Borussia Monchengladbach. There is a new lease of life at Dortmund who are still unbeaten after 14 games – scoring 35 goals. With future Ballon D’or winner Jadon Sancho and the Bundesliga’s joint top-scorer Paco Alcacer terrorising defences, Dortmund are now favourites for their first league title since 2012. Class clown: Bayern Munich An unusual season for Bayern Since Klopp’s departure Germany’s top flight has been a one-horse race with the pace set by Die Roten. However, things have not been simple for Niko Kovac during his debut season at the helm of Bayern. Back-to-back defeat at the hands of Hertha Berlin and Monchengladbach in October have left the Bavarians in an unfamiliar third position. Italy Teacher’s pet: Empoli Nothing Gross about Empoli current form Empoli pip Inter Milan as Italy’s most improved side. Maurizio Sarri’s old club have settled well in the top flight since winning promotion. The new kids in the class of Serie A were odds-on to go straight back down, a prospect that looked even more likely after a disappointing start to the season. Their form of late however, including three wins out of the last four, has put them five points clear of relegation. Class clown: Roma Eusabio Di Francesco’s face says it all The drop-outs in Italy are last season’s Champions league semi-finalists Roma. While they were still 18 points off top spot last year, their fall from grace in the league will be alarming for supporters. Roma have finished in the top three for the past five seasons and are now facing life without the Champions League – despite getting through their group with a game to spare this season. In the league they find themselves eighth, joint with Parma in 10th. They lost their star keeper Alisson, along with the midfield duo of Radja Nainggolan and Kevin Strootman, and the team already have less than half the points of league leaders Juventus. France Teacher’s pet: Lille Lille look like PSG’s biggest rivals this year Our teacher’s pet in League 1 French team has to be Lille. They flew out of the blocks, winning an impressive six from their opening seven. Striker Nicolas Pepe has 11 goals and five assists so far- the same as Neymar. Their form has dipped over the last five games but for a team that beat relegation by just a point last season, to now be sitting second behind the untouchable PSG is very impressive indeed. Class clown: Monaco A sad sight What comes up must come down, and on the opposite end of Lille’s ascending seesaw is Thierry Henry’s plummeting Monaco. The Red and Whites managed just two draws from the opening nine league games. Sacre Bleu! Henry is still in the job and has managed two wins in his last three games. Yet, for a club who won the title back in 2017, to now be sitting in 19th place is a scary dip in form. Both wins in the league have come away from home, with Monaco claiming two points out of a possible 21 at the Stade Louis II.
