The Reds took a 5-0 lead into the game.
"It feels good. I can not feel what people feel when they wait so long but it feels good, I know about it".
"It feels really good", said Klopp.
"I don't want to make it smaller than it is, but on the other side I don't want to make it bigger than it is", he told a news conference. They're expected to rotate heavily, but they still have the depth in attack to score several more goals, and we could see Liverpool try to run out the scoreline a lot longer just for the sake of fun.
"It's always one of the biggest games in the Premier League". Despite a goalless draw at Anfield, Liverpool's first leg heroics proved to be enough for Klopp's men to sail them through to the final eight of Europe's elite competition.

Thomas' strong Day 3 wasn't enough to catch the leader, but he sits now four strokes back with one round to play. Sharma, the only two-time victor on the European Tour this year who leads the Race to Dubai, didn't blink.
"That front three, when they're on fire, the way they play, the intensity, going to Anfield, the pace they've got in that team - they're going to be a hard proportion for any team in this tournament. Now we can prepare the Manchester game and I am looking forward to it".
Liverpool next play at arch-rival Manchester United on Saturday, and tonight's outing gave manager Jurgen Klopp a chance to keep his side somewhat refreshed for the blockbuster fixture of the weekend.
In Champions League, eight of Liverpool's nine games have ended with more than 2.5 goals. "It's about bringing fit players and, in the moment, we are in a league where we all have to deliver, play constantly and all that". That's what I meant when I said we will not rest players. I think this year we belong there [in the quarter-finals] to be honest.
Liverpool have carried on their fine form since dishing out Porto's heaviest ever European home defeat three weeks ago by strengthening their position in the Premier League's top four with routine wins over West Ham and Newcastle.
"At this stage you need to have belief that you can win it, although still take it a game at a time". We respect Porto too much and the competition too much to think about real rotation.
