Rio Ferdinand believes this is the best Liverpool team he has seen and insists they are doing everything right in their quest for a historic quad.

The Reds took a big step towards the Champions League final by securing a 2-0 win over Villarreal in the first leg of the semi-finals at Anfield on Wednesday night.

Having already won the League Cup this season, Jurgen Klopp’s men have an FA Cup final due next month and they are battling Manchester City for the Premier League title.

After Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane scored in a dominant team performance against Villarreal, Manchester United legend Ferdinand had nothing but praise for the Merseyside side.

“This is the best Liverpool team I’ve ever seen. They are relentless with and without the ball,” he told BT Sport.

“It’s the way they push teams, the energy, the commitment, the commitment, it’s amazing.

‘That [the quadruple] must be the goal. You will set the goal. If they achieve it, they are immortal, they are above anyone who has played the game in this land.

“Whether they can achieve that remains to be seen. But they’re ticking boxes along the way at the moment.”

Liverpool will be the big favorites for the Champions League final where they face either Manchester City or Real Madrid.

Former Reds striker Michael Owen echoed Ferdinand’s thoughts on Liverpool being the best team he’s seen and believes a quadruple is certainly possible given the way they are currently playing.

“Villarreal just caught a pulse. If Liverpool stole another one it would have been a game, a game. When Villarreal score an early goal in Spain you never know,” said Owen.

“It was total dominance. It’s the best team I’ve ever seen in a red jersey. They swarm you. Villareal has to think: ‘What hit us?’ It’s impossible to stop this incredible press. You are relentless.

‘Imagine[the quadruple]. It’s impossible… but now you’re thinking, can it happen? The way they play, the belief, you think it can happen?’
