Manchester United's Champions League quarterfinal tie could be reversed

Last season's beaten finalists booked their spot in Friday's draw, while Premier League rivals Manchester City had put themselves in the hat by annihilating Germans Schalke on Tuesday, and last week Tottenham finished the job against Borussia Dortmund as Man United stunned PSG. "But it has been a top league and there haven't been that many teams [in the latter stages] of this one".

Liverpool have previously taken part in six quarter-finals in the Champions League era, all of which have been post-2000. It was also a display of muscle-flexing by City, Liverpool and Spurs that will have been noted by the likes of Barcelona and Juventus, the two continental heavyweights most likely to stand in the way of an English triumph in the final in Madrid on June 1.

Those at Old Trafford would be forced to flip the order of their quarter-final encounters.

Pep Guardiola's side are widely considered one of the favourites to win the Champions League, despite the presence of teams such as Juventus and Barcelona in the competition.

Barcelona players apparently want Manchester United or Porto in the next round of the Champions League. The first showing was in 2001/02 when the Merseyside club lost 4-3 on aggregate to Bayer Leverkusen who would go on to finish runners-up to Real Madrid.

"They deserve to be there and we know they will be tough teams".

"We're all very focused on the Champions League, Leo as well".

"To have four teams in the last eight is great for England", said the Liverpool midfielder.

"Man City kind of got through pretty comfortably in the end".

Back in 1999 Fergie's men beat Inter, then Juventus en route to the Final, where they completed the famous treble with a last-gasp comeback win against Bayern Munich.

The Premier League might be awakening again as a European force, but Ronaldo and Messi remain the kings of the competition and they should strike fear into the hearts of every English club still dreaming of winning this year's Champions League.
