Liverpool aiming to steal a march on title rivals City

Fantastic Four: Liverpool make it quartet of English teams into UCL last 8 with win over Bayern

Barcelona players apparently want Manchester United or Porto in the next round of the Champions League.

There is the prospect of the two clubs being paired together, or against fellow Premier League rivals Liverpool or Tottenham Hotspur, while Barcelona, Juventus, Ajax and Porto are the other potential opponents.

But one possible explanation of this might be the fact that UEFA hold mock Champions League draws and these might be the outcome of one such mock incident. However, prior to that the last meeting between Premier League sides in the competition came in 2011, when United eliminated Chelsea at the quarter-final stage.

Back in the 2000s for two successive seasons England provided four quarter-finalists on the biggest stage of all and now it has happened again.

Everything inevitably comes to an end at some point but if an English team is to win the Champions League this season, they are likely to have to beat a team containing Messi or Ronaldo, or defeat both, in order to claim the trophy.

Jurgen Klopp's men won 3-1 in the Allianz Arena on Wednesday to ensure that they will be in the hat for the quarter-final draw on Friday.

For the first time in 10 years, four English clubs have reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League - the continent's blue riband club competition.

It is too soon to start talking of a return to English domination of the Champions League but the quality at the top end of the Premier League this season is unrivalled. Fantastic 3-0 win in first leg of our Round of 16 tie against Borussia Dortmund set up 4-0 aggregate victory.

Predictably amid the backstop of the Brexit shambles on the political front, some fans wondered aloud whether English teams knew the country was meant to be exiting the EU.

But Sherwood thinks that while they may have more games to play by remaining in both competitions, they are right not to prioritise.

They feel it would be too much of a hassle to have two Champions League games in Manchester on consecutive nights.
