Tottenham were drawn against Manchester City in the only all-English Champions League quarter-final, with Liverpool pulling out Porto and Man Utd to face Barcelona.

Surprise package Ajax were first out of the hat and they’ve been drawn against Italian giants Juventus, who came from behind to beat Atletico Madrid inspired by Cristiano Ronaldo.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds pulled out what many will feel is one of the two best possible ties when they were paired with Porto, while the all-Premier League battle takes place between Tottenham and Manchester City.

Manchester City won both of their Premier League ties with Tottenham last season and also beat Mauricio Pochettino’s side at Wembley earlier in this campaign.

Manchester United’s reward for dumping PSG out of the Champions League is a tie against Lionel Messi and Barcelona, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer returning to the Nou Camp – the scene of his and United’s memorable final victory over Bayern Munich 20 years ago this year.
