Manchester United will play Barcelona and Liverpool will play Porto in two of the four quarterfinal matchups determined at the Champions League draw Friday at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.

"The Chelsea game was positive, it was a positive performance".

In stark contrast to title-chasing Liverpool, the Londoners are fighting an increasingly forlorn battle against an immediate return to the Championship. In the second leg, we saw the character of Porto and the quality they have.

Liverpool FC - who beat Burnley 4-2 in the Premier League last weekend - are still looking for their first major trophy under Klopp since his appointment as Brendan Rodgers' successor back in 2015.

"For those anxious about the size of the task facing Ole and his team, remember how we were written off completely at the time of the draw with Paris Saint-Germain". Liverpool's first goal set the tone for the tie and their third ended Bayern's hopes of a sixth Champions League crown. Form is crucial at this stage of the season when battling relegation, and the Cottagers have absolutely none of it.

Jurgen Klopp's side, fresh from knocking out Bayern Munich in the last 16, will be confident of beating the Portuguese champions after defeating them 5-0 on aggregate in the last 16 on their way to the final last season.

Tottenham and Manchester City will face each other in an all-English quarter-final of the Champions League next month.

"For fans spending their money and coming to watch us I think you understand in this league you can lose and you can get relegated from this division if you're Fulham but there is a way to lose".

Previous meetings at Craven Cottage have not been short of goals.

After a goalless draw in Merseyside in the first leg, the Reds put in a sensational display to knock the Germans out of the competition after a Sadio Mane double and a Virgil van Dijk header secured a 3-1 win.

While in a genuine title challenge involving themselves and Manchester United, a late Yossi Benayoun victor in the Bernabeu against a Real Madrid team boasting the talents of Fabio Cannavaro, Arjen Robben and Raul was a huge confidence booster for Rafa Benitez's side.

"When you look at Liverpool, they're the deadliest front three in the Premier League", he said.
