England has four teams in the quarterfinals of the Champions League for the first time in a decade after Liverpool joined both Manchester clubs and Tottenham in the last eight of the competition with victory over Bayern Munich.

Not since Liverpool, United, Arsenal and Chelsea reached the same stage in 2008/ 9 have Premier League teams been so dominant in Europe - although Barcelona ended up as champions that season.

But with the good comes the bad and Uefa has confirmed that Manchester United may have to reverse their quarterfinal fixtures to accommodate neighbours Manchester City.

There is no seeding or country protection at this stage, but Uefa says: “Manchester City and Manchester United will not be able to play at home on the same night, nor on consecutive nights, following a decision made by the relevant local authorities.

“Therefore, should both clubs be drawn at home in the same week, the team having finished lower in the domestic league the previous season - in this case Manchester United - will be reversed in accordance with the Uefa Club Competitions Committee principles.”
