The Reds reached the Champions League final last season but ended up losing to Real Madrid in the showpiece last May.

The quarter-final first legs take place on 9 April and 10 April.

Liverpool, who eliminated Bayern Munich in the Champions League last 16 midweek, travel to second-bottom Fulham in the Premier League on Sunday.

Verdict: Suffered their first Premier League defeat under Solskjaer against Arsenal but it was still a decent overall performance by United.

Liverpool FC have suffered something of a dip in form in recent weeks but they are now just a point behind the defending champions as they chase their first major trophy under Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has ruled out spending big this summer despite rumours that the signings of Virgil van Dijk and Alisson Becker could push the club into a new era of regular marquee arrivals.

Former Love Island star Mike Thalassitis found dead
The footballer turned reality star is reported to have been found dead in woodland near his home today (Friday, March 15). Love Island star Mike Thalassitis has died at the age of 26, after being found dead near his hometown in Essex.

City have the greater depth and quality, plus the experience of being at this stage of the competition before, but Spurs are risky, and this tie could go all the way to penalties before we know who will face Ajax or Juventus in the semis.

The weekend schedule opens on Saturday, with AFC Bournemouth hosting Newcastle United as +105 favorites, and Leicester City visiting Burnley FC as +145 chalk, while West Ham United looks to bounce back from a stunning 2-0 loss at Cardiff City as they host last-place Huddersfield Town sporting short -180 odds.

The promoted side, who sacked Claudio Ranieri and installed former England midfielder Parker last month, are 19th in the table with 17 points from 30 games and face a tough test against title-chasing Liverpool on Sunday. "I could not be further away from thinking it's the best draw because it isn't". Ajax won in 1973, the third of their four European titles, and Juventus won their second title in 1996.

Juventus have lost five finals since then but are hoping Ronaldo can fire them to glory this season after his hat-trick knocked out Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.

We have been drawn against Manchester City in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League.

"I think the owners want the Champions League, that's what they came in to do - it's the toss of a coin, they'd probably take one or the other".
