Manchester City face Tottenham in all-English Champions League tie

Premier League sides Manchester City and Tottenham have been drawn against each other in the Champions League quarter-finals.

It now means that the two sides will face each other three times in ten days, with their two Champions League games sandwiching their Premier League match at the Ethiad.

City’s Manchester neighbours United will come up against Spanish giants Barcelona, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer returns to the scene of his last gasp winner in the 1999 Champions League final.

Finally, Liverpool will come up against the team they faced in last year’s Champions League round of 16 as they were drawn against FC Porto. They won 5-0 over two legs last season and will be hoping for a similar result again.

The semi-final draw also took place and there’s the potential for another all-English tie, with fierce rivals Manchester United and Liverpool set to go head-to-head if they can win their respective quarter-finals.

Manchester City or Tottenham will face Ajax or Juventus in the other semi-final.
