Jurgen Klopp watches Liverpool at Burnley

Liverpool and Man City fans react to all English Champions League tie

The draw

When the Champions League draw was made, the chances of an all-English tie was more remote than it had previously been thought, with Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur all crashing out, but with country protection gone, there was always the chance that Liverpool could draw Manchester City – and fate decided that was going to happen.

The two sides with the best attacking players in the Premier League, and possibly even Europe are now set to go head to head, and while many people think Manchester City are the favourites given their amazing league form this season, there are also those who think Liverpool are the favourites – or at least in with a massive shot after the last meeting between the pair, where Liverpool had Manchester City on the ropes for large parts of the game.

Given how vital away goals are, it looks set to be a thriller, though it may be a far more cagey affair than a Premier League encounter.
