UK teams' Champions League clash

UK Champions League clashes

Liverpool and Chelsea will play each other in the Champions League after the draw for the quarter-finals.

The Reds will host the first leg of the tie at Anfield, and the team that wins will play either Barcelona or Bayern Munich in the semi-finals.

Elsewhere, Manchester United will take on FC Porto at Old Trafford, while Arsenal face Villarreal in Spain.

The winners of both of those quarter-finals will play each other in the last four as well.

It's fifth season in a row that Liverpool and Chelsea will meet in the Champions League.

The first legs of the quarter-finals will take place on 7-8 April, with the return legs happening the following week.

The semi-finals take place on 28-29 April and 5-6 May and the final will be played on Wednesday 27 May in Rome.

The draw for the quarter-finals of the Uefa Cup was also made, and the only British team still in the competition, Manchester City, will play German side Hamburg.

It's an interesting match as Hamburg are managed by a familiar face to Premier League fans, former Spurs boss Martin Jol.
