Champions League draw pits Man City versus Spurs in all-English tie

Manchester City beat Tottenham 1-0 in the Premier League last October. Net

But Mills told The Debate the tournament will have no bearing on the quality of the club's season, and explained why City fans would still prefer to retain the Premier League title over a Champions League win - even if their players feel differently.

And Lionel Messi will still be there.

With four Premier League sides making their way to the final eight, Manchester City and Tottenham will be contesting the all-English tie of the round.

The first legs of the quarter-finals will take place on April 9 and 10, with the second legs on April 16 and 17.

United, like City, were initially drawn away in the first leg, but their tie was reversed due to UEFA regulations which prevent two teams from the same city playing at home in the last eight.

In an article titled "Barcelona tie is what the Champions is all about", they talk about the "bad luck" which United have faced so far in the draws. Juve will be at home in the second leg.

In Liverpool's next appearance at this stage of the competition they edged out Juventus, then Chelsea in the semi-finals, before THAT famous comeback victory over AC Milan in the 2004/05 Final.

City, who visit Swansea City in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Saturday, remain in the hunt to win four major trophies this season and those hopes will be boosted when star midfielder Kevin De Bruyne returns from a hamstring injury after the worldwide break.

"April is incredible with the fixtures we have, a lot of games, and everybody will be necessary to play".

That pairing brought together the only two quarterfinalists who have never been European champion.

"We're not challenging to win the league this year but we are challenging for the other two trophies".

Five-time champion Liverpool got a rematch against Porto, the team they beat in the last 16 last season.

"My standards are not thinking "we are Manchester City, we have to win everything. I hope this time we have better luck".

Gareth Bale's Real Madrid future is up in the air again after the return of Zindine Zidane to the managerial hotseat. "They've beat some big hitters - bring on another one".

"My second choice would be what I think would be fantastic extra motivation, something thy would deserve, I'd do Ajax against Porto", he said.
