Premier League leaders Manchester City have been drawn against English rivals Liverpool in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

City secured their place in the last eight by beating Basel, having won the away leg 4-0, but then lost 2-1 at home in the second leg.

Liverpool saw off Porto in the round of 16, which also saw an impressive away performance with a 5-0 victory at the Estadio do Dragao ahead of a routine goalless draw at Anfield.

Anfield will host the first leg of the quarter-final tie, which will be played on April 3 or 4 with the second leg to be held on April 10 or 11.

Elsewhere in Friday's quarter-final draw, holders Real Madrid were handed a tie against Italian giants Juventus, who beat Tottenham in the last round.

LaLiga leaders Barcelona will play Roma, while the reward for Sevilla's victory over Manchester United was a date against Bayern Munich of Germany.

The two English clubs have already played each other twice in the Premier League this season.

Manchester City romped to a 5-0 home win during September, with Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane both scoring twice after Sadio Mane had been sent off.

Liverpool, though, gained revenge at Anfield in January when they inflicted what so far has been the only Premier League defeat for City, who were beaten 4-3 with two late goals adding some respectability to the final scoreline.

Champions League quarter-final ties are as follows:

Barcelona v Roma

Sevilla v Bayern Munich

Juventus v Real Madrid

Liverpool v Manchester City

Ties to be played on April 3-4 and April 10-11.


Guardiola removes yellow ribbon before City win at Stoke

Pep Guardiola could be seen removing his yellow ribbon in the dugout shortly before his Manchester City side took on Stoke on Monday night.

Last week the City boss was fined £20,000 and warned as to his future conduct after accepting a charge of "wearing a political message" in relation to the ribbon, which Guardiola wears in support of imprisoned politicians in his native Catalonia.

Guardiola has argued wearing the symbol is not political but accepted it is in breach of the FA's rules.

And the 47-year-old Catalan left it until the last minute to remove the ribbon before Monday's 2-0 win, and was wearing it again in the post-match press conference.

Asked about the ribbon in that press conference, Guardiola said: "I respect the FA. I don't agree, but I have to respect it. They allow me to wear it before and after the game, so it's here now."

Guardiola was wearing a yellow daffodil during the match, in common with counterpart Paul Lambert and all other Premier League managers this weekend, to raise awareness for the Marie Curie charity.

"They (the club) gave it to me," Guardiola said. "It's Marie Curie. If the club give it to me, I always wear it."

Guardiola has said he will continue to wear the ribbon for pre- and post-match media commitments, as is permitted. The FA's kit and advertising regulations refer specifically to the technical area during games.

Eliaquim Mangala looks set to miss the rest of the season with a knee injury, Everton boss Sam Allardyce has said.

The French centre-back, who is on loan at Goodison Park from Manchester City, underwent surgery earlier this week after suffering the injury against Crystal Palace last month.

Allardyce said at Friday's press conference: "We assessed the scans and we've seen there is a little bit more damage than expected.

"I think it is highly unlikely we will see him again this season. Manchester City want us to rehabilitate him so we will do that."

Allardyce also addressed speculation he could leave the club at the end of the season.

"I am here as long as I win football matches, and if you don't win football matches it doesn't matter how long your contract is," he said.

He also hit back at criticism of the style of play under his charge.

"Style of play is only brought up by previous people making out from many years ago we were playing this type of football, which is 10 years ago past," he said.

"People speculate on it with no complete information at all."
