Just eight teams remain in this season’s Champions League and with the likes of holders Real Madrid and PSG already out, the competition is wide open.

You would have to go back to 2008 to find the last time four English teams made the quarter-finals of the Champions League, when Arsenal , Liverpool , Chelsea and Manchester United all made the final eight.

United eventually went onto win the Champions League that year, which is a good omen for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, having progressed through the Round of 16 in the most incredible circumstances. After trailing 2-0 to PSG in the first leg, a controversial last-minute penalty from Marcus Rashford sent United through on away goals with a 3-1 win at the Parc des Princes.
