Manchester United will have to reverse their Champions League quarter-final and play away if Manchester City are drawn at home at the same time amid safety fears.

Mourinho knows from firsthand experience how emotional all-Premier League encounters in Europe can be, having overseen several titanic clashes against Liverpool in the Champions League during his first stint as Chelsea manager, including the semi-finals in 2005 and 2007 respectively.

"We're all very focused on the Champions League, Leo as well".

This draw will be a special occasion for the English fans since four Premier League teams have made it to the quarter-finals this season and a number of European giants like Real Madrid and PSG have been knocked out. However, prior to that the last meeting between Premier League sides in the competition came in 2011, when United eliminated Chelsea at the quarter-final stage.

The La Liga outfit obviously won't say it publicly but it's claimed they've expressed their preference ahead of Friday's Champions League draw.

"Every team left in the competition is a good side", said Milner.

They claim Barcelona "would be satisfied" if they drew Manchester United or Porto.

It's going to be a free for all in the quarter-final stage, as previous stipulations stopping teams from the same Champions League group or the same country from facing each other are thrown out of the window.

Both Manchester clubs progressed to the last eight of the competition, but UEFA regulations do not allow two teams in the same city to play on the same day, nor on consecutive nights.
