All four of the Premier Leagues representatives have made it this far, with Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool all discovering their fates for the next round of the competition.

Most City fans were clearly pleased with the result, feeling as though the Citizens will be able to continue their good run of form against Mauricio Pochettinos side.
They confidently saw off ​Bundesliga strugglers ​Schalke in the previous round, earning a stunning 10-2 aggregate victory, and many fans are eager to see their side replicate such a performance against ​Tottenham.​
Even Kyle Walker couldnt resist a dig...

YES!! Semi Finals Incoming 💪

Manchester United vs Barcelona
As for the other English sides, Ole Gunnar Solskjaers ​United have been handed a date with ​Barcelona, who are always one of the favourites to win the entire competition. 
On paper, Barcelona certainly seem to be one of the tougher opponents, but some fans clearly feel as though anything is possible under Solskjaer.

As for Barcelona, it appears as though fans are looking forward to the tie, as they look to add yet another Champions League trophy to their impressive trophy cabinet.
With ​Real Madrid crashing out in the last round, Ernesto Valverdes side are the last Spaniards in the competition, and they will definitely be glad to see Los Blancos three-year reign come to an end.

Liverpool vs FC Porto
Liverpool supporters were pleased to see their rivals handed such challenging ties, but their draw against Porto stands to be a tough ask. However, if you ask a large part of the Anfield faithful, the Reds stand to be in for a relatively simple affair.
Jurgen Klopps side impressed in the last round against Bayern Munich, and many fans feel as though Porto will be easier competition than the Bundesliga giants.
Never celebrate a cup draw. Its the fan equivalent of players who celebrate the award of a penalty

Ajax vs Juventus
The final tie of the round sees Ajax face off against Juventus. The conquerors of Real will come into this match on top of the world, earning rave reviews for their stunning 4-1 victory at the Santiago Bernabeu.
However, they will come up against a Juventus side featuring a terrifyingly-inspired Cristiano Ronaldo, who put in another outstanding individual performance to drag the Serie A side to victory over Atletico Madrid, and many supporters seem pleased with the outcome of the draw.
Another hatrick for Ronaldo

The winners of this tie will come up against the winners of Citys clash with Tottenham in the semi-finals, whilst the victors from Manchester United vs Barcelona and Liverpool vs Porto will square off in the last four.
Some City fans were eager to express their delight at their side of the draw, claiming that this could be the year that the Citizens bring home Europes most prestigious trophy.
If we get our full squad back and that include our cheerleader Mendy then we go on to win this trophy.

However, its safe to say that many feel as though Uniteds route to the final has not been too kind to them.
Its never going to happen, but Man Utd shithousing to victory in the semi-final second leg of a Famous Anfield Night in Europe would be hilariously funny
