Great for Liverpool. And a semi final against United could be fun. Still though Porto won't be pushovers.

Bye bye Spurs :-(

City and Spurs play in the league 4 days after the CL, so 3 games in 11 days

Smashed them 5-0 away last year but I presume it won't be that easy this time, but I hope that it will make them mindful of what happened.

This has definitely been the season where United's run of favourable Cup draws has come to a very sudden end. FA Cup been as bad as it could be and PSG and Barcelona is pretty grim.

FFS spurs are playing Brighton on 7th April 1630hrs so it's likely a TV game then city in the CL first leg on the 9th April. 48 hours later. City have Cardiff on the 6th April at 12.30hrs.

Also I thought uefa always alternated the legs so if you played the 1st leg on a Tuesday then the 2nd leg was on a Wednesday or vice versa. Both the spurs and city games are showing as Tuesday.

Tough draw for us.
This I'd have preferred city or Liverpool at this stage. A semi final against Liverpool would be amazing though heartbreaking potentially too. Can't see Spurs getting past City but I did say I had a feeling for them.

Probably City's best chance to get to a final given their current form.
Agree totally on whoever said United's cup luck had run dry. Tough path to the title.

Get the kite, Beavis.

But United have overcome Arsenal, Chelsea and PSG in that run, so even though it's been very tough it's not been insurmountable. Same applies to the Barca game. Sure it'll be difficult... and? You've got to beat the rest to be the best :datass:

Suarez back at OT could get quite lively.

The FA Cup semi finals are that weekend so if Brighton beat Millwall on Sunday then the Spurs game will be rearranged.

I had forgotten that. The hopefully it is rearranged as that gives us our best chance but then complicates things later in the season.
