Liverpool's 3-1 win over Bayern Munich meant that four Premier League sides will play in the quarter-final of this season's Champions League for the first time since 2008/2009 season.

This will be the first time in ten years that four teams from the same nation have all qualified for the competition's last eight.

Both French and German champions were knocked out by Premier League sides in their respective round of 16 clashes and it now looks like English clubs are beginning a revolution in the European scene.

Barcelona is considered the biggest threat to these English clubs who are looking to win the trophy since Chelsea last won it 2012.

The 2008-09 season was the last time the competition had four competitors from England which included Liverpool, Chelsea, United and Arsenal, but the following season saw that number dropped to two.

Man United made it through to the finals of the 08-09 season, only to lose to eventual winners Barcelona in Rome, after three of the four sides in the semi-finals hailed from the United Kingdom.
