The Champions League quarter-finals have afforded Spurs the opportunity to save some face, after falling irrecoverably behind Manchester City and Liverpool in the Premier League title race - as they face City next month with a semi-final place at stake.

The tie will mark the tenth time English sides have squared off in the competition's latter stages, and only the third occurrence in the last ten seasons, but it comes as no surprise given that half of the eight sides hail from the Premier League - with Liverpool and Manchester United also joining the party.

? That all brings us up to a little over one year ago, when then-Premier League leaders Manchester City were faced with an English opponent in Europe for the first time.

So, with one all-English tie and the potential for another in the semis, here's a look back at the nine other ties that have graced the competition.

Liverpool quite liked a tie against another English side in the Champions League back in the day, and an Anfield late show against Arsenal in 2008 will no doubt go down as one of their favourites.

Goals from Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane had Liverpool leading within half an hour of the first leg, and though City threatened a comeback when they scored within two minutes in the return fixture at the Etihad, goals from Salah and Roberto Firmino in the second half left the English champions-elect in their dust.

A combative second half saw Didier Drogba salvage some hope for his side off the bench, but Park Ji-Sung's immediate reply put Chelsea - reduced to ten men after Ramires' red card - away.
