The Norwegian joined Liverpool from Monaco in 2001 and became the club's first-choice left back for seven years, making 224 appearances and famously winning the Champions League in 2005.

In an article titled "Barcelona tie is what the Champions is all about", they talk about the "bad luck" which United have faced so far in the draws.

Real Madrid won the Champions League last season.

They were handed a tough test against PSG in the Round of 16 and now come up against FC Barcelona in the quarter finals.

A new generation of Manchester United players will have to get through Barcelona to win the Champions League.

Will Guardiola lead City to the Champions League crown this season?

Giroud unwilling to accept bit-part role at Chelsea
Maurizio's Sarri's side are now sixth in the Premier League, three points behind fourth-placed Arsenal , but with a game in hand. The race for the top-four in the Premier League has had to go on the backburner this weekend, with the FA Cup taking priority.

Last season, Messi was helpless as his side crashed out at the same stage after a stunning 3-0 loss to Roma and United will be hoping for a similarly toothless performance from the great man.

The draw means there will be three clashes between the sides in 10 days in April with a Premier League fixture following hot on the heels of their second leg. He may have one eye on the quarter-final against Porto but Liverpool need to focus as they have not been flawless of late domestically.

Pep Guardiola would not be too upset if Manchester City slipped up in their latest trophy quest, says Danny Mills, as "the FA Cup is not really on his radar".

The semi-final draw was also made and Manchester United will meet Liverpool if both win their last-eight ties.

City have the greater depth and quality, plus the experience of being at this stage of the competition before, but Spurs are risky, and this tie could go all the way to penalties before we know who will face Ajax or Juventus in the semis. Since then, Barca have beaten United in two finals (2009 and 2011), and Ernesto Valverde's team will be favourites to progress to the last four.

Manchester United's tie against Barcelona means caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will enjoy another trip to the Nou Camp, where he scored the victor in United's Champions League final win over Bayern Munich in 1999.
