United face Roma in Champions League

English trio kept apart in draw

Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United were kept apart in Friday's quarter-final draw Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United were kept apart in the Champions League quarter-final draw.

Jose Mourinho's side face Valencia, while Liverpool were paired with Arsenal's conquerors PSV Eindhoven and Manchester United meet AS Roma.

The draw was also made for the semi-final, and it will see Chelsea and Liverpool meet in a repeat of the 2005 clash if they both emerge victorious.

Manchester United will play AC Milan or Bayern Munich if they beat AS Roma.

All the Premiership sides are likely to be happy with their draw, with the prospect left open for an all-English final in Athens on 23 May.

Liverpool have already beaten PSV in the group stages, winning 2-0 at Anfield after drawing 0-0 in Holland - and they have the added incentive of having the second leg at home.
