But Mourinho is only banking on two being in the semi-finals as he revealed his preferred last eight selections.

Mourinho knows from firsthand experience how emotional all-Premier League encounters in Europe can be, having overseen several titanic clashes against Liverpool in the Champions League during his first stint as Chelsea manager, including the semi-finals in 2005 and 2007 respectively.

"I'd like English teams to play against each other".

"I would do two matches with English teams, which would mean two in the semi-finals".

We'll start off with Liverpool, who made it a clean sweep of four Premier League clubs into the quarter-finals after Jurgen Klopp's men inflicted a 3-1 defeat upon Bayern Munich.

With four English clubs reaching the quarterfinals for the first time since the 2008-09 season, we may be on the cusp of a new period of European domination by the richest league in the world.

Liverpool FC are now in second place in the Premier League table as they look to try and win the title for the first time under Jurgen Klopp.

Juventus, Barcelona, Ajax and Mourinho's former club Porto make up the remaining teams, and the 56-year-old says he would fancy a kind draw for the Portuguese side.

They are doing so, so well during the competition that I think it would be unbelievable for one of them.

England play Holland in Guimaraes, Portugal, for a place in the final, on June 6, just five days after the Champions League final in Madrid.

The biggest result was Ajax seeing off defending champions Real Madrid in incredible fashion at the Santiago Bernabeu.

"I wouldn't like Juventus against Barcelona because I think it would be something really special". Nine years later the Red Devils again booted out an Italian side, this time Roma, which was followed by a narrow 1-0 aggregate success over Barcelona - thanks to Paul Scholes - and a dramatic penalty shoot-out triumph against Chelsea in the Final.
