Pep Guardiola wants to avoid Arsenal in the Champions League quarter-final draw if possible because he believes that the Premier League side play the most similar football to Barcelona, according to a report from Sport.

The Blaugrana chief thinks that his team's tactics work best when facing teams that are setup differently because they can play around them and cause surprises.

But the Gunners have a similar philosophy and that could see the Catalan side unable to reproduce their best form in the last eight of the elite European competition, Sport state.

Well.. so i guess the will to avoid each other is mutual

Liverpool for the win, Gerrard possibly for top scorer. The way that we destroyed Real Madrid gives me a lot of confidence that we are in the driving seat at the moment. Lets just hope the international break doesn't diminish the reds' remarkable form.

Didn't watch the Utd game because I was at Jujitsu, but I heard they played very poorly.

I'll catch it on the ITV highlights after the news.

Hmm, not sure I agree with that entirely, they had some flashes of good forward play, but their defense still looked a bit suspect to me. My gut feeling is that the weight of games that they are playing is just taking its toll on them.

:blink: That was close!!!! but we got the away goal and now its easier for us to win at Emirates!! and btw what a goal it was :o

Man Utd is in trouble again :p gave away 2 away goals.. they can beat Porto 2-0 in the second leg but you never know..

Oh and good luck tomorrow the Reds!!! :bounce:

as it stands Porto can lose 2-1 and still go through..

Err not quite.... that'd be 4-3 to United, away goals only count if it's the aggregate score is a draw. United only need a 1-0 to go through.

You're right. We played well at some parts, but we lost the ball so many times at one point I thought we was watching a Division 1 team, it was ridiculous.

Was it just me, or was the referee a complete and utter retard? There were so many times he should have stopped play, and a couple of times when it should have been a penalty, and yet we get completely and utterly robbed. FC Porto were playing pretty dirty at times IMO. Not looking forward to Portugal if they're going to be playing like that.

You are right.. the level of refereeing in these European games is woeful.. and at times it seems that they have something against the British clubs.. well at least I do feel it is so..

2-2 is not a good result. 48 hours after a difficult game against Villa it was more than tough. But we ain't down yet, we can manage to win at Porto (or draw at least 3-3). We really need some rest if we want to play every competition and win something.

I'm not sure the referee was that bad, some decisions weren't take but nothing that can change the result.
