Manchester United FC have drawn Chelsea FC in today's UEFA Champions League quarter-final draw in Nyon. The two English giants last met in Champions League play in the 2008 final, which United won on penalties in Moscow. United earned passage to the quarter-final by defeating Olympique de Marseille by a 2-1 aggregate in the first stage of the knock-out round, with all goals coming coming in the 2nd leg at Old Trafford. Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez, who bagged a brace against Marseille in Tuesday night's Champions League tie versus Marseille, said about the draw, "We play in the same league and it is going to tough. Stamford Bridge is a nice stadium and it makes it little bit like a league game. But if there is an advantage, it is that we are home in the second game." 

Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti had this to say about the draw: " I'm not happy, I am not disappointed. I am realistic. They are a team we know very well and they know us very well."

The quarter-final first legs will be played on April 5/6 and the return legs on April 12/13.
