Liverpool stalwart Jamie Carragher has admitted that he would rather not be facing another English team in the Champions League quarter-finals.
The Reds will face Chelsea in the last eight of the competition, with centre-back Carragher having hoped for a tie against Bayern Munich.
He commented: "My initial reaction was that I didn't really want us to get another English team, because Europe is about playing European teams.
"The Chelsea lads probably felt the same. I suppose we are sick of the sight of each other really. But we both know what kind of games they will be and we all realise it will be tough.
"I was desperate for us to get Bayern Munich because I wanted to play in their new ground.
"I like to play in different stadiums across Europe, but if we beat Chelsea we could still draw them in the semi-final."
