You get the impression that everyone was delighted to see Liverpool drawn against Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Everyone apart from Liverpool and City fans, that is.

Both sides would no doubt have preferred a tie against Roma or Sevilla but now face an all-Premier League clash to reach the last-four of the competition.

There’s still a few weeks until the first-leg at Anfield on April 4 but plans are already being made by Liverpool fans.

They’ve already been urging supporters to gather on the streets outside Anfield more than two hours before kick-off to produce yet another famous ‘coach greeting.’ It’s something we’ve seen on numerous occasions before ahead of a big match with fans hangings off buildings and red pyrotechnics covering the road.

The poster declares: "We're going to show them exactly what money can't buy. Bring your flares and flags. Banners and bangers. Pints and Pyro. There will be thousands of scouse voices ready to scare em back to Mancland with their tails between their legs before the match even starts.

It adds: "We're going to show them exactly what money can't buy."


But City have experienced this all before.

Ahead of their all-important league clash in April 2014, Liverpool produced one of their first ever ‘coach greetings’ in a fixture they won 3-2.

But the Citizens don’t want to experience it again.

According to the Daily Mail, they will speak to both Liverpool and Greater Manchester Police to express their ‘serious concerns’ at the plans.

As you can imagine, after seeing the reports, Liverpool supporters are far from impressed.

Here is how the reacted to the news Man City were set to report them to the police:


Neutrals will certainly be looking for to the two-legged clash between the two sides with 13 goals being scored in the two league matches between each other this season.

Liverpool ran out 4-3 winners at Anfield in January but City triumphed 5-0 at the Etihad in September.
