The Europa League Last 16 draw threw up a huge tie today, as Liverpool take on Manchester United. It will be the first time they rivals have ever played in a European competition.
Unsurprisingly, Twitter exploded with the news of the fixture.
The matches will be played a week after one another on 10 and 17 March - the first leg will be played at Anfield and the second at Old Trafford.
Kick-off times will be confirmed later this afternoon.
Louis van Gaal's team progressed after a 6-3 aggregate win over Danish minnows FC Midtjylland. United had suffered a shock 2-1 defeat in Copehagen a week ago, but managed an impressive 5-1 win on the night after going behind.
