The Reds avoided a tricky trip to far reaches of Europe, and will instead face a 30-mile trip to their north-west rivals.

The two sides have already faced each other twice in the league this season, with United winning 3-1 at Old Trafford and 1-0 at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp‘s side will be out for revenge as they bid to reach the quarter finals.

Klopp’s former side Borussia Dortmund were drawn to face Tottenham.
