English Teams Beat Germans 17-3 On Aggregate In Champions League Last 16
Liverpool's emphatic win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League last 16 tonight means that all four English clubs have progressed to the quarter-final stages of the competition.
Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham and Liverpool will be part of the draw on Friday morning but for the first time since 2006, there will be NO German teams involved in the latter stages of the UCL.
The last time four English clubs reached the Champions League quarters? 2009.

Man City 10-2 Schalke
Liverpool 3-1 Bayern
England 17-3 Germany#UCL
So, does this mean the Premier League is the best league in world football?
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men beat Paris Saint-Germain in a dramatic tie at the Parc des Princes, Pep Guardiola's team smashed ten goals past Bundesliga side Schalke, Tottenham knocked four past high flyers Borussia Dortmund and Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool scored three against Bayern on Wednesday night.
If you total the goals scored against German sides in knockout stages, then those from the Premier League are 17-3 up on aggregate.
