English football's power in Europe has been on the decline for at least three seasons, statistics suggest.
Back in 2008 and 2009, English clubs made up 50 per cent of those in the Champions League quarter-finals.
However, in 2010 that dropped to two sides (25 per cent), before going back up to three in 2011 (38 per cent).
In 2012 just one side made it to the last eight, and in 2013 none managed to get through.
Last season, two sides, Chelsea and Manchester United, managed to make that stage, the same number as Germany, but one less than Spain, and half that of their own peak.
However, England are still the second most represented nation in the quarter-finals of the competition.
Despite a ban in the 1980s and early 1990s, English sides have reached the last eight on 60 occasions since its inception in 1956 (with two-legged games just counting as one appearance).
That's just eight behind Spain, whose sides have reached the latter stages on 68 occasions.
German sides have reached the quarter-finals on 52 occasions, and Italian sides on 51.
By far the most successful English side in terms of last eight appearances is Manchester United.
The Red Devils have been in the quarters on 18 separate occasions over the years.
That's the third highest all-time number of appearances at that stage of the competition, behind Real Madrid (31) and Bayern Munich (25).
Liverpool have made it to the quarters on 13 occasions, followed by Chelsea with nine, Arsenal seven, and Leeds three.
