Ajax, Barcelona, Juventus and Porto complete the quarter-final line-up, and Milner hopes as many English teams as possible make the last four.
"We'll have to work all of that out as that goes on".
In three ties between Premier League and Bundesliga opposition, the English clubs won 17-3 on aggregate, which will be regarded as a humiliating outcome by Germany's top teams. Ronaldo's never even been on the losing side against English opposition in the knock-out stages of the Champions League even dating back to his time at United, when Sir Alex Ferguson's men overcame the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal in all-English encounters.
Liverpool reached the final of the Champions League last season before losing 3-1 to Real Madrid in Kiev.
But England, whose teams dominated the old European Cup between 1976 and 1984 with seven wins, has not supplied a champion since Chelsea in 2012.
Tottenham were the first of the English teams to book their spot in the last-8 this season after they brushed aside a muted Borussia Dortmund.
While they are by no means firing on all cylinders, Liverpool can take great confidence from the fact they have got through two tough fixtures which if they had lost would have seriously damaged their season.
Barcelona and Juventus come next in the betting ahead of Liverpool, United and Spurs, with Ajax and Porto the two big outsiders.
So, English football is back, capped by Liverpool's victory in Munich on Wednesday night, but is the Premier League ready, once again, to dominate the Champions League?
"There are worse teams that have done well and got to finals".
"There's no doubt Salah hasn't been at his best, but they need help from midfield".
They are doing so, so well during the competition that I think it would be wonderful for one of them.
