The quarter-final first legs treated us to some memorable performances this week, but who will be crowned the UCL Player of the Week?

The UEFA Champions League quarter-final first legs have been and gone, leaving us with some finely poised ties and plenty of memorable moments.

Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino helped the Reds secure a two-goal cushion, scoring once and assisting another as Jurgen Klopp's side ran out 2-0 winners over Porto.

The Brazilian's performance led to him being named as one of the four nominees for the coveted UEFA Champions League Player of the Week crown, sponsored by Banco Santander - and he isn't the only Premier League star on the shortlist.

Tottenham's Heung-Min Son is also among the nominees for the coveted prize; the Korean's winning goal for Tottenham against Manchester City gave Mauricio Pochettino's side something to protect and build upon ahead of the second leg at the Etihad Stadium next week.

At Old Trafford, Barcelona defender Gerard Pique produced a resolute display to keep his former club Manchester United at bay, while his soon-to-be Barca teammate Frenkie de Jong rounds off the four-strong shortlist - the precocious Ajax midfielder was all-action as the Dutch giants battled to a 1-1 draw with Juventus.
