Who can Premier League clubs face in the Champions League group stages?

The Champions League group stage draw is less than 24 hours away, so we take a look at who the four Premier League side’s can face this summer.

Having won the Premier League at a canter last season, Manchester City automatically slide into Pot 1, meaning in theory, they should have the easiest group.

Manchester United and Spurs finished second and third respectively last season and will go into pot two, while Liverpool, despite reaching last years Champions League final, will go into pot three after Benfica made it through to the group stages.

But who could each team face in the Champions League group stages when the balls are drawn on Thursday afternoon in Monaco…fear not, we’ve done the hard work so you don’t have to.
