17.48 – So Group D is the obvious group of death. City must be cursing their luck, having also received a tough draw last year.
Meanwhile, Group E, which includes Chelsea, doesn’t look easy either.
In addition, Man United surely won’t slip up for the second year running, having received what most people will consider to be a favourable draw.
Arsenal will also likely fancy their chances of qualifying, while Celtic appear to have a difficult but not impossible task ahead of them.

It’s sure to be another fascinating year in the Champions League, with the prospect of a repeat of last year – when several high-profile teams exited the competition early on – very much appearing to be a significant possibility again this time, with a number of big teams being drawn together.
