Man City, Man United, Tottenham and Liverpool learn…

England’s leading clubs learned their Champions League fate in Thursday’s draw.

Here Press Association Sport looks at their opponents.

Manchester City

The Premier League champions were drawn in Group F, where they will face Ukraine’s Shakhtar Donetsk for a second successive season. Paulo Fonseca dressed as ‘Zorro’ after Shakhtar beat City to advance to the knockout stages last term. France’s Lyon and Hoffenheim of Germany are their other opponents for a City team highly fancied in Europe.

Manchester United

A familiar foe awaits the Red Devils after being drawn in Group H against Juventus and Cristiano Ronaldo, who spent six years at Old Trafford and won the 2008 Champions League with United. LaLiga side Valencia and Young Boys, of Switzerland, are United’s other opponents.


Spurs will play Barcelona for the first time since 1982. Mauricio Pochettino’s playing career at Espanyol saw the Argentine dismiss a link with Barca last year, saying he would rather work on a farm. PSV Eindhoven and Inter Milan, beaten by Spurs in the 2013 Europa League last 16, are the other opponents in Group B.


Paris St Germain’s star-studded squad await Liverpool, last season’s runners-up, in Group C. Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Gianluigi Buffon et al will be keen to upset the Reds, who also play Napoli and Red Star Belgrade.
