Champions League: Six British sides await draw for group stages

Six British teams await the draw for the Champions League group stage, which takes place on Thursday at 17:00 BST in Monaco.

Premier League champions Chelsea, runners-up Tottenham and third-placed Manchester City are all in the draw.

They will be joined by Europa League winners Manchester United, as well as Liverpool and Scottish champions Celtic who both came through qualifying.

The group stages of the competition begin on 12-13 September.

The last time six British teams qualified for the group stages was in 2007-08, when English sides Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal were joined by Scottish clubs Celtic and Rangers. The final saw Sir Alex Ferguson’s United defeat Avram Grant’s Chelsea on penalties.
