It was mixed news for the English clubs in Monday's Champions League draw, with Liverpool v Bayern Munich the stand-out out tie of the last-16.

Barcelona and Juventus were the teams Liverpool needed to avoid and while Bayern have some top players, they are not enjoying a great season and Jurgen Klopp will look at a game against the biggest club from his home nation and believe it is winnable.

Manchester United had different emotions, as we know how good the Paris Saint-Germain trio of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani can be when they are up against decent defenders.

They will now have a chance to rip into that current United back four in February and the results might be pretty ugly.

Tottenham and Manchester City also dodged a few bullets in the draw, but Spurs will have a tougher task of getting past German league leaders Borussia Dortmund that City will have beating another Bundesliga side in Schalke.
