This year's UEFA Champions League draws has some tough groups

Divock Origi axe shows how strong Liverpool’s squad is – Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp stressed Liverpool have done all they can to make signings in this window and admitted there could be more activity at Anfield before next week's deadline.

"There is nothing certain and we are respecting Man City's position".

Bayern Munich have reached the last eight of the Champions League the past six seasons, with the last five of those campaigns seeing them finish as champions of Germany.

Atletico have the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Yannick Carrasco and former Chelsea player Fernando Torres.

"Yes, maybe [because of the way we press] - not sure, but we don't press all the time, so you can play". It's a decent group from their pot and there was plenty of massive teams that they could have got, and Shakhtar certainly are not in the same bracket.

Watzke believes they have been handed the "toughest group" but insists Dortmund will rise to the challenge under new manager Peter Bosz.

Tottenham، runners-up behind their London rivals in May، face the unenviable task of facing holders Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund in Group H، as well as Cyprus' APOEL. Spurs will host Real at Wembley this time, however, their temporary home until the completion of their new stadium.

"Are they going to be champions again?"

He said: "We bring players in, develop them and give them the Champions League stage".

Following the draw held on Thursday in Monaco, the coming season is expected to be a thriller with some of the best teams drawn in one group.

"Divock Origi was not in the squad (against Hoffenheim on Wednesday), he has done nothing wrong, it just shows how big the quality already is".

Jose Mourinho has overseen a dominant start to the season for Manchester United in the Premier League.

The last time the two clubs met in the Champions League was the 2011 quarter-final when Real Madrid triumphed 5-0 over the two legs, including a 4-0 thrashing at the Bernabeu, a game in which Gareth Bale played for Tottenham.

"I think it's a risky group and, if you go to the recent history of United, United lost against Basel, United couldn't beat Benfica in two matches".

"In this moment it's very hard to tell if it's a good or bad group stage".

The deep lying playmaker is key to the Cyprus' team's hopes.

Flanagan doesn't get much of a shout for involvement right now, but he serves as the flawless example of what confidence and opportunism can do for a player, given his involvement in the title chase of 2013/14.
