Confirmed: Here are who the five Premier League teams could draw in the Champions League last 16

Champions League last 16 draw: When is it and who can Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Spurs get?

'It is one of the better ones (performances).

You can watch Keane speak about Liverpool here. And why can Chelsea basically start planning for a trip to Camp Nou?

The Champions League group stage ended in a flurry of goals, most of them conceded by Spartak Moscow. The other non-English clubs that went through in second place are Basel, Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk and Porto.

Considered one of the strongest of the elite sides remaining in the competition, they will likely have to run a gauntlet of Europe's finest in order to get their hands on the trophy.

The draw is made up of two pots: the group winners and the runners-up.

When and where is the last-16 draw?

England became the first country in history that will have five football teams in the UEFA Champions League playoffs, according to The Daily Mail newspaper of the UK.

The Reds joined Barcelona, Besiktas, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Roma among the group winners on Wednesday night.

The draw will take place at 11am GMT on Monday 11 December at Uefa's headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland. The Parisians won the first game against Bayern 3-0, and the Bundesliga team will have to win by a four-goal margin to finish top.

Chelsea hopes for a merciful draw and avoid the title contenders, PSG and Barcelona, aiming to be drawn against Besiktas. It became possible to enter five teams only from 2015-16, when the Europa League winners were awarded a Champions League place. Be a champ and challenge some pals to the quiz too - Ta!

In fact their only three options are Barca, PSG and Besiktas. Defensive deficiencies won't go away, but that attack, laced with so much pace and ability, is as good as anything out there right now.

Premier League clubs enjoyed a sustained period of success in continental competition between 2005-2012 when there were eight English Champions League finalists in as many years with Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea, all going on to win the competition.

Manchester United finished top of Group A and as it stands will face Bayern Munich (4), *Juventus (5), *Sevilla (7), *Shakhtar Donestk (16), *Porto (12) or *Real Madrid (1). It's all fairly even apart from Chelsea's hugely skewed numbers.
