English clubs face mixed opposition in the group stages of the Champions League competition.

Manchester City have been drawn against last season's finalists Juventus, from Italy and Europa League winners Seville, from Spain. The final team in Group D is the German side Borussia Monchengladbach.

Arsenal were drawn in Group F along with Bayern Munich who have knocked the Gunners out of the competition in two out of the last three seasons.

Greek side Olympiakos and Dinamo Zagreb from Croatia will also take on Arsene Wenger's side.

Chelsea fans might consider themselves lucky - they were drawn against Dynamo Kiev, from Ukraine, and Maccabi Tel Aviv, from Israel in Group G.
