    Liverpool fans should be cheering. The Manchesters should be okay. Spurs are f*cked

    Chelsea will need to put a solid result on the board early on as we can tend to make life unnecessarily difficult for ourselves in group stages

    Spurs will get through. Dortmund won't trouble them.

    So on the 27th Sep you have Liverpool playing Spartak in Moscow, then the next day you have ManU play CSKA in Moscow.

    What are the chances of one of these being changed to avoid clashes between fans?

    Last time liverpool played Sevilla they were raped in the europa cup final. Also Spartak away wouldn't be easy. Liverpool struggle against teams like Watford at times this will be ten times harder.

    Sevilla weren't exactly a classier side. Liverpool were raping them in the first half and should have had at least two penalty decisions. Sevilla immediately hit back in the second half and we lost our heads.

    Doing a bit of disservice to Sevilla, they were back to back champions when we faced them in the final.

    That doesn't have any relevance to the game though. If we were given any one of those penalties it would have been a hard way back for them

    Well Tottenham breezed through and topped their group, same with ManU and City. Liverpool could have wrapped up the group on the 5th day against Sevilla but we just can't hold on against them so saved the best until this morning to run riot over Spartak to finish the group stages scoring the most goals by and English team and 2nd most overall.

    Chelsea through finishing 2nd in their group so for the 1st time ever 5 Premier League teams have qualified for the knock out stages.

    Can't happen. In the round of 16 teams can not be drawn against sides from the same league or teams from the same group.

    Also teams that placed 1st in there group can only be drawn against teams that came 2nd.

    Manchester United finished top of Group A.

    They can could face Bayern Munich, Juventus, Real Madrid, Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk, Porto.

    Chelsea finished second in Group C

    They could face Barcelona, Paris St-Germain or Besiktas.

    Liverpool finished top of Group E.

    They could face Bayern Munich, Juventus, Basel, Real Madrid, Shakhtar Donetsk, Porto.

    Manchester City finished top of Group F.

    They could face Bayern Munich, Juventus, Basel, Real Madrid, Sevilla, Porto.

    Tottenham finished top of Group H

    They could face Bayern Munich, Juventus, Basel, Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk, Porto.

    Some interesting match up there, I like Spurs match up with Juve. We'll have Wanyama, Anderweireld and Lamela all match fit by then, something we've missed all season.

    Last leg at Wembley too gives us an advantage. These are the teams you expect to play in the last 16.

    Spurs are still in it? But we were told they were f**ked after the group draw.

    We have a good record against Porto but they are always a dangerous side.

    Gives me confidence though they couldn't even topple Besiktas to win their group.

    Chelsea/Barca and Real/PSG are the big ones, 2 contenders guaranteed to bite the dust in the round of 16
