Five English teams in Europe's last 16 - here's what could happen next

City A.M. Thursday, 7 December 2017
Five English teams in Europe's last 16 - here's what could happen nextFor the first time in history, there will be five teams from a single country in the last 16 of the Champions League after Premier League sides reversed years of underwhelming results by collectively booking their place in the knock-out rounds.

Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham all progressed as winners of their group, while Chelsea finished second behind Roma in Group C.

That the means the Blues can only face Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona or Besiktas in the next round. Their four domestic rivals are not eligible as teams can only face a domestic rival in the quarter-finals and beyond. 

Likewise, Roma are out of the question as teams cannot meet group stage opposition again until the last eight.

Although Chelsea face a daunting task - and Turkish champions Besiktas' record at home and in Europe suggests they will be no soft touch either - even the four group winners could still find themselves facing off against a European heavyweight in the next round.

Reigning champions Real Madrid, 2013 champions Bayern Munich, 2015 and 2017 runners-up Juventus are all in Pot 2 having failed to win their groups.

The draw takes place on *Monday 11 December at 11am* at Uefa's headquarters in Switzerland.
