The UEFA Champions League draw was a mixed bag for Premier League clubs, with Arsenal getting one of the toughest set-ups for a seeded team in Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich.

Manchester City will match-up with Monaco, while Leicester City earns two nights with Sevilla.

Elsewhere, Barcelona will be the opponent for Unai Emery’s first run through the knockout rounds with Paris Saint-Germain, as Group A sides definitely felt the brunt of the draw.
