Premier League sides Arsenal and Manchester City have been handed a tough start to the 2014/15 Champions League with ties in Germany. Arsenal travel to Borussia Dortmund in Group D, while Manchester City head to Bayern Munich in Group E.

Liverpool, back in the Europe's elite club competition for the first time since 2010, begin with an easier task - the Bulgarians Ludogorets Razgrad at Anfield. Ludogorets Razgrad , of course, qualified to the group stage after their heroic defender Cosmin Moti saved two penalties in the shoot-out win over Steaua Bucharest on Tuesday night.

Chelsea face another Bundesliga side, Schalke 04, at Stamford Bridge.
