With Liverpool crashing out of the Champions League after the group stage, three teams are left in this year's tournament: Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City.

The draw took place yesterday and Simon Rice has looked at each of the fixtures the Premier League teams will be preparing for ahead of the first leg in in February.

Chelsea will count themselves unlucky to be facing PSG in the last 16 after cruising through the group stage and being the only English team to top their group table. Now, instead of facing Shakhtar Donestsk or Bayer Leverkusen - two much easier teams - they face the French side PSG with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Edison Cavani and Chelsea old boy David Luiz, who joined the team in the summer.

Still, the Blues overcame PSG in the quarter-finals last year thanks to a late Demba Ba goal at Stamford Bridge. However, odds on Chelsea winning the title dramatically dropped after yesterday's draw.

First Leg: Tuesday 17 February

Second Leg: Wednesday 11 March
