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.

Having made the group stage tough for themselves, Manchester City face another possible uphill battle against Barcelona. City only had two points from their opening four matches of the group games, yet they managed to impressively beat Bayern Munich and Roma to progress.

They faced Barcelona at this stage last season, with the Spaniards easily overcoming the English champions 4-1 over two legs. Barcelona are not the dominant side they once were when they won the Champions League in 2009 and 2011, but they do now have Luis Suarez in their squad, and every English team knows how much of a force he can be.

First Leg: Tuesday 24 February

Second Leg: Wednesday 18 March
