The draw for the 2014/15 Champions League group stage is just hours away, with four English clubs awaiting their fate and it appears Liverpool will get the toughest group of the lot.

The Merseyside club make a long awaited return to the competition after a few seasons in the European wilderness, with Brendan Rodgers’ side in pot 3 which will see them face at least one very strong team in the group stage.

The worst case scenario for Liverpool is a group including Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, with Manchester City able to vouch for having difficult Champions League groups although Manuel Pellegrini’s side are in pot 2 this time around.

Arsenal and Chelsea have better co-efficients and are amongst the big boys in pot 1 along with the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

Borussia Dortmund are in pot 2 despite a series of impressive performances in the Champions League and clubs will want to avoid the German side along with Juventus, PSG and Manchester City.
