Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea will all discover their opponents for the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League on Monday.
City have been drawn against Borussia Monchengladbach and avoided many of the tougher-looking ties.
It was a weekend which saw all three clubs drop points after their midweek European exploits, with City and Liverpool both drawing whilst Chelsea were beaten 1-0 by Everton.
Despite the lack of European football until mid-February when the Champions League restarts, the fixture list doesn’t become any more forgiving in the coming weeks as English clubs gear up for the hectic Christmas fixture pile-up and the start of the FA Cup.
Later down the line, those European fixtures could have a significant bearing on Manchester City’s hopes of regaining the Premier League title.
Out of the three clubs remaining English clubs in the Champions League, it’s Chelsea who have the nicest-looking fixture list, when comparing who each side could face after their European matches later in the season.
