Four English sides have been confirmed as top seeds for next Monday's Champions League last 16 draw.

With European heavyweights like Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Juventus in pot two, there are guaranteed to be some blockbuster clashes in the second round.

Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Spurs all topped their groups, while Chelsea came second. Teams from the same country cannot play each other in the last 16, which limits who Chelsea can play in first knockout stage.

The other group winners were PSG, Barcelona, Besiktas and Roma while Sevilla, Basel, Juventus, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Porto and Shakhtar Donetsk also finished as runners up.

Here is who each English side could draw in the last 16 on December 11:

Manchester United: Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Juventus, Sevilla, Porto or Shakhtar Donetsk.

Manchester City: Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Juventus, Basel, Sevilla or Porto.

Liverpool: Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Juventus, Basel, Porto or Shaktar Donetsk.

Spurs: Bayern Munich, Basel, Juventus, Sevilla, Porto or Shaktar Donetsk.

Chelsea: PSG, Barcelona, Besiktas.
