Tottenham will most likely be placed in pot three, while their north London rivals Arsenal will be nestled in pot two.

The Champions League 2016/17 will have a fourth English team if Pep Guardiola manages to lead Manchester City to a win in the qualifying match.

Pot four could have the likes of Fenerbahce, Monaco, PSV Eindhoven and AS Roma depending on the results. The final of the next edition of the UCL will be played at the Millennium Stadium in Wales.
