THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE group stage draw has been made in Monaco this evening.

Manchester United, returning to the competition after missing out last year, have been grouped with Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven, Russian outfit CSKA Moscow and Bundesliga side Wolfsburg.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will return to the club he won the competition with in 2004 as the Londoners are in Group G along with Porto, Dynamo Kiev and Maccabi Haifa.

Arsenal face the tough task of facing Bayern Munich home and away, while Olympiacos and Dinamo Zagreb make up Group F. With arguably the most difficult group of all the Premier League clubs, Manchester City are up against last year’s finalists Juventus, Europa League winners Sevilla and Borussia Monchengladbach.

Elsewhere, holders Barcelona will meet Bayer Leverkusen, AS Roma and BATE Borisov. Meanwhile, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to take on the team he began his professional career as Paris Saint-Germain are in with Real Madrid, Shakhtar Donetsk and Swedish club Malmo.

The first round of fixtures take place on 15/16 September.
