Here is the live coverage to the UEFA Champions League draw for 2020/21 season. It has been a quick turnaround for Uefa given last season’s final happened just over a month ago, with Bayern Munich beating PSG in Lisbon after the finals were shifted into a mini-tournament in Portugal following the coronavirus pandemic.
As for this season, the Premier League’s four representatives are Liverpool, Man City, Manchester United and Chelsea – and Uefa appears to be confident that a full competition format can be squeezed into the 2020/21 season.
With the Uefa ceremony underway in Nyon, follow the draw LIVE as it happens…
Another fun team to face for Liverpool. We can expect some thrilling clashes in this group.
Oof. That’s rough for Man United against two semi-finalists. Group of death!
The debutants go into Chelsea’s group! That’s going to be a tough away trip to Russia in the winter months for Lampard’s side.
“It’s obviously really nice because you play against the best in the world. I want to compete to win, be the best I can be. This player award is really nice.
“I would say my mind [is my best attribute]. I try to be ahead of the game and see it, help my team creating opportunities, finding space to exploit. I think I’m pretty good at that!”

“Amazing. A big dream came through. For me, [the montage] it was the first time when I saw the videos and it’s still amazing. We had a lot of special moment, a good game against Tottenham, two really good games against Chelsea and of course against Barcelona. The best moment was lifting that trophy, it was so special.”
