Champions League last-16 draw: Chelsea, Man Utd, Liverpool and PSG discover fate

Manchester United will face Paris Saint-Germain in the last-16 of the Champions League while holders Chelsea have been drawn to face Lille.

Chelsea were crowned Champions League winners in May when they beat Premier League rivals Manchester City 1-0 in the 2020-21 final.

Thomas Tuchel’s side only finished second in their 2021-22 group but have been handed a favourable draw, avoiding the likes of Bayern Munich and Real Madrid and facing a last-16 clash with French side Lille.

Ralf Rangnick’s Man United take on PSG in the pick of the Champions League fixtures, with long-time rivals Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi set to face off yet again.

Last season’s runners-up and current Premier League leaders Manchester City meet Europa League winners Villarreal, while Liverpool will fancy their chances against Red Bull Salzburg.
