Five British teams are in the draw for the group stages of the UEFA Champions League, which will take place in Monaco this afternoon and is live on Sky Sports News from 4pm.

Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are joined by Arsenal and Celtic, who came through the final qualifying round this week.

The Hoops overturned a 2-0 first-leg deficit to defeat Shakhter Karagandy with three goals at Celtic Park on Wednesday night, with James Forrest scoring the winner in injury time.

Celtic's qualification this week, along with AC Milan and Steaua Bucharest, means there will be 14 previous winners of Europe's elite tournament involved in this season's Champions League.
