A look at Arsenal, Chelsea and Man City’s European opponents

| 07.02.2016

Arsenal, Chelsea Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool have varying league form, but will beginning to turn their heads towards Europe.

The Champions League and the Europa League return at the end of the month and all those sides will be in action.

Here’s how English club’s European foes are faring:


Facing the Catalan giants was always going to be a tough task for Arsenal, but they will be welcoming a hugely in-form Barca to the Emirates.

Lionel Messi and company have won 12 of their last 13 games across all competitions, with Luis Enrique’s men not tasting defeat since the start of October.

Gary Neville will be able to warn Arsene Wenger about the tough task he faces, with his Valencia side on the end of a 7-0 drubbing against Barca in the Copa del Rey.

Paris Saint-German

The Ligue 1 leaders will be able to go into their Champions League tie with Chelsea knowing they already have the league pretty much wrapped up.

Laurent Blanc’s men are 24 points clear at the top of the French top-flight and have emerged victorious in 18 of their last 19 games across all competitions.

PSG have only lost once all season, to Real Madrid, and will be high on confidence when they head to Stamford Bridge.

Dynamo Kiev

Man City had easily the most straightforward draw of all the English teams in the Champions League, but the Ukrainians are currently in a rich vein of form.

Dynamo have won six in a row and will be extra fresh when they welcome the Citizens as they don’t have a game between now and then.

Europa Opponents

In contrast to those in the Champions League, Man Utd, Liverpool and Spurs will be facing teams out of form.

Midtjylland are winless in six of their last nine matches, while Augsburg have only won one in four and Fiorentina have lost two in five.
