Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea all progressed from the group stage, making England the first country to have so many sides through to the knockout phase.

That quintet suffered just three defeats between them in the group stage and scored 80 goals in total, while Chelsea – the reigning English champions – were the only ones not to win their group.

Teams from the same country will be kept apart in the draw, which will take place from noon (1100 GMT) at UEFA's Nyon headquarters, as will the group winners and runners-up. Teams who were in the same group cannot meet again at this stage either.

What time is the draw?

The Champions League draw will be held from 4.30 pm on Monday, while the Europa League draw will be at 5.30 pm on the same day.

Can I watch it live?

The draw will be broadcast live on SONY TEN 2 and SONY TEN 2 HD. The draw will also be streamed live on UEFA.com.

Where is the draw being held?

The draw is being held at the House of European Football in Nyon, Switzerland.
