10.50am: We have around 15 minutes until the draw gets underway but there has been a dark cloud cast over this morning’s proceedings as ex-Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain manager Gerard Houllier has sadly died.
The Frenchman is being honour by Steve McManaman and Owen Hargreaves in the BT Sport studio.
10.30am: Good morning and welcome to Express Sport’s live coverage of the Champions League draw.
The three English clubs won their group so they must face a runners-up in the next round. They can not be drawn against a team from their group.
Group runners-up are Atletico Madrid, Borussia Monchengladbach, FC Porto, Atalanta, Sevilla, Lazio, Barcelona and RB Leipzig.
That means Liverpool cannot face Atalanta, Chelsea will not meet Sevilla and Manchester City will not be drawn with Porto.
How will the draw work?
The draw will follow a similar pattern to previous seasons.
Group winners will be drawn against group runners-up, with the group winners playing away from home in the first leg.
No team can play against a club from their own country, or the same group that they qualified from
Matches are to be played on February 16/17/23/24, with second legs on March 9/10/16/17.
