There could be some intriguing ties. Chelsea, for example, could face Barcelona or PSG from pot two, Napoli from pot three and RB Leipzig from pot four.

The first Champions League group matches take place on September 12 and September 13.

The final takes place at the NSK Olimpiyskyi in Kiev on May 26, 2018.

The draw for the group stages of the Europa League takes place in Monaco on Friday.

Everton will hope to be in the draw alongside Arsenal, who are in an unfamiliar competition, starting a season out of the Champions League for the first time in 20 years.

The Toffees lead Hajduk Split 2-0 ahead of Thursday's second leg in Croatia.
