For the first time in three years, Liverpool will have a keen interest in today’s Champions League group stage draw.

Jurgen Klopp’s side put in an often sparkling performance to beat Hoffenheim 4-2 at Anfield last night, and 6-2 on aggregate.

Emre Can (PR: Em-ray Chan) scored twice, and there were one each for Mohammed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Liverpool are in pot 3 for this afternoon’s draw along with Tottenham.

Chelsea are top seeds, along with the likes of Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

Both Manchester sides are second seeds, as are Barcelona.

Celtic will be among the fourth seeds when the draw is made at 5.
