Cape Town - Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti believes the Champions League will be tougher than last season due to Manchester United, Chelsea, and Liverpool joining.

Each club stands a chance of facing one of five teams, as they have been split into seeded and unseeded.

Previous year saw Spurs crash out in the group phase, Arsenal and City eliminated at the first knockout round and Leicester City reach the quarter-finals but Ancelotti expects a stronger showing for the England contingent next term.

The Premier League effort has been tame in recent seasons, Leicester reaching the quarter-final last term before bowing out to Atletico Madrid.

Will Klopp's system help Liverpool win trophies this season? "They played really well", the Italian said at a press conference.

Former Liverpool striker Fernando Torres says the Reds are back where they belong, as they push for Champions League qualification this month.

Both the Scottish champions and last season's fourth-placed side in the Premier League are seeded for the draw, however each club will go through a different route.

Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham have already booked their place to the group stage, while Liverpool could be set to joint them if they can make it through the playoff.
