Chelsea are out of action this week as the players attend their international duties for the first time this season, and UEFA have used the time to seed this year's Champions League group stages. 

There are a total of 16 teams including the likes of Arsenal, Barcelona and holder's Lyon who are joining the Blues this campaign, but only three will meet them in Group A. 

Who will Chelsea face?

Emma Hayes' side have been placed into a group alongside Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Albania's Vllaznia.
