As the English teams kick-start their campaign this time in quest of achieving the continental supremacy, here the complete squad of all the four teams.

Leicester City

Goalkeepers: Kasper Schmeichel, Ben Hamer, Ron-Robert Zieler.

Leicester City make their debut in Europe after winning the English Premier League 2015/16 season. The Foxes have made some quality changes in their squad alongside retaining most of their squad from last season.

Only major setback was midfield marshal N'Golo Kante's departure for Chelsea. Claudio Ranieri will want to at least go past the group stage. Anything more than that would be a bonus for the English champions.


Goalkeepers: Petr Cech, Emiliano Martinez, David Ospina

Defenders: Hector Bellerin, Shkodran Mustafi, Laurent Koscielny, Kieran Gibbs, Nacho Monreal, Mathieu Debuchy, Rob Holding, Gabriel Paulista.

Midfielders: Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla, Franics Coquelin, Mohamed Elneny, Granit Xhaka, Krystian Bielik, Jeff Reine-Adélaïde.

Strikers: Lucas Perez, Olivier Giroud, Yaya Sanogo.

Arsene Wenger had to omit veteran German defender Per Mertesacker due to his injury concern. Mertesacker has been ruled out of action until December, as a result he has not been included in the initial squad.

Otherwise, Arsenal can boast of an extremely strong squad in this elite competition. All the four players who have were bought this summer, Rob Holding, Granit Xhaka, Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez have been included in Wenger's 25 men squad.

Tottenham Hotspur

Goalkeepers: Hugo Lloris, Michel Vorm, Pau.

Defenders: Kyle Walker, Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose, Jan Vertonghen, Ben Davies, Kevin Wimmer, Kieran Trippier.

Midfielders: Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Victor Wanyama, Moussa Sissoko, Georges-Kévin N'Koudou, Mousa Dembele, Tom Carroll.

Strikers: Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min. Vincent Janssen.

Mauricio Pochettino have formed an extremely strong squad as they appear in the UEFA Champions League after six seasons.

Tottenham Hotspur had an impressive stint last season in the English Premier League which saw them finish third.

They in the title race until the very last moment. Unfortunately, they lost their grip in the last few matches and finally finished behind rivals Arsenal.

They are placed in a relatively easy group alonside AS Monaco, CSKA Moscow and Bayer Leverkusen. Spurs are expected to make it beyond the group stages.

Manchester City

Goalkeepers: Claudio Bravo, Willy Caballero.

Defenders: Bacary Sagna, Pablo Zabaleta, Gael Clichy, Aleksandar Kolarov, Nicolas Otamendi, Vincent Kompany, John Stones.

Midfielders: Fernando, Fernandinho, Ilkay Gundogan, David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Jesus Navas, Fabian Delph, Leroy Sane.

Strikers: Sergio Aguero, Nolito, Kelechi Iheanacho

Pep Guardiola shocked the football world as he overlooked star midfielder Yaya Toure in his UEFA Champions League squad.

Also he has included only two goalkeepers, new recruit Claudio Bravo and Argentine custodian Willy Caballero.

Otherwise the Cityzens can boast of an extremely strong squad with the likes of Sergio Aguero, David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne etc.

Guardiola has to face his former club FC Barcelona in the group stage. With such a strong squad we expect the club to provide strong competition to the Catalan giants.
