Clubs have updated their Champions League squads ahead of the knock-out rounds.

The Champions League last-16 first-leg ties will take place later this month, with the second legs coming in March.

Chelsea take on Barcelona in one of the most intriguing matches, and the Premier League champions have added three players to their squad.

Ross Barkley, Olivier Giroud and Emerson Palmieri, all January signings, have been drafted in, replacing Jake Clarke-Salter, Michy Batshuayi, Kenedy and Charly Musonda.

Tottenham clash with Juventus in another eye-catching tie, with Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura added to their squad in place of Juan Foyth and Georges-Kevin Nkoudou. Mauricio Pochettino has already explained how difficult a decision that was.

Liverpool face Porto in the last-16, with Nathaniel Clyne, Danny Ings and Virgil van Dijk added to their squad. Out go Philippe Coutinho, Jon Flanagan, Marko Grujić and Daniel Sturridge.

Manchester City (Aymeric Laporte and Oleksandr Zinchenko in; Jacob Davenport, Eliaquim Mangala and Charlie Oliver out) take on Basel, while Manchester United (Alexis Sanchez in; Henrikh Mkhitaryan and James Wilson out) will battle Sevilla.

Arsenal are in the Europa League. Haha.
