UEFA Champions League

EPL Teams Make UCL History

The 2017/18 UEFA Champions League group stage concluded on Wednesday night, and the Premier League clubs in the competition made history in the process.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see the Premier League sides who are still in the UEFA Champions League this season.

Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur all qualified for the knockout stage of the tournament, making England the first country to have five teams in the Round of 16, according to Opta Sports.

This season was the first time the English top flight had five representatives in the tournament after the Red Devils lifted the 2016/17 UEFA Europa League title that saw them book their spot in the Champions League despite missing out on the top four in the Premier League – the same happened with La Liga in 2015/16 after Sevilla won the 2014/15 Europa League trophy.

In addition, this campaign was also the first time four Premier League teams ended up winning their respective groups, with Liverpool, City, United and Spurs all finishing first.

Spurs, who were in a group with Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and APOEL, accumulated 16 points in the group stage, more than any other team in the competition.
