The Champions League is back and ready to go again with new winners, long-awaited returns and some fresh faces in the draw. There's Manchester City and the treble-winning powerhouse ready to go again, a newer, Karim Benzema-less Real Madrid as well as Bayern Munich with Harry Kane.
There's Paris Saint-Germain without two pillars of their triad of attacking inefficiency, Barcelona up and at 'em after last year's failure and even Napoli hoping to go a step further but looking a bit of a mess. At the other end of the spectrum, there's Crvena Zvezda, the competition's new outlying minnows.
Union Berlin promise to be one of the better stories of the whole thing and Antwerp in the mix. Then there's Arsenal. Not quite newcomers but different enough from 2016 to be worth a good refresh in the minds of those who haven't come across this exciting wave of Mikel Arteta-led brilliance.

There's history and consistency to Arsenal's Champions League storybut this is a different team with a different atmosphere around it. That's enough talking though, it's time to get down to business.
Coming off the back of a five-game unbeaten run in the league, beating Manchester United before the international break and then breaking the Goodison Park hoodoo on Sunday against Everton, Arsenal are in good touch. They couldn't have had a much better way to prepare for hosting Peter Bosz's PSV Eindhoven.
Outside of an injury scare to Gabriel Martinelli, Arteta's side are in positive nick and have found a way to get results even when not at their best. Now they are back in the big time.
