Liverpool vs Sevilla – Liverpool win

Sevilla won 3-0 at the weekend but they are not quite the force they have been in previous seasons.

Nolito has gone there, Jesus Navas has gone back and they've also got threats in Wissam Ben Yedder and Luis Muriel.

However, the European nights are back at Liverpool without the strain of the play-offs so the magic back should be back. Anfield and Celtic Park are my two favourites grounds on a European night.

It really is a huge advantage for them and I can see them making a winning start with Sadio Mane making amends for his controversial sending off at Manchester City at the weekend.

Tottenham vs Borussia Dortmund – Dortmund win

Tottenham were very good at the weekend but it's back to Wembley, which also provides them with the chance to make the leap that they need.

Dortmund are a very difficult side to face with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang up front and a strong midfield, but you can get at their defence so there should be some joy for Harry Kane.

However, I can see there being more struggles for Spurs and I think they might well have to come from behind to get something from this game.

Feyenoord vs Manchester City – Manchester City win

We saw how breathtaking they can be at the weekend and they look more assured this season. But we don't know how long Vincent Kompany is out for.

Pep Guardiola might look at another defender in January and, with the great draws they've got, I think both Manchester sides are in the mix at the business end of this competition.

I think we'll get a real statement from City here. If John Stones can grow into Guardiola's system then they could go all the way with their undoubted attacking talent. I can see them being the highest scoring side in Europe this season.

I've played in Rotterdam and it's quite volatile, a bit like Marseille in that sense, but I think Feyenoord will be the ones scared.
