Chelsea, Arsenal & Celtic Champions League preview

Three British teams compete in tonight's Champions League fixtures with different; Chelsea for position, Arsenal for qualification and Celtic for pride. We provide a preview to the games.

Following from the Manchester clubs' impressive victories yesterday evening, another three British teams will play their final Champions League group game of the season.

Chelsea, Arsenal and Celtic will all participate. All three find themselves in very different positions but all have their own incentives as to why a victory is vital.

Below, we preview their fixtures for tonight:

Chelsea v Steaua Bucharest 

The Blues, despite being beaten twice in five group games, have already qualified but need a win to guarantee top spot of Group E. Manager Jose Mourinho is expected to make a few changes to the side that lost against Stoke City at the weekend and will reintroduce Ashley Cole into the starting XI. The West London club's Romanian opponents for tonight sit bottom of the group - therefore Chelsea are expected to win this fixture with ease.

Napoli v Arsenal

The Gunners travel to Italy needing a draw to guarantee a spot in the next round. It is almost a certainty, however, that Napoli need to beat Arsenal by at least three goals as Borussia Dortmund will beat Group F whipping boys Marseille, and the two teams are on level points. Thus, a thrilling spectacle lay before us. Wenger claims his team will play to win and not be conservative at all. Expect this one to take many twists and turns - make sure you watch it!

Barcelona v Celtic

Celtic's fate is already sealed in terms of progress - having picked up only three point in the tournament so far, they will finish bottom of Group H. They are, therefore, playing for pride and a chance of making history. There is a possibility that Barcelona may field a weakened team as they are missing some key players. Despite this and the fact that the Celtic spirit will be as strong as ever, we can see only one outcome to this fixture. Then again, stranger things have happened...
