Manchester United will be participating in the 2015-16 UEFA Champions League season, and the Red Devils have been drawn alongside PSV Eindhoven, VfL Wolfsburg and CSKA Moscow.
Man United have escaped a horror draw, while there’s no doubt the trio have the quality to cause the Premier League side some problems.
Chelsea has been placed in Group G with Porto, Dynamo Kyiv and Maccabi Tel-Aviv.
Arsenal and Manchester City were not as fortunate, with the Gunners facing Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.
Meanwhile, Man City takes on last year’s runners-up Juventus, as well as Sevilla and Borussia Monchengladbach.
Despite the Red Devils’ seemingly easy road, not everybody thinks the Red Devils’ advancement into the second round is a foregone conclusion.
Here are some expected and unexpected reactions to the Red Devils’ group placement from Twitter.
Man United won’t even get out of their group

Man United’s group is tougher than it actually looks. They can be pleased, but picking up Wolfsburg in pot 4 has complicated things a little — Home of Fußball (@ExcitableExpert) August 27, 2015
Chelsea and Man united just would get an easy group wouldn’t they

If man united don’t make it out of their group stage Van Gaal should quit at life
