You are wrong.

Where did you get that info from?

POT A will be the first 2 teams from EPL SPL Bundesliga and Italian league. Thats 8 teams for 8 groups there for you who get automatic qualification.

POT B wil be the 3rd and 4th teams in those respective leagues but inorder to get there they need to win their qualifiers first. Hence. Arsenal and Pool inclusion is uncertain atm.

POT C and D will be other teams who would make numbers. Dunno on what basis they select them.

No, you are wrong.

Champions League pot placing is based on seeding points, which are listed next to the teams.

These 'points' are based on the clubs record in the UCL over the last 5 years.

Then how do you explain Barcelona and Liverpool in the same group 2 seasons back?

And what happends when Liverpool and Arsenal fail to qualify. That leaves 2 empty spots there.
