Who could Arsenal and Man Utd get in the Europa League draw?
Arsenal, runners-up in last year’s Europa League, and 2017 winners Manchester United will both be top seeds in the draw.
Their full list of opponents is yet to be determined as 21 Europa League playoff winners and six losers from the Champions League playoff round will be added to the hat ahead of the draw.
However, there are already a few potentially tricky pairings lurking in the shape of 2003 winners CSKA Moscow, German giants Wolfsburg and Borussia Monchengladbach, and Serie A side Lazio.
