Europa League draw live as Man Utd, Arsenal and Spurs gear up for last-16 fate
Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham and Rangers will discover their fate in the last-16 of the Europa League on Friday morning with the draw set to take place out in Switzerland.
Only four British teams remain in the competition following Leicester’s last-32 exit at the hands of Slavia Prague on Thursday night.
Brendan Rodgers’ men were first held to a 0-0 draw in the first leg out in Prague last week, but a subsequent 2-0 defeat at home to the Czech outfit ensured they crashed out at the first knockout hurdle.
Their UK colleagues enjoyed better fortunes in the last-32; United, Spurs and Rangers cruised past Real Sociedad, Wolfsberg and Royal Antwerp respectively, while Arsenal came from behind to record a famous 4-3 aggregate win over Benfica.
They will join Dynamo Kiev, AC Milan, Slavia, Villarreal, Roma, Dinamo Zagreb, Young Boys, Molde, Granada, Shakhtar Donetsk, Ajax and Olympiakos in Friday’s last-16 draw.

In the previous round, clubs were split into two pots of seeded and non-seeded teams depending on whether they finished as group winners or obtained the best Champions League records.
However, there is no seeding or country protection in the last-16 stage, which means we could see two Premier League rivals lock horns.
Who’s in the draw?
Here is the full list of teams in this morning’s draw for the last-16:
