The Europa League last 32 draw has taken place, with five British sides all in the mix ahead of the knockout stages.

Arsenal may be struggling badly domestically but they cruised into the next round with a perfect record in their group, bagging six wins from six matches.

Rangers were almost as impressive, with Steven Gerrard’s side unbeaten as they outgunned Benfica to finish at the summit of Group D.

And both Leicester and Tottenham also topped their groups to ensure a seeded spot in the draw for the last 32, while Manchester United will hope for a favourable clash after being dumped out of the Champions League.

There are plenty of European giants to be wary of going forward, including AC Milan, Ajax, Napoli and Roma.

The seeded teams are all at home in the second leg of the ties, while no team could play a club from their Europa League group or a side from their own association.

UEFA also made the decision that no teams from Russia and Ukraine could be drawn together in the last 32, where the first legs will be played on February 18 and the reverse fixtures will take place on February 25.

Paddy Power have all the latest Europa League odds in our bang-up-to-date market, and it is Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham side who are favourites to triumph – bagging what would be their first piece of silverware since the 2008 Carling Cup – after being handed a favourable fixture against Austrian minnows Wolfsberger AC.
