Europa League draw, round of 32: Arsenal to face Ostersund, Celtic up against Zenit

Arsenal will face Ostersund and their English manager Graham Potter in the last 32 of the Europa League. Monday's draw paired Arsene Wenger's men with the Swedish side, who former York defender Potter has taken from the fourth division to the top-ranked Allsvenskan in six years. The 42-year-old has earned comparisons with Roy Hodgson - who himself managed in Scandinavia in his formative years - and this will be his first clash against English opposition. The draw also saw Celtic come out against Zenit St Petersburg. 3 - Graham Potter has won three of his six Europa League games as a manager (excl qualifiers); the only English managers to have won more in the competition are Roy Hodgson (10/21), Steve McClaren (6/18) and Alan Pardew (4/12).

Arsenal and Celtic are the only British sides left in the draw, which is given a bit of added glamour by the arrival of Champions League drop-outs Atletico Madrid, Napoli and Borussia Dortmund.  The matches will be played in mid to late February, by which time Arsenal could be lagging in the top four race and decide to play their 'A' team for Europa League games if winning the competition looks like their most likely route to Champions League qualification. Manchester United did something similar last season of course.    Atletico Madrid are one of the big names to have dropped into the Europa League Credit: REUTERS 11:12AM Preview What is it? This is the draw for the last-32 stage of the Europa League. When is it? The draw will take place on Monday, December 11, 2017. What time is kick-off? The balls will be drawn at 12pm (GMT) in Nyon, Switzerland. You can follow all the action right here when this page turns into our live blog. Which British teams are involved? Arsenal and Everton were the only two British sides to contest the Europa League group stage, with the former advancing as group winners and the Merseyside club failing to progress. Arsenal will be one of the seeded sides in Monday's draw, while Celtic - who dropped into the competition after failing to progress from their Champions League group - are unseeded.

The group winners and four best third-placed teams in the Champions League will be drawn against the 12 group runners-up and the remaining third-placed Champions League sides. The seeded teams will be at home in the second leg. No team can play a club from their Europa League group or a side from the same country. Additionally, teams from Russia and Ukraine cannot be drawn together. Games will be played in principle on Thursdays 15 and 22 February with the exact schedule released after the draw.

Europa League draw, round of 32: Arsenal to face Ostersund, Celtic up against Zenit

Arsenal will face Ostersund and their English manager Graham Potter in the last 32 of the Europa League. Monday's draw paired Arsene Wenger's men with the Swedish side, who former York defender Potter has taken from the fourth division to the top-ranked Allsvenskan in six years. The 42-year-old has earned comparisons with Roy Hodgson - who himself managed in Scandinavia in his formative years - and this will be his first clash against English opposition. The draw also saw Celtic come out against Zenit St Petersburg. 3 - Graham Potter has won three of his six Europa League games as a manager (excl qualifiers); the only English managers to have won more in the competition are Roy Hodgson (10/21), Steve McClaren (6/18) and Alan Pardew (4/12).

Pedro Pinto, UEFA's director of communications, welcomes the assembled group in one of those generic vaguely American sounding continental European accents that is compulsory for Uefa staff.  11:58AM All to play for Owen Hargreaves says of Arsenal: "Surely the Europa League must be a priority. They're not going to win the league and the top four is by no means a priority." Jermaine Jenas adds that he expects Arsenal to start prioritising the competition in the second half of the season.  11:40AM Who could face who? In microscopic detail, below are all the possible permutations.  The main things to know are that the worst possible draw for Arsenal would be Napoli, Borussia Dortmund or Real Sociedad. They could also face Celtic, but can't be drawn against fellow top seeds Atletico Madrid.  Second seeds Celtic meanwhile could draw Atletico, as well as other major European sides like AC Milan and Athletic Bilbao.  Here the #draw#probabilities for the round of 32 of the #EuropaLeague. Not many constraints, so probabilities don't vary much: from 5.5% (Celtic-Sporting, the only 2 teams who can play 16 opponents) to 8.8% (some matches of Real Soc & Spartak M, the 2 most constrained teams) pic.twitter.com/CoGLyZcM7A— Julien Guyon (@julienguyon1977) December 11, 2017 11:29AM Greetings Hi everyone, the Champions League draw is done and dusted - reaction to that can be found here - so attention moves to the Europa League. Arsenal and Celtic are the only British sides left in the draw, which is given a bit of added glamour by the arrival of Champions League drop-outs Atletico Madrid, Napoli and Borussia Dortmund.  The matches will be played in mid to late February, by which time Arsenal could be lagging in the top four race and decide to play their 'A' team for Europa League games if winning the competition looks like their most likely route to Champions League qualification. Manchester United did something similar last season of course.    Atletico Madrid are one of the big names to have dropped into the Europa League Credit: REUTERS 11:12AM Preview What is it? This is the draw for the last-32 stage of the Europa League. When is it? The draw will take place on Monday, December 11, 2017. What time is kick-off? The balls will be drawn at 12pm (GMT) in Nyon, Switzerland. You can follow all the action right here when this page turns into our live blog. Which British teams are involved? Arsenal and Everton were the only two British sides to contest the Europa League group stage, with the former advancing as group winners and the Merseyside club failing to progress. Arsenal will be one of the seeded sides in Monday's draw, while Celtic - who dropped into the competition after failing to progress from their Champions League group - are unseeded.
