    How did Man Utd get here?

    Manchester United couldn't qualify automatically for the Europa League Last 16, like Arsenal did, after finishing second in Group E.

    United finished below Real Sociedad even though they picked up the same points, but the Spanish side went through on goal difference.

    The Red Devils eliminated Omonia and Sheriff, who qualified for the Europa Conference League play-offs.

    United won five out of six Europa League matches and lost once to Sociedad

    Who could Man Utd get?

    Manchester United are facing a nightmare draw in the Europa League play-offs.

    United could be drawn with Barcelona or Juventus, who finished third in their respective Champions League groups.

    The Red Devils could also get Ajax, Red Bull Salzburg, Sevilla, Bayer Leverkusen, Sporting Lisbon and Shakhtar Donetsk.

    Erik ten Hag's men, though, still pose among the favourites to win the Europa League this season
