This season’s Europa League group stage is set to burst back into life.
Arsenal were beaten by Chelsea in last year’s final and the Gunners are joined by European giants such as Manchester United, Sevilla, Lazio and Roma this term.
All the teams in the pots for the draw will be dreaming of reaching May’s Gdansk finale.
But first they must negotiate the tricky task of the group stage.
