Manchester United, Wolves and Rangers are all in the pot for the Europa League last-16 draw.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side made the cut in emphatic fashion with a 5-0 victory over Club Brugge at Old Trafford.

Wolves lost to Espanyol 3-2 on Thursday evening but progressed 6-3 on aggregate.

Rangers beat Braga 1-0 on Wednesday evening to secure a 4-2 victory over the Portuguese side on aggregate.

Meanwhile, Arsenal missed out on a place in the last-16 after Olympiacos’ late goal in extra time at the Emirates Stadium knocked Mikel Arteta’s side out of the competition.
