Winners of the competition in 2017, United are back in the Europa League after failing to qualify for the Champions League last season. In their final tournament appearance of 2020/21, they reached the final under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but lost to Villarreal on penalties in Gdasnk.

As for the Gunners’ opponents, Dutch PSV, managed by former Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy, were knocked out by Rangers in the Champions League play-offs.

Van Nistelrooy was involved in several violent clashes with Arsenal during his playing career, including with former Gunners defender Martin Keown when the club’s rivalry with Manchester United was at its peak.

The Europa League draw was followed by the Conference League draw, where West Ham were placed in a group with Romanian side FCSB, Belgium’s Anderlecht and Denmark’s Silkeborg.
