The 48 teams contesting the Europa League group stages this season, including Arsenal, Everton, AC Milan, Dynamo Kyiv, Zenit St Petersburg, Lyon and Lazio, have all learned their fate after the draw was made in Monaco on Friday lunchtime.

In their first taste of Europe's second club competition since dropping out of the Champions League early in the 1999/00 campaign, Arsenal have been handed Belarus champions BATE, as well as Cologne and Crvena zvezda (otherwise known as Red Star Belgrade).

Wayne Rooney, who lifted the trophy as Manchester United captain last season, has seen his Everton team drawn with Lyon, whose stadium will host the final in May, Atalanta from Serie A and Cypriot club Apollon Limassol in a tough group.

Meanwhile, big spending AC Milan must contend with Austria Vienna, Croatian champions Rijeka and AEK Athens in a reasonably favourable draw.
