Europa League draw live stream: How to watch as Manchester United and Arsenal learn their fate

Manchester United and Arsenal will learn their Europa League quarter-final fate as the draw takes place in Switzerland this afternoon.

Paul Pogba’s standout performance saw United triumph over AC Milan in a hard-fought round of 16 tie, which also saw the breakout goal of Amad Diallo’s career. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still targeting his first trophy as head coach and is growing in confidence after another hurdle was conquered. “We’ve come through a very difficult tie against a fantastic club and we’ve overcome some difficulties,” he said. “You give yourself a chance to win a game of football when you keep a clean sheet. Dean Henderson made a fantastic save towards the end and I’m very pleased with everyone’s defending.

“There are many good teams left but you’ve got to be spot on. It’s a cup competition and anything can happen. But we are through and we feel confident.”

Meanwhile, Arsenal survived a scare against 10-man Olympiacos, advancing on aggregate despite Youssef El-Arabi’s strike, however, Mikel Arteta warned that his side must significantly improve to stand any chance of winning the tournament. Asked if a similar performance would see Arsenal knocked out, Arteta said: “Yes, because what we have to do, the way we are set up, the organisation we have and the way we want to play, we have to be much more efficient, much more simple, much more cohesive as a team. Without that structure, you are exposed when you lose the ball in really dangerous areas without any opposition.”

Tottenham and Rangers will not feature the draw, though, after both crashing out under dramatic circumstances. Spurs squandered a two-goal lead from the first leg against Dinamo Zagreb, as Mislav Orsic completed his hat-trick in extra-time. Jose Mourinho questioned the commitment of his players afterwards while captain Hugo Lloris branded their performance a “disgrace”.

When and where is the draw?

The draw is on Friday 19 March at the House of European Football in Nyon, Switzerland and starts at 12pm GMT.

How will the draw work?

So the free draw will decide the quarter-finals, before each tie is numbered 1–4 to create a path to the semi-finals.

Then there will be a third draw, to decide who will be the ‘home’ side in the final for administrative reasons.

Any restrictions, for broadcast or logistical reasons, will be announced ahead of the draw.

When will the quarter-final and semi-final ties take place?
