Tottenham were handed a favourable draw, with Bulgarian side Ludogorets, LASK from Austria and Royal Antwerp in their group.

In Europe for only the fifth time in their history, Leicester take on Portuguese side Braga, AEK Athens and face a trip to Ukraine to take on Zorya Luhansk.

Celtic have arguably the toughest draw of the British teams. as well as European giants Milan, Celtic will take on Sparta Prague and Lille, while Rangers will face Benfica, Standard Liege and Lech Poznan.

Milan, banned from the competition last season for breaching UEFA's break-even Financial Fair Play rule, scraped through 9-8 on penalties after snatching a last-gasp 2-2 draw with Portuguese side Rio Ave.
