Manchester United will join Liverpool and Tottenham in the last-32 of the Europa League - and they could be handed some big-name rivals in next Monday's draw.

United may not be too happy to find themselves thrown into UEFA's second tier competition after their elimination from the Champions League on Tuesday night, but there is a big prize awaiting all three English teams if they can win the Europa League final in Basel, Switzerland next May.

A place in next season's Champions League is up for grabs for the victors in the Europa League and while the competition has often been dismissed by English clubs, that is a winning prize well worth chasing.

United, Liverpool and Spurs cannot be drawn against each other in Monday's draw, as teams from the same nation cannot meet at this stage of the competition.

All three of the English teams will be seeded in the draw, but that may not stop them being paired with big-name rivals in knock-out ties that will be played over two legs.

There are some intriguing draws that could be thrown up, with United facing the prospect of a clash with a Valencia side managed by their former player Gary Neville, as well as a possible clash with Robin van Persie's Fenerbahce.

Meanwhile, Liverpool could be drawn against Klopp's former club Borussia Dortmund in what would be a heavy weight battle.

These are the clubs Manchester United could face in the last-32 of the Champions League: 

Valencia, Sevilla, Villarreal (Spain)

Fiorentina (Italy)

Galatasaray, Fenerbahce (Turkey)

Marseille, Saint-Etienne (France)

Sporting Lisbon (Portugal)

Anderlecht (Belgium)

Sparta Prague (Czech Republic)

Shakhtar Donetsk (Ukraine)

Midtjylland (Denmark) 

Borussia Dortmund, FC Augsburg (Germany)

Sion (Switzerland)

Liverpool can be drawn against all of the same teams, apart from Sion, who they have already faced in the group stages.

Spurs will have the same selection of possible rivals, with the exception of Anderlecht, who were their group stage rivals.

All three of the remaining English teams can meet each other in the latter stages of the Europa League.
