The draw means Manchester United and Arsenal could play each other in the final, which will take place in Gdansk, Poland on 26 May.

The Gunners were involved in the last all-English Europa League final against Chelsea in 2019, with the Blues winning 4-1 in Baku.

Granada are playing in Europe for the first time and their last-eight tie against Manchester United will be their first meeting with English opposition.

The Red Devils are one of only two previous winners left in the competition along with 1992 champions Ajax, who United beat in the 2017 final.

Slavia Prague meanwhile have been drawn against a British club for the third time this season having beaten Leicester and Rangers in the previous rounds.

Croatian champions Dinamo Zagreb reached this stage after a remarkable 3-2 aggregate victory against Tottenham.

12:56I went to see Ajax vs Roma in the Champs League in Amsterdam in 2002. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Jari Litmanen scored for Ajax, Gabriel Batistuta scored for Roma. Pep Guardiola was an unused substitute for Roma.354J

13:04If there was a team you’d asked me to pick for United to play before the draw it would have been Granada, not because they might be perceived to be the weakest side but for the fact it’s the name of the local ITV station in Manchester. However as Fergie used to say “No Complacency”, we still have to beat them.242M

13:28Many of us are football fans and, from a mildly patriotic leaning, are pleased to see the two English teams kept apart, in the hope of an all-English final but we’re happy to see good football matches.

Others are simply tribal and don’t like to see certain teams progress so their childish comments reflect this.

12:54Good draw for United although any one can beat anyone at this stage so we shouldnt be too over confident.

If we get past Granada I hope we get Ajax in the Semi’s.122B

13:11Dissappointed Man U got the easier draw, but, tbh, they probably had the hardest draw in the last round so can’t really begrudge them that.
Hoping Arsenal take on Emery in the Semi’s too (if we play well enough to get that far)!
Looking good for an all English final again.
Would be lovely to take Ole’s last chance at a trophy this year after his snidey remarks the other day!126L
