Manchester United have been drawn against La Liga leaders Real Sociedad in the UEFA Europa League knockout stages.

Elsewhere, standout ties include struggling Arsenal against Portuguese club Benfica, Lille against Ajax, and Olympiacos versus PSV.

The first leg will be played on 18 February, with the final touted for 26 May at the Gdańsk City Stadium in Poland.
