Premier League giants Manchester United, coached by Jose Mourinho, have been drawn in a tough group in Europa League 2016-17. The Red Devils have been grouped alongside Turkish side Fenerbahce, Dutch side Feyenoord and Ukraine side Zoyra in the competition.

The UEFA Europa League draw took place on Friday in Monaco.

The 20-time English league champions were the first team to be picked during the Europa League draw and thus they automatically made it to Group A. United featured in Pot 1, alongside heavyweight clubs like Inter Milan, AFC Ajax and FC Schalke. 

Mourinho's side are being tipped as one of the teams to go all the way this time around primarily owing to the fact that so many star players have been roped in by the side this season.

The likes of Paul Pogba to Zlatan Ibrahimovic are big names in football at the moment and their presence, coupled with some great techincal flair and even greater team chemistry, is expected to take United back to their glory days.

The Europa League 2016-17 final takes place at the Friends Arena in Solna, Sweden, and this could co-incidentally turn out as the perfect motivation for Sweden football legend Ibrahimovic to perform at the best of his abilities and make a name for himself once again in his hometown.

Italian giants Inter Milan, meanwhile, have been drawn alongside the other Premier League side in the competition, Southampton FC, in Group K.
