Tottenham have been placed in the same Europa League group as Besiktas and Partizan Belgrade while Everton are in a very tough group that contains Lille, Krasnodar and Wolfsburg.

Celtic have Salzburg, Romanian side FC Astra and Dinamo Zagreb in their Europa League group, while Greek team Asteras and Partizan Belgrade are also in Spurs' group. Everton also have two games against Russian outfit Krasnodar to look forward to.

Besiktas finished third in the Super Lig last term, 12 points adrift of champions Fenerbahce and are managed by the former Croatia coach Slaven Bilic.

They were narrowly beaten by Arsenal in the Champions League play-off earlier this month after knocking out Dutch side Feyenoord 5-2 on aggregate in the third qualifying round.

Spurs, who beat AEL Limassol to clinch their place in the group stage, are 1/3 to finish in the top six of the Premier League this season. As well as Besiktas they also face a Partizan Belgrade team that finished as runners-up to Red Star Belgrade in the Serbia League in 2013-14 and beat Neftci in the Europa League play-off. Asteras came fifth in the Greek League last term.

Roberto Martinez's Everton side, 6/4 to finish in the top six in the Premier League this season, have been handed a very difficult task as Wolfsburg were fifth in the Bundesliga last term, while Lille were third in France and Krasnodar fifth in Russia. Lille were beaten by Porto in the Champions League play-offs.

Celtic, who were beaten by Slovenian side Maribor in the Champions League play-offs, have been handed a reasonable draw. Salzburg were the Austrian League champions last term but were knocked out of the Champions League by Malmo, while FC Astra were runners-up to Steaua in the Romanian League and Dinamo Zagreb were Croatian champions in 2013-14.
