Europa League 2015-16: Who will Liverpool, Tottenham & the rest face?

Sevilla triumphed in 2014-15 but the Champions League's sister competition will get underway again in June and Goal has compiled the key draw dates for next season's campaign
The Europa League champions may have been crowned - as Sevilla overcame Dnipro in a thrilling final - but the competition rests for no man, and will begin again in July, with the first qualifying round.

West Ham – by virtue of the Fair Play League – will be the first English club to take to the pitch in the 2015-16 campaign, while Southampton will enter in the third play-off round after Arsenal beat Aston Villa to win the FA Cup on Sunday.

The Hammers will discover their fate on June 22, with a number of potential opponents in the pot.

Tottenham and Liverpool – perennial Europa League competitors – will begin in the group stages, with Spurs in pot one and the Reds in pot two.

But when are the draw dates, and who could those flying the flag for the Premier League face? Goal has compiled all of the key dates and the club's potential opponents below!
