Chelsea won the tournament last season and two more Premier League sides are among the favourites to claim European glory this time around

The Europa League has been whittled down to 16 teams, with possible paths to the final at Stadion Energa Gdansk in Poland being mapped out.

Arsenal were a high-profile exit from the last 32 having been beaten in extra-time by Olympiacos, while reigning champions Chelsea are featuring in the Champions League rather than the second-tier competition.

Who are the favourites to win the Europa League?

Manchester United are 4/1 (5.0) favourites with bet365 to win the Europa League for the second time in three years.

The Red Devils previously lifted Europe’s second-tier cup competition in 2017 when they beat Ajax 2-0, the most recent trophy won by one of England’s most famous clubs.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side eased out of Group L and were handed one of the draws perceived to be more comfortable in the last-16, with United facing Austrian side LASK Linz.

Inter are 5/1 (6.0) to win the Europa League after finishing third in their Champions League group and dropping into the second-tier competition.

The Italian side placed behind Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund in Group F and face a tricky last-16 tie against Getafe, who are chasing a top-four finish in La Liga.

Wolves are also 13/2 (7.50) to mark their return to European football in impressive style by lifting their first major trophy since 1980.

The Premier League side were runners-up in the first-ever UEFA Cup – as it was known - in 1972, losing 3-2 to Tottenham on aggregate, and have not taken part in continental competition since 1981.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side came second in a tough group and eased past Espanyol in the last-32 before being drawn against Olympiacos - conquerors of Arsenal - in the next round.

Sevilla are 7/1 (8.0) to maintain their position as the most dominant club in Europa League history by winning it for a sixth time.

As well as three victories under former Arsenal manager Unai Emery, the Liga side also claimed the trophy in consecutive seasons under Juande Ramos in 2006 and 2007.

They qualified from Group A after taking 15 points and face Roma in a blockbuster last-16 tie.

Bayer Leverkusen represent Germany's best chance at Europa League glory at 8/1 (9.0) after dropping down from the Champions League and comfortably beating Porto in the last 32.

The Bundesliga side will face Rangers in the last-16 as they look to win this tournament for the second time in their history.

Who are the Europa League underdogs?

bet365 offer 14/1 (15.0) that Roma win their maiden Europa League this season.

The capital club previously lost in the final in 1991 when they went down 2-1 to Serie A rivals Inter and struggled past Gent in the round of 32, meaning their tie against Sevilla is likely to prove even tougher.

Getafe have emerged as surprising underdogs at 16/1 (17.0) following impressive campaigns in both La Liga and the Europa League.

Jose Bordalas' men are third in the Spanish top-flight and were runners-up in their Europa League group, with their odds shortening thanks an impressive win over last season's Champions League semi-finalists Ajax.

Eintracht Frankfurt also clock in at 16/1 (17.0) to win their first Europa League and second major European trophy, having also won the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1999.

Who are the Europa League outsiders?

Shakhtar Donetsk are available at 25/1 (26.0) with bet365 to win the tournament ahead of their last-16 clash with Wolfsburg who are 33/1 (34.0).

Olympiacos can be backed at 40/1 (41.0) after stunning Arsenal in the last 32, whilst Rangers and Copenhagen are both out at 50/1 (51.0).

LASK Linz are priced at 66/1 (67.0) whilst Basel and Istanbul Basaksehir are both rank 80/1 (81.0) outsiders.
