Leicester, who finished 5th in the Premier League last season, were sent to Group C where they will face one of the favorites to win this season’s Europa League, Napoli.

West Ham, who finished 6th and qualified for European competition for the first time in 25 years, were sent to Group H, which will be seen by many as the easiest path into the knockout rounds. Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb were the Pot 1 team and Belgian side Genk came out of Pot 2. West Ham, from Pot 3, should advance from the group stage.

Finally, Tottenham will be in Group G of the Europa Conference League, where they will perhaps face stiffer competition than West Ham one competition above.
