Arsenal to face BATE, Cologne, Red Star in Europa League group stage

Craig Burley doesn't think Arsenal have enough depth to prioritise the Premier League and still focus strongly on UEL play.

Arsenal have been drawn alongside BATE Borisov, Cologne and Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League group stage.

Arsenal begin a European campaign outside of the Champions League for the first time since the 1997-98 season.

And Arsene Wenger's side will face Belarusian side BATE, Bundesliga outfit Cologne and Serbian club Red Star in Group H.

AC Milan, meanwhile, were pitted against Austria Vienna, Rijeka and AEK Athens in Group D.

The Serie A side are competing in their first European campaign since the 2013-14 season.

Elsewhere, Everton have been drawn in Group E along with Lyon, Atalanta and Apollon Limassol.
