United face Granada while the Gunners meet Slavia Prague at the quarter-final stage.
They are eminently winnable ties for the Premier League heavy-hitters and a number of fans took the opportunity to poke fun at Spurs.

Another posted: ‘Hi Europa League, I think there could be a mistake? Didn’t see Tottenham in the draw? They were favourites so surely this has to be an error. Kindly confirm.
And smug Arsenal and United supporters were also pleased with their own routes to the final.
‘That is a dream Europa League draw. Other than Granada being in our side of the draw rather than Villarreal, it couldn’t have gone much better’, wrote one Arsenal supporter.
Another added: ‘As far as a route to the final, that was about as good as Arsenal could have got. No team is a pushover and while United got Granada, our route is the most favourable.

‘Have to say that went well even if nothing is certain with the team’s faults.’
And United followers echoed those sentiments for their side.
One wrote: ‘Granada is a fantastic draw but let’s be honest, none of these squads left are to be scared of. This is United’s tournament to lose, not the other way around.’
