Overview

The 2012/13 UEFA Europa League sees as many as four Premier League sides in contention, with European champions Chelsea one of the favourites to win the competition. The Blues are a surprise inclusion in what is commonly regarded as the continent's second-tier title, having failed to progress out of their group in the Champions League.

Indeed, had Premier League champions Manchester City fared marginally better in their Champions League group (Group C; Roberto Mancini's men finished a poor fourth), we might have seen an even stronger contingent of English sides.

Aside from these clubs, other big names in the hat for the draw are Italians Inter Milan and Lazio, Russians Anzhi Makhachkala, Germans Bayer Leverkusen and French side Lyon. And then, of course, there are the defending champions - Atletico Madrid of Spain - who are led by in-form Colombian striker Radamel Falcao. Dutch Eredivisie champions Ajax are also in the mix, after beating City to third place in their Champions League group.
