Three teams must go to Eastern Europe in February - Liverpool take on Zenit St Petersburg, Chelsea face Sparta Prague and Newcastle have been drawn against Metalist Kharkiv of Ukraine.

Spurs take on Lyon - keeper Hugo Lloris facing his old team-mates - and if they come through that they could face Italian giants Inter Milan in the last 16.

It would be a much-anticipated match and evoke memories of when Gareth Bale scored a hat-trick at the San Siro for Tottenham against Inter in a match that eventually saw the north London side lose 4-3 in October 2010.

Chelsea, who failed to make the knockout stages of the top-tier European competition, will start their bid to become only the fourth club after Juventus, Ajax and Bayern Munich to win all of the major European trophies as they bid to usurp defending champions Atletico Madrid.

If the Blues knock Sparta out, they will face either Ajax or Steaua Bucharest in the last 16.

Former Chelsea midfielder Jiri Jarosik will come up against his former employers after moving back to the Czech capital last year.

Newcastle will fancy their chances against Metalist, one of the smaller clubs left in the draw. If they advance they could then face the hugely wealthy Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala or Bundesliga side Hannover.

Liverpool look to have the hardest draw - Zenit have Brazilian superstar Hulk in their line-up but the Reds will have home advantage in the second leg.

BATE Borisov v Fenerbahce

Inter Milan v Cluj

Levante v Olympiakos

Zenit St. Petersburg v Liverpool

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
