Van Gaal has his sights set on winning the Europa League after exiting Europe’s premier club competition last week, but whether he’ll still be in charge of the Red Devils come February is another matter.

The veteran Dutch coach, who won the UEFA Cup with Ajax, is under pressure at Old Trafford following back-to-back defeats against Wolfsburg and Bournemouth within the space of several days.

"We are now in the Europa League so now we have to win it,” Van Gaal was quoted as saying by Sky Sports last week. “That is not easy. I can say that in advance but nobody hears me. They don't want to hear me because a club like United has to win."

English clubs hoping to challenge for Europa League

Manchester United’s last appearance in the Europa League came back in 2012, where they were knocked out at the last-16 stage following a 5-3 aggregate defeat to Marcelo Bielsa’s Athletic Bilbao.

Tottenham, meanwhile, will be hoping to go one step further than last season when they were knocked out at the Round of 32 stage by none other than Fiorentina.

Liverpool also fell at this stage last season, losing to Turkish side Besiktas.
