Liverpool will take on Hearts for a place in this season’s Europa League group stage following the Reds’ 4-0 aggregate triumph over Gomel.

Goals from Fabio Borini, Steven Gerrard and Glen Johnson secured a third-round win for Brendan Rodgers’ side at Anfield as the Northern Irishman readies his troops for the new Premier League campaign.

Newcastle United will take on Greek side Atromitos. The first legs will take place on 23 August with the returns a week later.

Tottenham Hotspur have already booked their place in the group stage thanks to their fourth-place finish in the Premier League last season.
