Liverpool, Spurs and Newcastle clinched their place alongside Chelsea, who drop down from the Champions League after being the first winners of the trophy not to qualify for the knockout stages.

The Anfield side won 1-0 in Udinese thanks to a Jordan Henderson strike which ensured they finished top of Group A and qualified alongside Russians Anzhi Makhachkala.

Spurs progressed following a comfortable 3-1 home win over Panathinaikos, with Emmanuel Adebayor, Clint Dempsey and Jermain Defoe on target.

Although Newcastle went down 2-0 in Bordeaux, they still went through.

John Obi Mikel has been handed a three-game ban following Chelsea's stormy match against Manchester United on October 28 when the player claimed he had been racially abused by referee Mark Clattenburg.
