Chelsea And Arsenal To Square Off In Europa League Final

England has become the first country ever to have all four finalists in UEFA’s flagship club competitions in the same year after Arsenal and Chelsea sealed their berths in the Europa League final.

This follows a day after Tottenham Hotspur produced a miracle to overcame Ajax Amsterdam to guarantee their spot in the UEFA Champions League final with Liverpool, who pulled off a stunning second leg comeback against Barcelona at Anfield.

Arsenal swept aside Valencia with a 4-2 thrashing to complete a 7-3 aggregate victory while the Blues needed a 4-3 penalty shootout win to beat Eintracht Frankfurt at Stamford Bridge on Thursday evening to all but set up the all-English final.

The Gunners will face their English counterparts in Baku, Azerbaijan on Wednesday, May 29, with Spurs and Liverpool contesting for the UCL trophy on Saturday, June 1 in Madrid, Spain.
