For the first time ever two English clubs are going head-to-head in the Europa League Final, but will Chelsea or Arsenal lift the trophy? 

The all-Premier League clash is set for May 29 in Baku, Azerbaijan, our writers, discuss what might happen in the Europa League Final.

Can Unai Emery conjure up some more Europa League magic to lead Arsenal to glory and a place in the next season’s Champions League, or will Maurizio Sarri ensure his maiden – and perhaps only – season as Chelsea boss ends in glory.

Match Preview


The first of the all-Premier League finals brings a London derby in Baku, with a chance for one of these massive sides to claim a trophy this season. 

Chelsea got here by stumbling through a semi-final against Eintracht Frankfurt, but what was really impressive was their resolve as they held on against a German side that gave as good as they got. 

Arsenal on the other hand blew Valencia away in Spain in a performance that was hugely impressive, but these showings are rarely followed by another constituent outing. 

Unai Emery may have something of a love-affair with the Europa League, but Arsenal’s inability to make the most out of their incredible assets up front due to their backline being so weak means we can’t really look to back them. 

Chelsea may not be as good at the back as they have been in recent years, but they are still better than Arsenal defensively, and we think that the likely-departure of Eden Hazard this summer will spur them on in a game they will be desperate to win in order to deprive Arsenal of a trophy, whilst securing the first of the Maurizio Sarri reign. 

While Arsenal have been superb going forward, scoring 73 goals in 38 games in the league, Chelsea can turn it on at any moment especially when Hazard picks up the ball. But perhaps most importantly, neither of their defences can be accused of being solid. 

The 39 goals conceded in 38 games for the Blues and 51 in 38 for the Gunners is an awful total, while the struggles of Arsenal’s Shkodran Mustafi in particular has been a huge talking point this year. 

With so much attacking talent on show, we think it is incredibly likely that neither goalkeeper will enjoy a clean sheet in this one as the men in front of them have not been able to defend right across the campaign.
