London will be divided tonight as rivals Chelsea and Arsenal square off in a potentially mouth-watering Europa League final in Baku, Azerbaijan tonight.

The clash presents Unai Emery’s men with the chance to play Champions League football next season and they will be hoping that the attacking duo of Alexander Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be firing from all cylinders.

Midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan didn’t travel with the team due to political tension between his native Armenia and the hosting country Azerbaijan.

Should the Gunners triumph, it will be Emery’s fourth Europa League title, after having tasted success with Sevilla on three occasions previously.

Chelsea, on the other hand, will be hoping that N’golo Kante, who is a doubt due to injury, passes a late fitness test and marshal their midfield.

Star-man Eden Hazard, who is reportedly on his way to Real Madrid, will lead the Blues’ attack and hope to propel Maurizio Sarri to his first silverware as a coach.

The match will be live on SuperSport 3 and kick-off is at 9 pm CAT.
