Winning Europe’s second most important club competition is significant in itself, but there are additional factors at play here. It’s game between two London clubs, which gives it an added edge, but there are also strong suggestions that this could be the final game in charge for Chelsea’s Italian coach Maurizio Sarri and their marquee player, Eden Hazard.
As for Arsenal, they need to win the trophy if they are to feature in next season’s Champions League.
When these two teams met in the English Premier League this season, each team won in their home stadium, with Chelsea winning 3-2 at Stamford Bridge back in August, before Arsenal gained revenge with a 2-0 win at the Emirates Stadium in January.
