Valencia 2 Arsenal 4 (3-7 agg): Aubameyang treble books Baku berth

Chelsea news N'Golo Kante Maurizio Sarri blame injury

Despite the challenging schedule, Sarri's Chelsea became the fourth English side to reach a European final on Thursday when they beat Eintracht Frankfurt in a penalty shootout after their tie had finished 2-2 over two legs and extra time.

The results mean the clubs - which are now separated by four points in the Premier League - will play each other in the final of the Europa League on 29 May at the Olympic Stadium in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Gameiro, who was part of Emery's Sevilla side who won three successive Europa League titles, continued his fine scoring run in the competition with another - only for Aubameyang to add the gloss with two more efforts.

Both Arsenal and Chelsea will receive 6,000 tickets for the final in Baku's Olympic Stadium - which has an official capacity of 68,700.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hit a hat-trick in the Mestalla as Arsenal eased past Valencia to secure their place in the Europa League final, where they will face Premier League rivals Chelsea.

Chelsea are already guaranteed a top-four finish.

Lacazette said Arsenal had to push on now and win the trophy to qualify for the Champions League next season with a top four spot and automatic qualification almost out of reach after they picked up only four points from their last six games. Enjoy, be focused, take it like a positive; also play thinking we are playing as our supporters.

"I try not to look back, because I want to live in the present and make sure the present finishes as well as possible", he said, via the Mail.

"Of course, now it's more hard, I think".

"We needed him and we needed Laca", Monreal said. "It's all so handsome, so attractive, that it does not allow us to go further", Marcelino added. But we need to consider that our best match, in my opinion, was here in Stamford Bridge against Tottenham, three days after 120 minutes in the cup final against Manchester City. We played match 61 today.

Arsenal have revealed their team and substitutes to go up against Valencia in the second leg of their Europa League semi-final tie this evening in Spain.

Arsenal were held to a 1-1 draw at home to lowly Brighton and Emery must be anxious by a defense which has leaked 10 goals in their last four league games. At this moment, the Premier League is the best championship in Europe and, as a outcome, in the world.
