Europa League Final Live
Welcome to the Evening Standard’s LIVE coverage of Chelsea vs Arsenal, the Europa League Final in Baku.
While the lack of fans in the stadium will be apparent at the 68,000-seater Baku Olympia, with both clubs sending back thousands of tickets, the occasion itself will surely be enough to provide a memorable game of football.
For Arsenal, not only is a first European trophy in 25 years on the line, but their hopes of playing Champions League football next season too.
The Europa League champion will be crowned on Wednesday in Baku, Azerbaijan, as London clubs Arsenal and Chelsea meet with the trophy on the line. Both teams began the season in the competition and have fought hard to get to this point. Winning this competition also comes with qualification to the Champions League next season, making it even more important to Arsenal. Chelsea finished third in the Premier League and will already be in the UCL in 2019-20, while Arsenal has to win this to return to the continent’s biggest cup.

Arsenal: The Gunners will be a bit shorthanded in this one. Aaron Ramsey, who is set for a move to Juventus this summer on a free transfer, will miss the game due to injury. Meanwhile, Henrikh Mkhitaryan won’t travel with the team due to fears for this safety as a result of the tense relations between his birth nation Armenia and the host nation Azerbaijan.
Chelsea: Remember that friendly that Chelsea played in the United States last week? Yeah, now it’s fine to question whether the timing was right. Ruben Loftus-Cheek tore his Achilles in that game, and star midfielder N’Golo Kante picked up a knee injury that puts his participation in this one up in the air, according to the Daily Express. Besides Eden Hazard, Kante is Chelsea’s most important player and the engine in the middle. If he can’t go, it’s a huge boost for Arsenal.
Horrible, wasn’t it. Seeing those live scores come in during the Champions League semi-finals, knowing that you were missing two of the most exciting football matches in living memory as you cursed BT Sport and its exclusive rights to show them. Yep, we feel you.
Well the good news is that it doesn’t have to be like that for the Champions League and Europa League finals. BT has once again made the matches absolutely free to watch (hallelujah!).
First comes Chelsea vs Arsenal beaming all the way from Baku, Azerbaijan in the Europa League final this Wednesday night at 8pm. Then, at the same time on Saturday, it’s all eyes on Spurs vs Liverpool in the Champions League final from Madrid.
