Arsenal will look to end our 25 year wait for a European trophy when we take on Chelsea in the Europa League final in Baku this evening.

Petr Cech starts in goal for Arsenal with Bernd Leno on the bench. It’s a huge call from Unai Emery, let’s hope it doesn’t back fire.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leads the line up front along with Alexandre Lacazette so we’ll be looking to our hitmen to provide the goals tonight.

Mesut Ozil starts behind the duo while Emery has gone with a back three of Sokratis, Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal.

N’Golo Kante starts for Chelsea despite being a major fitness doubt for the game so it will be interesting to see how fit he looks.

These are the teams:


Cech; Sokratis, Koscielny, Monreal; Maitland-Niles, Xhaka, Torreira, Kolasinac; Ozil; Aubameyang, Lacazette

Subs: Leno, Lichtstiener, Mustafi, Jenkinson, Elneny, Guendouzi, Willock, Saka, Iliev, Iwobi, Nketiah, Welbeck.


Kepa; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Luiz, Emerson; Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic; Pedro, Giroud, Hazard.

Subs: Caballero, Cumming, Alonso, Barkley, Higuaín, Zappacosta, Willian, Cahill, Ampadu, Gallagher, McEachran
