The English Premier League has made history by becoming the first
league to have four teams in the finals of the Uefa Champions League and Europa League. Arsenal and Chelsea qualified for the Europa League final last night, completing an historic week with European football’s two major finals now featuring Premier League teams.
Arsenal beat Valencia 4-2 to win their semi-final tie 7-3 while Chelsea sealed their place in the final by beating Eintracht Frankfurt 4-3 on penalties after the match finished 1-1 after extra time, with the aggregate score 2-2.
It will be the first time in the history of European football that one country has monopolised the two finals and means that both trophies will head to England.
