UELFinal Match Preview: Chelsea vs Arsenal

Chelsea are unbeaten in their last seven matches in all competitions (W3, D4). Maurizio Sarri needs to win on Wednesday to boost his chances of avoiding the sack.

Unai Emery has great pedigree in this competition and his past experiences will certainly give Arsenal a shot of extra confidence against their London rivals.

Arsenal have only lost one of the previous six meetings between the two teams and the potential absence of N’Golo Kante will only make things more difficult for Chelsea.
