England has become the first country to provide all the finalists in both European competitions in the same season after Chelsea and Arsenal reached the Europa League final.

Another two goals from the Gabon global fired Arsenal through to the final, where they will face Premier League rivals Chelsea in Baku, Azerbaijan.

After Liverpool and Tottenham reached the Champions League final in the most dramatic of circumstances this week, Arsenal put in a commanding performance at Valencia to ensure their lead would not slip.

But Arsenal's attacking line-up paid dividends soon after Gameiro's opener as Alexandre Lacazette teed up Aubameyang to finish expertly for his first, later completing a stunning hat-trick to seal progression to the final.

Hazard hit the winning penalty after Chelsea played out a second 1-1 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt, Kepa Arrizabalaga having made shoot-out saves from Martin Hinteregger and Gonçalo Paciência.

After Arsenal practically bowed out of the Premier League top four race, winning the Europa League is vital to play in next season's Champions League.

The Reds and Spurs have each been allocated 16,613 tickets for the Champions League final, which will take place at Atletico Madrid's 67,800-capacity Wanda Metropolitano stadium on June 1. It's not easy because we play a very risky team, as we saw in the first leg.

"If it's my last game I will try to do everything for this club to win a trophy".

"We played the match number 61 today".

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

"We are in active discussions with UEFA for more tickets for our fans but this disappointing ticket allocation obviously presents us with extreme difficulties in how we allocate tickets to you, our loyal supporters", the club said in a statement.

The lively semi-final contest finished 1-1 after the sides had produced the same scoreline in Frankfurt a week ago. Over the last seven, eight years he's been fantastic - the trophies he has helped us win.

"We have played badly in the Premier League during the last month and now we have to use this opportunity". It was a dream to get to the final, that didn't happen. Today was really good and we played against a very hard team and we are very happy.

"To get into the League Cup final (in February) we had to play Liverpool and Tottenham and then played the best team in Europe, Manchester City".
