Sarri Vs Emery – The Battle for the Europa League Trophy

Later today the battle begins between two managers who are in their first season in a new club and a new league will battle it out against each other. Chelsea will be taking on Arsenal in the final of the Europa League in Baku, a game of great importance for both managers and clubs. Both managers have strong reasons for wanting to win this competition and also to prove success in their first season with their respective clubs. For Sarri, it is all about winning his first ever trophy as a top-flight manager and also to guide Chelsea to winning a trophy to cap what has been a tricky season for the team, as he believes the team deserves to win a trophy this season. For Emery, this competition is even more crucial for him as it is now the only way for his team to play champions league football next season, as they failed to secure top 4 in the premier league.

This season’s Europa League final is probably the most exciting final in the Europa league’s history, an all English final, a derby final and final between two rivals. It hasn’t been more interesting like this. Lots of expectations for this game from the fans, as both Arsenal and Chelsea fans all have their various options about the game.

For the Arsenal fans, they are very confident and believe that they have the firepower and will get the job done in Baku, considering what is at stake if they fail to win the game. For the Chelsea fans, they are a bit skeptical and are not all that confident due to the fact that they will be missing some key players through injury.


Major Talking Point

The major talking point for this game is the Petr Cech news - as reports broke out that the Arsenal goalkeeper will be returning to his former club (Chelsea) as the new sporting director for next season. This has triggered a lot of the Arsenal fans concerning the news and also whether it will be the right choice to play him in the final against a team that he will be returning to as the sporting director even though he has been the first choice goalkeeper in the Europa league this season. A very strong decision for Emery to make ahead of the game later tonight.

Everyone is really excited for this game and have lots of expectations as well. Both teams want to in it and will surely give everything to ensure that they achieve a successful season.
