How did Chelsea and Arsenal reach the final?

Chelsea 1 Eintracht Frankfurt (2-2 on agg AET, Chelsea win 4-3 on pens)

Eden Hazard hit the winning penalty for Chelsea to beat Eintracht Frankfurt 4-3 in a shootout on Thursday and reach the Europa League final where they will meet fellow Londoners Arsenal.

The lively semi-final contest had finished 1-1 after the sides had produced the same scoreline in Frankfurt a week ago.

Chelsea had looked in charge half an hour into the game when Hazard, tipped to leave the club this summer, dodged and shimmied round the Frankfurt defence on the left flank before pushing a perfectly-weighted pass into the path of Ruben Loftus Cheek for the England midfielder to score in the 28th minute.

With Arsenal and Chelsea heading towards an all-English Europa League final, fans will be scrolling tentatively through flights, hotels, TripAdvisor-recommended bars and Airbnbs in Baku.

Arsenal overcame Valencia in their semi-final second leg at the Mestalla, while Chelsea needed penalties to get past Eintracht Frankfurt at Stamford Bridge.
