Maurizio Sarri is yet to win a trophy during his managerial career, but is now just one match away from ending a chaotic season with tangible success.

Sarri appeared to be in danger of being ousted at numerous points of his debut year in England, but a Europa League triumph – coupled with the club’s improbable third-placed Premier League finish – would represent a fine campaign for the Italian.

As for Arsenal, finishing fifth in the table means victory in Baku is a must for Champions League football next season – but thankfully for Gunners fans, Unai Emery is a Europa League specialist having won the trophy with Sevilla in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

The Blues are hoping that N’Golo Kante will be ready for the Final, with Sarri stating that the French midfielder needs a couple of weeks’ rest to recover from a thigh injury.

Antonio Rudiger is definitely ruled out after undergoing knee surgery, as is Callum Hudson-Odoi following Achilles surgery. Ruben Loftus-Cheek will likely get the nod in midfield over Mateo Kovacic, providing the England international is fit.

Sarri faces a big call on whether to start Olivier Giroud or Gonzalo Higuain up front, though the former should get the nod given that he is the Europa League’s joint-top scorer with 10 goals.

Aaron Ramsey will not have the chance to sign off in style, with the Juventus-bound midfielder ruled out with a thigh injury.

Hector Bellerin (knee), Rob Holding (knee), Danny Welbeck (ankle) and Denis Suarez (groin) are all out as well.

There is better news for Gunners fans with Petr Cech fit for the last game of his professional career – a fitting end for the goalkeeper, considering it comes against his former club.
