Chelsea – Arsenal and hope for the new era
Two London teams are heading towards the Europa League title as a premise for a transformation.
Recent information shows that the Europa League final may be the last match of coach Maurizio Sarri and midfielder Eden Hazard in Chelsea shirt. While Sarri was linked back to Italy to lead Juventus, Hazard wanted to go to Real Madrid was public.
This was a rough season for Chelsea when they started impressively but failed to maintain their form. Coach Sarri was also criticized for his “Sarriball” football, causing the Chelsea system to turn upside down and many players complaining.
However, he put the home team at Stamford Bridge safely at the end of third place in the English Premier League, reached the final of the English League Cup and had a chance to take the Europa League here.
Looking into the future, Chelsea needs a title in this important moment. The team not only had internal problems if Sarri and Hazard left at the same time, but also faced a two-term transfer ban. The Europa League championship is not only a title, but also a psychological effect, as well as affirming Chelsea’s leading position in a difficult context.
We went through a difficult time when I didn’t understand the players and their way of thinking. In the middle of the season, they started to change and I had to change too, “said Sarri.” But at the moment, I love them because these are great men and players. I am happy to be with them. Of course I will consider the future and in which I love English football, as well as the English Premier League “.
Sarri, 60, has not won any major trophies in his life and Arsenal’s Unai Emery has won the Europa League three times in a row to lead Sevilla in the 2014-2016 period. This is also the first season Emery took over Arsenal and created a certain mark after 22 years under the legendary Arsene Wenger.
Arsenal did not taste the victory in Europe from the 1994 European Cup Winners title. The team came very close to the 2006 Champions League crown but lost to the final against Barca. Emery confirmed that the 25-year wait has come to an end with the match in Baku, where the team is looking for the final Champions League final next season.
There are two goals in this match but the biggest is winning the title, Emery said. Besides, we want to qualify for the Champions League. The title is important to us and Chelsea. We want to enjoy this moment, for the fans and ourselves. Chelsea definitely have the same idea. so
