No kante: Strongest probable 4-3-3 Chelsea line-up vs Arsenal in Baku

Maurizio Sarri has a chance at winning a trophy for the Blues when Chelsea take on Arsenal in Baku in the Europa League final. When the former Napoli boss was appointed, his major task this season was to help the club qualify for the Champions league and he has successful done that. Should the blues clinch the Cup in Baku, Sarri would be judged fairly.

Ahead of the game, Arsenal star Shkodran Mustafi noted the similarities between both London clubs but he also claimed they would try to exploit the weaknesses of the Blues. Chelsea are coming out of a nervy win against Frankfurt Eintracht but they will be exuding so much confidence following their impressive season in the League. Meanwhile, the Europa league is the only outside chance for Arsenal to qualify for the Champions League, we expect a tough game.

Sarri have a thin squad as a result of injuries. A chunk of his key players are banjaxed with injury but he has some players that can do well from the bench.
