Their 4-1 win in Baku was also great news for French club Lyon, who will now go directly into the group stage of next season's Champions League. "I am lucky because I am in Chelsea, one of the best clubs in the Premier League, one of the best championships in the world", he said.

Sarri's side qualified by virtue of coming third in the Premier League, so the berth on offer to the victor of Europe's secondary competition instead goes to Lyon.

Another way was through the Europa League, but we have played Chelsea in this final and they are better than us. The Arsenal and, well, just Chelsea. I have made my decision already and now I'm waiting on both clubs.

After finishing third in the Premier League this season, the Blues Europa League triumph is an ideal and now familiar way for Pedro to finish a season.

The situation has given Arsenal additional motivation to win the trophy for their teammate, with defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos, who was also teammates with Mkhitaryan at Borussia Dortmund, saying: "We've had five or six years together, I know him very well, we are good friends".

Ahead of tonight's final, we want you to name every club that has won the Europa League or UEFA Cup since its inception.

"It was the last game of my career and you want to finish on a high, but I had an wonderful career", he added, noting that ending the season empty-handed was unfair to Arsenal, which was improving fast.
