But they didn't and instead, Arsenal recovered to lead 2-1 at half time with two goals by Alexandre Lacazette. In the second half, Valencia was happy to defend in the hope of returning home to Spain with just a one-goal deficit to overturn.

Things were going according to Valencia's plan as the clock reached minute 90 but there was to be a dramatic finish. Substitute Henrikh Mkhitaryan drove at the Valencia defense and a thunderous shot by Lacazette was parried by the Valencia goalkeeper.

The ball broke to wingback Kolasinac who had moved forward in support. Kolasinac's floated cross to the far post initially looked to be a dreadful choice but instead, it was inspired.

Valencia goalkeeper, Neto, at fault for Arsenal's second goal was again found wanting. He opted not to come to gather the cross and then he failed to close down Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who appeared at the far post.

Aubameyang drove his volley into the ground and into the Valencia net. At 2-1 Valencia would have been favorites but that goal turned the complexion of the tie completely.Nevertheless, Arsenal will face a stern test next Thursday in Valencia.

Whowil contest the final.

The right to lift the distinctive UEFA Europa League trophy will be contested by the semi-final victors, so Frankfurt or Chelsea against Arsenal or Valencia. We will discover precisely who on 9 May,

When does it take place.

The game will be played on Wednesday 29 May, kicking off at 21:00CET (11pm local time!). For the first time it takes place just four days before the UEFA Champions League final, ensuring it comes after the end of the domestic season.

Who are the 'home team'.

The winners of the Frankfurt/Chelsea tie are the nominal home team as a result of a draw made for administrative purposes back in March. Both sides may wear their first-choice colours but if there is a clash then the club designated as the away team (i.e. Arsenal/Valencia) must don an alternative kit.

Where is it BEing Played.

For the first time a major UEFA title will be decided in Azerbaijan as the Baku Olympic Stadium stages this showpiece. The venue, opened in 2015, will also host three games at UEFA EURO 2020.

The stadium has a capacity of nearly 70,000 and anywhere near that figure would break the one-off final record for the competition of 62,000, set when Parma played Lazio in Moscow in 1999.

Is there VAR.

This will be the first UEFA Europa League fixture to use the video assistant referee (VAR) system. A fourth substitution will be permitted for each side if the final goes to extra time.
Who's the final REfree.
This will be confirmed closer to the final.

What does the winner get.

The UEFA Europa League trophy is, at 15kg, the heaviest of all UEFA silverware. To make things extra interesting, it comes without handles. There are 40 medals for players and staff. Then there is the not-insignificant matter of a place in the UEFA Champions League group stage.

Frankfurt 1-1 Chelsea: Europa League at a glance.?

Chelsea extended their unbeaten UEFA Europa League run to a record 16 in Frankfurt but were perhaps left wanting more after failing to press home their advantage.

Maurizio Sarri's team were on top for much of the evening in Germany, though fell behind during the hosts' best spell of the game. Luka Jović – who else '– did the damage, diving to guide a header inside the post.

Pedro Rodríguez restored parity just before the break, and Chelsea spent much of the second period camped inside the Frankfurt half but could not break through. David Luiz's free-kick against the bar was as close as they came.

View from the stadium: James Thorogood?

An electric atmosphere and a fiercely-fought encounter made for a captivating first leg.

Frankfurt's high-octane style caught Chelsea by surprise and Jović duly got his goal. However, the hosts had little answer to the relentless pressure they faced after taking the lead and can be pleased to have escaped with just one away goal conceded.

From his inventive, eye-catching first touches, it was clear that Loftus-Cheek was in the mood to stamp his authority on one of the biggest games of his club career, this powerful performance in midfield showcasing his rare marriage of gifts.When at his best like this, the 23-year-old is as lig.
