Chelsea vs Arsenal: Van Persie predicts Europa League final

Former Arsenal striker, Robin van Persie, has said that the Gunners will have the edge when they take on Chelsea in the Europa League final in Baku.

The two London rivals will go head to head on May 29, hoping to end their season with silverware.

Speaking with BBC Sport, Van Persie, who spent eight years with Arsenal, said: “Personally, I think Arsenal have the edge.

“They’re a little bit better. But Chelsea have Eden Hazard and he is a very special player – at any time he can come up with something.”

Unai Emery, who has won the competition three times in a row with Sevilla, will be hoping to work his magic again so that Arsenal can qualify for the Champions League next season.
