Soccer: Arsenal, Chelsea to meet in all-English Europa League final

LONDON (Reuters) - Chelsea beat Eintracht Frankfurt on penalties on Thursday to set up an all-English Europa League final with local rivals Arsenal in Baku on May 29.

Arsenal beat La Liga side Valencia 7-3 on aggregate, while in the other semi-final Chelsea and Eintracht Frankfurt finished 2-2 on aggregate after extra time. Chelsea won 4-3 on penalties to finally overcome their Bundesliga challengers.

The result means both of Europe’s club competitions will feature all-English finals after Tottenham Hotspur set up a June 1 title decider with Liverpool in the Champions League.
