ARSENAL and Chelsea cannot meet in the Europa League until the final.
The draw for the remainder of this season’s competition and the two Premier League giants have been placed in separate halves.
Arsenal take on Napoli in the quarter-finals in a tough tie while Chelsea face Slavia Prague.
But fans will surely have been relieved to avoid each other in the quarters but things got even better when the semi-finals were decided.
If Arsenal get through they will face either Villarreal or Valencia in the last four.
Chelsea, meanwhile, would be rewarded with a tie against the winners of Benfica and Eintracht Frankfurt.
The Europa League final will be held in Baku on May 29 and many will be desperate to see an all-English affair.
