And now Arsenal are looking to do the same as they face Rennes at the Emirates.

But could they face each other in the last eight?

Can Chelsea play Arsenal in the Europa League quarter-final?

Indeed they can.

There is no country protection in the Europa League quarter-final and any team can play any other.

This is also the case in the Europa League, where Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool memorably beat Louis Van Gaal’s Man United two years ago.

Who else can Chelsea and Arsenal face?

Chelsea and Arsenal could face the following sides:

Frankfurt or Inter Milan

Slavia Prague or Sevilla

Benfica or Dinamo Zagreb

Villarreal or Zenit St Petersburg

Valencia

Napoli
