    Happy enough with that draw from a Gooner perspective, either we crash out & focus on the “top 4 trophy” or we go through with the confidence of knocking out a strong team.

    Possibliity of meeting Santi in the semis & Giroud in the final!

    Odds on Chelsea should go down after that.

    Arsenal are out. The reversal fecked them over because they can't leverage their home advantage anymore. Ancelotti will be licking his chops at getting an away goal and then seeing out the game at home since Arsenal are horrible away from home.

    Am I right in thinking that if two English teams who finish in the top 4, win the CL + EL, that means whoever comes 4th in the league misses out on CL qualification for next season? :eek:
    So if City or Liverpool win the CL, and Chelsea or Arsenal come 3rd and win the EL, and United come 4th... we're fecked!

    I think were fcked if a non top 4 team wins the CL. So if Spurs finish 5th, us 4th but they win CL then yea.
    otherwise Europa has no bearing.

    I think the CL winner needs to finish outside the top 4 for that to happen.

    Maybe it's a stick to beat United but our draw wasn't easier than Atleticos last year or Chelseas this season.
    Anyway, Chelsea would be mad to focus on the league after this. El all the way for them.

    Good to have the second leg at home. Can't take it as an easy tie though.

    Didn't want to play Arsenal over two legs, so that is good. They are far better at the Emirates than away / neutral. Would still be a tough final 50/50 game if we both make it.

    Hopefully Sarri can get us to the final and redeem the league do final cup shambles.

    Why is our tie reversed again? We had our tie reversed against Rennes so shouldn't it be Chelsea's turn to have it reversed this time?

    Probably best if both Arsenal and Chelsea get to the final, though as long as they get to the semis that's good enough for me.

    Arsenal Chelsea final hopefully. Strongly disapprove of hooliganism but in this case happy to sit at home and watch the scores come in.

    Chelsea vs Napoli should be the final, the 2 strongest remaining teams.

    for who? Us? Couldn't have picked an easier one! I am absolutely confident of getting to the final after seeing that draw. Away first v Prague aswell.

    the Europa League is a far more valuable trophy now, as it has CL entry if you win. You literally would be mad to not want to win it.

    Don't underestimate SP. They put in an incredibly spirited performance to knock out Sevilla yesterday, and Sevilla have run this tournament for years :D Of course you're favourites, but still, they have proven capable of an upset.
