Chelsea and Arsenal will meet each other in the Europa League final next week. For the Blues, it’s more of an opportunity to win another European trophy but Arsenal will earn a Champions League ticket for the next season if they are victorious in Baku.
There’s also all this Baku controversy.
Willian is quoted by The Mirror: ”It doesn’t matter where we play. It doesn’t matter whether the season has finished or not. We have to play the same way, stay focused all of the time and go there to win. That’s what we want.
”A European final and a Premier League game, mixed — a derby as well. I think it will be good to show some of the best of the Premier League to the rest of Europe. A London derby in Baku. It will be a bit strange. But we have to go there with the right mentality to win this game and I don’t think it matters where we play. We have to go with the right mentality and to try to come back with the trophy.”
Willian says what should be done to get a result: ”We have to be strong and do everything possible to win this game. We are already motivated because it’s always good to win finals, always good to win trophies and this group of players has done that for many years.
We want to win this trophy so much and we have to go there and make sure we come back with the trophy.
”It’s a derby game, against Arsenal — who have a great team with great players, and we have to do everything possible to win. It’s always difficult to play against them. It will be a very difficult game and we have to do everything possible to win.
”Don’t worry, the motivation is high for us as well. This isn’t about the Champions League for us. We want to win another trophy, a European trophy. It’s going to be a very good game and we believe we can do it.”
