Hazard holds key to Chelsea’s Europa hopes


Chelsea and Arsenal meet in an all-Premier League Europa League final on Wednesday and both sides have some major injury worries ahead of the showpiece in Baku.

The Blues are definitely without Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Antonio Rudiger for the final and key midfielder N’Golo Kante is a major doubt after picking up a knee injury in training.

Arsenal’s absentee list includes Aaron Ramsey and Hector Bellerin, while Henrikh Mkhitaryan will not travel to Azerbaijan due to safety fears.

Eden Hazard to score first @ 9/2

Hazard has gone nine games without a goal and the Belgian will be desperate to impress on Wednesday in what could well be his final game for Chelsea, with Real Madrid expected to snare the forward this summer.

The 28-year-old is yet to score in the Europa League this season in seven attempts but can make his mark when it counts on Wednesday. Hazard is 27/20 to score at anytime, but it could pay to be bold and back him to open proceedings at 9/2.

Chelsea win and both to score @ 33/10

There is arguably more at stake for Arsenal as they need to win the trophy to be involved in the Champions League next season, while Chelsea are already guaranteed a spot in the elite European tournament.

However, the Gunners’ record away from home is a major concern and, although this is a neutral venue, that should be taken into account.

With talent like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette in their squad Arsenal should be able to grab a goal, but Chelsea can still claim a win and a win for the Stamford Bridge side with both teams to score stands out.
